I’m not sure when it all started, but five years ago, my husband and I had a fire.
In October, we were trying to buy new Christmas decorations for our home and they were all sold out.
It was the beginning of October and there wasn’t a Christmas decoration to be had, unless you wanted an open package or something slightly broken. This year, we went looking for a new window air conditioning unit for our living room. Our old air conditioning unit was still in excellent condition, but it was so heavy that my husband and I could no longer install it on our own. We went into town in search of a new window air conditioner. We found several new ones, but none of them were the size we were looking for. We called several home centers to see if they had the model AC unit we were looking for, but we were out of luck. Two days later, we got a phone call from the local HVAC company. We had contacted them to see if they had any AC units in the size we needed for our living room. They told us they didn’t handle window AC units, but if they heard anything about one, they would call me. This was their callback. One of their customers had bought a window AC unit just to get them through until their central AC unit was repaired. He was willing to sell it to me for what he paid for it, minus ten percent for the usage he got out of it.
