It was finally that time of the year when I could get away for a few weeks and enjoy the sun.
Summer for me is the best time for a mini-vacation from work.
The company I had built had become my whole life. But, for a few weeks each year, I take off to the coast to relax. Being at the ocean’s edge has always rejuvenated my spirit ever since I was young. I managed to find a rental place that had amazing beach houses. Normally I stay in hotels, but I wanted to try out something different this time. I liked the beach house from the moment I walked in because my joy was short-lived. The space was hot, but I thought it was because the cooling system was off. I went to turn it on, but it wasn’t cooling the beach house, which was quite frustrating. I had to open all the windows in the house to let in the cool evening breeze while placing a call to the rental place. Their ad had said the house had an excellent cooling system, but that was far from the truth. The person I spoke to was apologetic and assured me they’d have someone at the beach house early the next morning to fix the cooling unit. I had to sleep with open windows that night. I was busy making some breakfast in the morning when an AC worker knocked at my door requesting to fix the faulty cooling unit. It took him about an hour to inspect and make repairs which restored the cooling unit’s function.
