My friend is always kind enough to let me borrow some of their things, and they always seem to be prepared, no matter what kind of situation they are in.
This weekend, I ended up in a bad situation.
The heating and air conditioning machine I have is still fairly new, at only a few years old, and yet for some reason it quit working. I tried some troubleshooting methods myself, but nothing seemed to get it working again. Although I already knew that most heating and A/C businesses were going to be closed over the weekend, I checked online anyways, and unfortunately as I had worried about, they were all already closed. Now if it wasn’t for the fact that it has been incredibly hot outside, I wouldn’t have minded going without air conditioning that much. However, it has been nothing short of burning hot outside, and I knew my house would soon match that temperature. It was then I remembered my friend had a portable A/C and when I asked about it, they confirmed that they still had it. I asked if I could borrow it, and my friend happily obliged. The portable HVAC unit may not have been as powerful as the central air conditioning, but it was enough to last me the rest of the weekend, until the regular heating and air conditioning dealers were back open again. I was glad to have that portable HVAC device, otherwise I would have been stuck sweating to death without it!
