If you have ever felt silly then you will know what I mean.
After suffering for days in the excessive heat with no air con in our lounge or bedroom we phoned the air con company again. “Hello Mick how are you?”, they said. “Hot!” said Mick. “Sorry we will come out today” they said.
Sure enough this time they turned up. I think we gave the engineer a laugh. Two minutes is all it took. He showed us where we ‘reset’ the air con unit. “Like a computer” he said in Spanish pointing at my computer.
So for about a week we have been sweltering in the heat and all we had to do was flick a switch off in the fuse box; leave it a few minutes and then flick it back on!
Oh well he probably went away thinking ‘crazy English’. What he has to remember is we come from a colder climate where air con is only used in offices and big buildings and rarely at home…. we won’t forget how to do that in a hurry 🙂
