I had it all planned for months, and it was my parents’ 30 year wedding anniversary plus I made reservations for us to go out to their preferred eating establishment, and this was no small deal. This eating establishment was seriously costly, plus you had to call months in advance in order to secure a spot. It was almost like winning the lottery to get a date close to what you wanted! I was glad that I was able to get a date that was only a few days apart from the actual anniversary date. That’s why I was so worried when it was ruined by a faulty a/c. We were fifteen minutes early, but when we arrived we learned that the a/c was acting up. All of us were upset, to say the least. It was the middle of June! There was no way we could settle down for a nice meal without a working a/c. It was 96 degrees outside! If my parents were younger plus in better shape, we may have tried it. My dad had breathing difficulties however, so he needed an air condition in this hot and humid weather. All of us had no choice but to relinquish our reservations, and find a eating establishment with a working cooling system. We angrily got in our car, turned up the a/c, and began our search. All of us ended up going to a small restaurant that had a nice wall unit a/c. It wasn’t what we had hoped for, but it was certainly better than the other place!
