It helps we don't have television so their options would be severely limited anyway.
Just make sure it's the old school, racist Tom and Jerry. The new version is Pokemon with recognizable characters.

Sounds absolutely horrible. Why does everything have to get so fucked up?

Underestimated the amount of lactose in a dish. Hilarity ensued...

The amount of energy wasted in the corporate world on peoples feelings. Jesus, it drives me batty when we have to include stakeholders who shouldn't be stakeholders in meetings and decisions just so they dont get offended.

When did offending someone become such a felonious act? Be offended if you want, but be offended over there, we have shit to do.

Yes. Especially at 3am when you're trying to sleep for work the next day... why do people do that? I mean... it's louder but it doesn't go anywhere.

I hate when HVAC dies on a Saturday while you are out and about, and its real fricking hot here in Charleston. HVAC company isnt responding, dang it.
I can over ride the safety, so compressor works. Its the 24 volt control voltage that is gone. Last time this happened, wire nut came loose and shorted the thermostat.
24 volts is not there. Wire nuts were loose. New thermostat, amazon prime, Monday.

I don't have AC in my house and about 360 days out of the year it's not an issue, but it's fucking hot in my house tonight. Going to break out my air bed and sleep on the deck.

Sent a letter on a long summer day
Made of silver, not of clay
I've been runnin' down this dusty road

I've been trying to make it home
Got to make it before too long
I can't take this very much longer
I'm stranded in the sleet and rain
Don't think I'm ever gonna make it home again.

I hate really hot weather. That's anything over 80 for me. Hot, muggy here too.

^I am the opposite. Any weather below 80' and I hate life. Give me hot and dry or hot and humid/muggy any day over cold weather.

Ditto. Makes life miserable at time here in Tennessee, that's for sure.

Is this some "living in Indo-China" thing? Haha. My old man used to be this way. If it was anything over 85+ he would thrive. It could be over 100 degrees outside with full humidity and he would be running around outside building shit and/or clearing fenceline (with me as an unwilling conscript) until the sun went down. Oh, but when the temps drop below 75? Yeah, good luck -- he's inside with a blanket. He said he was that way ever since he got back from Vietnam.

I hate that when I am so blind I dont look at everything up close with glasses, or touch it. The water level switch was up due to water. I looked at right side where drain is, and it was dry.
So, now I have to figure out how AC people level a tray for water to move towards drain.

That's a WTF

Move the drain, move the switch, or elevate the pan on the end where the water is ponding...

Water in that pan is typically a sign of larger failure...

Good luck.

I elevated side up to make water go towards drain. Humidity is usually pretty high here, and its been 7 years since its been installed. I am still going to get with HVAC installer and ask some questions tomorrow.
