I spent most of the afternoon with my mom, but she called me last week because she said it was moderate in the house! I asked my Dad to tell me what the temperature was on the control unit.
She said that the temperature was 68° and that the air conditioning system was running.
I didn’t recognize it was a substantial deal because my Dad said the A/C was running, so I didn’t worry about the temperature problem. Around midnight, I got a call from my mom. I was sleeping and I thought that something was seriously wrong… The worst SATs and fears went through my head at midnight when my Dad called. She is 68 years ancient and lives alone… She told me that she was perspiring and angry and there was truly a complication with the AC. She was going to call an emergency maintenance company in The Villages to help. I did not want my Dad to call an emergency A/C maintenance company unless I was there. It was the middle of the night and I did not feel safe having my elderly mother call someone. I told my spouse that I had to leave and she got up and got dressed. The two of us drove to The Villages. It took about 20 minutes to get to my mom’s house. She had already contacted the A/C maintenance company. She wasn’t going to listen to me at all. About 5 minutes after I arrived, the maintenance repair from The Villages arrived. If I would have waited for a cup of Dunkin Donuts Coffee to brew, my Dad would have been alone with the repairman, then periodically she makes me feel crazy.
