For years, I have driven around junky cars that probably should have never been on the road.
These cars were hand-me-downs from different relatives, and my father-in-law helped me get the running so I would have a vehicle to get to and from work.
They had their issues, but they were decently reliable, and I never had trouble getting to work. The only part that I absolutely couldn’t stand was that these cars didn’t have air conditioners. Sure, they had heaters, and I was always glad to be warm in the Winter. But during the Summer, the black leather interior would heat up like a furnace. I would rather stand outside in the sunshine than climb in my car without an air conditioner. The temperature would make all the seats hot to the touch, and I would always be covered in sweat after only a short drive. The first time we went on a long, twelve-hour road trip, I was so sad that we had no air conditioner. We tried to charge the air conditioner, but no cold air came out. It wouldn’t have been too bad if we could have kept the windows rolled down, but it rained a lot. This year, I purchased a new car, and it had air conditioning. It feels so nice to drive around town with cold air blasting on my skin. Sometimes I turn the thermostat so cold that it makes me shiver because I am excited. We are about to head out on a road trip in two days, and I am very excited. This will be the first road trip with an air conditioner that we have taken!
