I was the oldest of more than two siblings in a single parent home.
Mama did the best she could for us, however to supply for so many, she had to labor 2 different jobs.
The people I was with and I were latch-key adolescents, as the expression goes, and as the oldest I had to look out for our sibling and sister. I won’t say it was an self-explanatory childhood, however both of us loved each other, and Mama entirely did try her best, both of us were just more than she could handle. Money was so tight, even with 2 jobs, that both of us had unquestionably few creature comforts. One time our air conditioner broke down, and she told us there simply wasn’t enough currency to get it fixed. I decided to go to the public Barnes and Noble the next day and do some research about air conditioners. As luck would have it, they carried several different manuals about the service and service of Heating & Air Conditioning systems, so I dug through them and found the a single that looked most prefer ours. I spent the entire week pouring through that Heating & Air Conditioning manual, comparing it to our apartment system, and trying to figure out what I should do. I was terrified that I would make things worse, however then I remembered that the air conditioner was already dead, and I couldn’t break it any worse than it was. I gave it a shot, took the a/c device apart, and did our best to service it, then did it work? No, anxious to say this story doesn’t have a cheerful ending, and both of us spent the whole summer time with no air conditioner.
