When my brother moved out on his own last year, he was on a very tight budget.
The place that he ended up renting wasn’t the best area to live in, but worst of all was the fact that it didn’t have air conditioning.
Of course, my brother said that he didn’t need air conditioning anyway and that he was a grown up who could deal with being a little bit too hot every now and then. I just laughed to myself whenever he said that because I know my brother pretty well. I knew for a fact that he was spoiled when it came to air conditioning. Whenever we were growing up, my brother would be a big jerk whenever the house got to be too hot during the summers. He was always complaining that our parents needed to turn the thermostat down so that the A/C would run more in our house. As a matter of fact, he ended up having to pitch in and help pay for the cooling bills when we were teenagers because he was always lowering the temperature on the thermostat without checking with our dad first. Anyway, because of this past history with the A/C, I knew for a fact that there was no way that my brother was going to be able to deal with living in a hot stuffy apartment without any air conditioning. I was right, too. He ended up coming home nearly every night and I could tell it was just because he wanted to sit in the A/C in the comfort of my parents’ home instead of in his hot apartment!
