Uncle Raymond had to call the AC mechanic to inspect the air conditioning system

Uncle Raymond was such a happy soul, and he always made us laugh. Most school holidays, mom would ask if we wanted to stay home or go stay with him. My sisters and I chose to spend time with Uncle Raymond. He’d quit his job a while back and now builds unique home furniture from his backyard out in the countryside. Uncle Raymond had a 10-acre farm set against the most beautiful location I’ve ever seen. Last summer, we had the option of going to summer camp or to the farm. My sisters went camping, and I went to the farm because Uncle Raymond taught me more about furniture making. Plus, he paid me for all my work, and that money to a thirteen-year-old was a lot. Mom drove me there then left early the next morning because of work. Our first day was good, but the next day we woke up to a freezing house. That was odd because Uncle Raymond had set the cooling system before we went to bed. He went to check the thermostat and tried to change the settings. But, nothing changed. It seemed there was a miscommunication between the air conditioner and the thermostat. We lived not far from a town where there was an expert AC mechanic. Uncle Raymond called him to book an emergency repair since he had a service agreement with her company. The air conditioner mechanic came over as fast as she could and noticed the thermostat was faulty. It was a smart thermostat whose software hadn’t been updated in some time, causing the miscommunication.
