My brother invited my wife and I to go to a concert.
My brother and his girlfriend have been getting free concert tickets for the past year. Jamie works for a record company in the front office. Every weekend she gets free tickets to any upcoming shows that are being hosted by the record company. Last weekend, my brother scored tickets to see one of the top bands in the state. Unfortunately, the show was about 150 miles away from call. I didn’t really want to spend the whole weekend with my brother and his girlfriend. They have been arguing a lot recently and my wife and I did not want to deal with their problems. Still, it was going to be an awesome concert. After much deliberation, my wife and I decided to join my brother and his girlfriend. We drove our truck and my brother took his car. We rented a hotel room on Saturday night, so we didn’t have to drive all the way back to the house after the concert was over. We took a taxi to the concert venue, so we didn’t have to pay for parking at the venue. The taxi driver was rude and obnoxious and he has a radio playing really loudly. He wasn’t running the AC, even though it was at least 80 degrees outside. When my brother asked the driver to turn on the AC, the guy grumbled and mumbled and then turned the dial to 1. We couldn’t feel the cool air in the back seat, so that didn’t help much at all.
