:p. Exhausted
Big heat wave this week, as with 3/4 of the country so I figured I'd buckle down & finally get that air con in the window. Only been here decades.
Well the reason I've never had one is that putting it in is a PAIN IN THE ARSE.
Took my whole Sunday and I had to call out of work to boot. Dug out the old power tool (yay found it!!) Then i cant find the tin of nails & screws so off to store. Air con says front need to be 1/2 inch higher than the back. Need extra wood. Cant find scrap. Buy 2 new pieces. Buy extra brackets. Screwdriver wont drive screws thro 2x4 and windowsill. Buy drill bit & more screws cuz stripped others....
Window wood turns to powder...


Call out of work

Build new window frame that fits inside existing one

All weight now on two tiny brackets by air con design

Wtf

Screw everything into MY frame. Air con not tilted

F it

Did I mention this is the air con I've been dragging from house to storage & back for 6-7 years so dusty & banged up & I've never turned it on to see if it even works? Cuz..yeah, that.

My hair is soaked. My polo shirt is soaked. Everything is soaked. Not like sweat under the arms of whatever. No. Soaked like dunked in a pool.

Summer. Yay.

Least I had a hotdog. AND IT WAS GOOD.

Btw, F my family & their "but why dont you...?".
F YOU ALL. IF THAT WAS AN OPTION I'D HAVE DONE IT. I'M NOT OBLIGIED TO KEEP EXPLAINING 6 WAYS TO SUNDAY WHY IT WONT WORK UNTIL YOU ARE SATISFIED AND THEN GO BACK TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION. WE'VE DONE THIS SAME ARGUMENT ON THE F-ING AIR CON FOR DECADES.
W T F

LIKE, THE COMPUTER IS F-ING PLUGGED IN! I DO NOT NEED TO SEND PHOTOS OF THE SOCKET TO PROVE IT TO YOU. I TOLD YOU I NEED A PART AND ASKED WHERE TO GET IT.


O.o

My. I am overheated.
