Oh my, this is the 3rd post today.... I guess I'm just full of witty, exciting things to talk about.
It's been hot here. Brutal, mind boggling, soak your underwear hot and we broke down and put our A/C in. I hate putting in the A/C before August. What a bunch of wimps we are. Can't take a little face melting heat??? However, this year G wanted to get a new (bigger & better!) one for the livingroom, so off to a big boxstore (to remain nameless) we went to buy one. We also pick up some other items while we are there..... 800 dixie cups, 360 pieces of plastic silverware, 4 cans of Deepwoods Off....you know, the essentials. We load the 400lb LIGHTWEIGHT! 18,000 btu! QUIET! unit and head for the checkout. "Can you handle this?" I ask him. "I have to go pee." "Sure" he replies. So off I go to do my business. Coming out of the bathroom I decide to get an iced tea at the kiosk, so I holler over to G "Do you want one?" He nods, I pay and turn around to get the drinks and he's gone. I mean G is gone. No sign of him anywhere. I didn't know he could move that fast. "WTF??" I am thinking. "Where'd he go?"
I head out to the parking lot and he's loaded the car and looking around like a man being watched. Uh oh, I'm thinking, this doesn't look good. Sure enough he says "get in the car we've got to go. I start to ask why. Dumb move "Just do it!" he says.
Driving away he has a pure evil grin on his face and passes me the check out slip. They didn't charged us for the A/C unit. Only the cups, silverware and Deepwoods Off. OMG, we are going straight to hell. This was a $300 unit and he's just going to calmly drive away because of someone's mistake?? "We have to go back" I announce. "This isn't right. I can't do this. I feel terrible". I could see the vein starting to pulse on the side of his head. "Look Sheri, the cashier didn't charge me and the guy checking the slip and buggy at the door didn't say anything either so we ARE NOT GOING BACK. This is MY a/c". End of discussion.
I put my bathrobe on and took a picture of myself in front of the LIGHTWIEGHT! 18,000 btu! QUIET! unit to share with you. Don't you just love my slippers and hairdo? snark snark
So, my question to you is what would you do? Would you take it back or keep it, knowing the fires of hell might one day descend on you for doing so?
