On occasion, I’m particularly amazed by people in the worst kind of way. Just when I actually feel that people cannot stoop any lower than I’ve already experienced in my life, they surprise me. I’ve dealt with quite a few awful apples, including members of my own family, who were ready to screw anyone over at the drop of a dime. I have several years of experience having to cohabitate with my oldest sibling who was a serial thief. I can never forget how horrifically stressful it is to constantly have to watch all of your belongings every hour of the day. I have to say, though, that he never tried to steal any components of our Heating plus Air Conditioning device, no matter how awful his situation happened to be. That’s why I was so stunned to recently hear about a repeat case of stolen air conditioner appliances… Acquaintances of mine were telling me just the other day that they had not one, but multiple entire air conditioner appliances plucked straight out of their backyard. The central cooling appliances were both brand new plus professionally installed by a local heating plus cooling specialist. The first a/c mysteriously disappeared after it had been in use for merely a week. The other AC component was stolen only afternoons after replacement. These people were stuck residing without any modern air temperature control for quite some time in the horrible heat. The latest a/c is now locked up in a cage, plus the owners are really hoping that their AC won’t walk off any time soon.
