I had the following phone conversation with my wife today regarding our window air conditioning unit:
Me: “Um … we need a new air conditioner.”
Wife: “What’s wrong? Does it not work?”
Me: “Not anymore!”
And if you’re wondering why the air conditioner no longer works … well, the picture speaks for itself.
Needless to say, I have never installed a window air conditioner. (I say have, as opposed to had, because I still haven’t actually installed one. That, my friends, was a fail.) Luckily, the A/C cost me nothing; the people we’re subletting our apartment from left it behind as a gift. On its way down, the A/C left me with the gift of a bloody knuckle and a scratch on my right calf (don’t ask).
I’m just glad my window overlooks an empty alley and not a busy sidewalk …
