going round to friends for dinner parties or drinks. Why at these occasions do I always attract middle age men with sandals and beards who between mouthfuls of mung bean salad and cous cous come up to talk to me about what I do.
As soon as I mention I’m a fridge / aircon engineer they launch into a tirade about how cooling isn’t required when you live this far north and how we are ruining the planet.
Well now I have a good news story to tell them about aircon. It appears that recently a boy was saved from certain death by an aircon unit in China.
The boy had fallen off an eighth floor balcony and ended up wedged behind a condensing unit. The unit quite literally saved his life.
If the owner of the flat had been a mung bean munching sandal wearer the kid would have died.
Thank heavens for air conditioning.
