Last night when I was going to bed, I was checking on my emails. As I was scrolling through them, I noticed that I had received an amazing offer on a trip to the beach for three days. The offer only lasted for 24 hours, but it sounded almost too good to be true. A beach house, a rental car, and a free surfing lesson were all included! Before I could talk myself out of it, I went ahead and bought it. Two days later, I arrived at my vacation house. It looked almost the same as it did online, until I walked inside. I noticed how hot it was inside, and then I noticed that there was no air conditioner installed in the house. There wasn’t even a ceiling fan to keep the air moving! It was almost ninety five degrees outside and I was sweating bullets, so I called the customer service number that was written down on the table. After waiting on hold for almost half an hour, I finally connected with a man who apologized for the inconvenience. Apparently the beach house was just built, and the HVAC company in town had not yet had one of their employees come and put in an air conditioner. He told me that in a short while an HVAC tech would be out to install the a/c unit. After waiting for a few hours, I finally hear a knock at my door. It was the HVAC tech, and he hands me a mini portable a/c unit and then goes back to his truck and drives off. So all I have to stay cool this week is a measly portable a/c unit. I guess I learned my lesson about taking “last second” vacation deals on sketchy websites!
