I truly cannot stand when I have to drive home from work. Most people look forward to the drive back to their house, but lately I just can’t stomach it. As the clock ticks closer to 5 o’clock, I know that I’m going to be in for a miserable ride home. Why is that, you ask? Simple – the air conditioning system in my car is broken. It gets so hot in the summer here that if I didn’t park in the shade, my car will rapidly heat up and become a portable oven. I swear, I could cook eggs on the dashboard! With no air conditioning inside the cabin of my car, I have to drive home with all four windows down and the air set to maximum flow. Sometimes I’m lucky, and forcing the A/C system to work at maximum output causes it to cool off just a little. Most days, however, the air just comes out as hot as it did before. I can’t stand it! I wish I thought to get a warranty on this car before I bought it, as the broken air compressor for the A/C system would be covered under the warranty. Instead of paying over a thousand dollars for a new air compressor, I could be paying one hundred dollars – maybe less! That’s just how life is, I suppose. I know that I’m going to have to find a fix for the lack of air conditioning in my car soon though, as I’ve been noticing that the car itself seems to be running hotter and the engine is suffering for it. Maybe it’s just coincidence, but I’m not waiting around to find out that the engine isn’t getting enough coolant and overheating!
