I have a guest staying over at my house for another few days.
They’re my in-laws and they’re visiting my wife after a few years of no physical contact between both parties.
The pandemic put a damper on her plans to travel by plane to visit her parents during the summer of 2020. She put it off repeatedly until they finally decided to visit us in our home. Since the guest bedroom was completely ready for company, I saw no issue in letting them stay. However, they have done little of anything but complain and moan since they arrived. Despite cooking them all of their favorite foods, they criticized our cooking at every opportunity that they could. I was heartbroken, but I could handle the criticisms over cooking at the end of the day. What bothered me the most was their total lack of respect for our air conditioning system. They would claim that it was too hot in our house and then would proceed to keep lowering the temperature until it would be set to 65 and was running non-stop to keep up with demand. When the a/c quit producing air any cooler than room temperature, I knew something was wrong with the ailing HVAC system. As a result of my in-laws abusing my air conditioner, the coils had managed to freeze over with ice. This happens when the machine cycles for too long without a break. You have to stop the system for thirty to sixty minutes while the ice thaws if you want to use it again for cooling that day.
