Our A/C went out.
No warning, no call in advance. It just decided to go kaput.
Normally this would not be a huge problem except it happened on Saturday night. At 10:00 pm.
A/C goes out at 10 pm on Saturday night and Captain Kid is ready to
break take things apart and wants to start working on it immediately. There are a few problems with this scenario.
1. He is not an A/C guy
2. It's 10 pm at night.
So you know who is going to get stuck holding the flash light? But I pointed out at least it was night time when it went out and not in the heat of the day. The house was reasonably cool and the sun was not shining.
A few serendipitous moments before the air conditioner actually went out I was having a conversation with @muftopmommy also known as Janet F. Not following her on twitter, go and do so now.
Anyway, we were chatting and she typed in DPESM. I thought it was a pretty cool acronym that I was just unfamiliar with. Nope, instead she had a finger glitch. After another couple of tweets she came up with this DPESM = Don't pout everything seems marvy.
I thought it was brilliant.
Sunday morning we gave in and called a service company to come out and take care of this. A ridiculous amount of money later and we had a working air conditioner.
Fast Forward Monday. Battery in Captain Kid's truck died. Wouldn't be a big problem except I was the one driving it and he was not around to help me out with this problem.
Suffice it to say, today, after I was over my self imposed pity party I found a reason to apply DPESM.
