Sometimes I’m really happy that I have big brothers.
Don’t get me wrong, oftentimes they are a total pain in my ass and I wish that I was just an only child.
I can get very upset trying to deal with all of their toxic masculinity and idiotic antics. Other times, I feel like I am blessed to have these humans in my life as knowledgeable, guiding forces. I’m happy to report, last week was one of those times when I felt positively about my siblings. It really helped that my oldest brother knew a thing or two about indoor air quality control systems when we found ourselves in a bit of a pickle. You see, I was moving out of my old residence with the help of my brothers when we realized that my cruel ex-roommate had to change the temperature control settings on the centralized thermostat. It was nearly 100 degrees outside while I was moving, and the air conditioning system was cranked up to 80 degrees inside the house. Then, my roommate put a passcode on the temperature control unit so I absolutely could not change the indoor air temperature to make it comfortable for the move. It was a cold and bitter thing that she decided to do. Unfortunately for her, my oldest brother knows a thing or two about thermostats and HVAC systems. He simply popped the air quality control unit off the wall and rewired the air conditioning system to the proper terminal. Suddenly, the central AC unit started chugging away in the background. Without the thermostat to tell the AC system to chill out, the air conditioning unit ran the entire time that we moved my stuff. Thank god for my resourceful brother.
