My girlfriend and I have booked a two week trip halfway across the globe in a few weeks! We are still young and don’t have a massive amount of money, so I thought it would be smart to pick up a babysitting job for our neighbors to make a little extra cash on the side. When the two of us go on this trip neither of us want to have to miss out on doing activities or eating out due to financial issues. From the beginning, I knew from that this wouldn’t be just another simple job. While the kids seemed great, everything else was not! First of all, it was so tepid in that house! Even though it was still early fall the heated gas furnace was on full power, one of the items on the long list of rules that I was told to comply to while babysitting these two kids was to NEVER adjust the heated gas furnace and to never turn on the a/c. The kids like it hot and the a/c unit is strenuous to shut off once it is turned on. One day while the kids were taking their nap, it was so tepid in the room I was irritated. I decided to turn on the a/c unit for only a while so I could cool off finally. The moment that I made this decision and turned on the power to the a/c unit, the unit sprung to life and began making a loud humming noise, then not only was it loud, but it felt like it was shaking the entire room! I tried to shut it off, but the unit was so old that I couldn’t figure out how. I eventually had to call their parents to have them come and shut it off. I had already woken the kids up from their naps, and they were not cheerful. I suppose I might need to look for another side job sooner than later!
