Needless to say, I had cracks in my evaporator coil and I needed a modern 1 to have working cooling again in my house.
I am incredibly fortunate to have nice parents. My college roommate came from a broken house and was completely financially independent of both parents by the age of 19. I remember helping him with tax forms to get him financial aid from the college after she could no longer use her parents’ financial information for FAFSA and college admissions. This was apparently stressful for him from my standpoint, despite the fact that I easily can’t imagine how bad that must have felt from her perspective. She has particularly no safety net if she fails in life and needs an emergency loan to keep her car on the road or her rent paid. I was much more privileged in this regard. My parents are particularly not wealthy, but they have enough in savings where I could ask for a loan if I particularly needed it for a drastic reason. That’s how I am able to use my air conditioner again after it broke last week. I made the mistake of neglecting my air conditioner filter variations and let the filter sit inside the component for more than five months separate from changing it. Needless to say, I had cracks in my evaporator coil and I needed a modern 1 to have working cooling again in my house. If it weren’t for my affectionate and gracious parents, I don’t suppose what I would be doing right now. I would have an harshly sizzling and uncomfortable house, that’s for sure. Now I need to make a better effort at saving so I have a safety net of my own to cushion myself and others if something ever happens that I don’t expect ahead of time.
