Last night I was visiting with Marja after Pack Meeting and as our conversation progressed, I told her the following story. She told me that I needed to add it to my blog, so here goes...
Jenni and Cordell bought a condo just before they were married. It was dirt cheap and a great deal, so great in fact that I wasn't sure it was legit. However, when all was said and done it ended up being the deal of the century and they now have a cute little place to call home.
Jenni and Cordell had Greg and I come take a look before the sale was final. As we were going through the house I asked them if it had A/C. I could not see a unit anywhere. Jenni assured me that yes, it did have A/C. I remained unsure, but whatever...it wasn't my house.
After they were married they could not figure out why the A/C was not working. They had tried everything with the thermostat and still no luck. They had purchased a home warranty with the house so they decided that when they returned from Hawaii that they would have someone come out and see what was wrong with the air conditioning.
Upon returning from Hawaii and encountering 100 plus degree weather here in Utah, they contacted a repairman to come out and see what was up. He told Jenni on the phone that it was probably just something simple like a switch or something. I was still a little skeptical...
When the repairman arrived and inspected the home he discovered that the home did not have air conditioning. Surprise! ( at least to them haha ) Hmmm...no wonder it was not working ;) Jenni called me and could not figure out how that could of happened. I asked why she thought it had it and she said because on the inspection paper the little box by "air conditioner" was checked. Wow. Any of you reading this and know Jenni realize that this comment makes perfect sense to her. My concern is Cordell....I always thought this young man was pretty bright. Maybe not so much :) Or maybe she is just rubbing off on him. Either way, one of them should have figured this out.
But wait! The story gets better. Since they recently discovered that their home does not have A/C, Jenni and Cordell went out shopping for window units to get them through this summer (They plan to install a permanent system next Spring). While they were shopping, Jenni called me with some questions. She was wondering how many units they would need to buy. *Sigh* Really? All they needed to do was look to see how many square feet the unit cools and do the math comparing the square footage of their home. Not exactly rocket science -- at least for some people ;)
She was calling me during my conversation with Marja and we were both (Marja and I) dying of laughter by the time I hung up. Thus the encouragement by Marja to blog about this. Silly kids.
