Sometimes, it’s so hot outside that the only things that you can do are go to get ice cream, go swimming, or go to the movies where you can sit in the free air conditioning for a couple of hours.
That’s exactly what I was thinking the other day when the temperature outside was in the nineties before lunchtime.
We decided that we were going to go to the movies just so that we could enjoy the free air conditioning for a while, along with popcorn and some nachos. We got to the movies, bought our tickets, and headed into the theater. But that’s when I noticed that there was definitely something wrong with the indoor air quality in the theater. Usually whenever you go inside the movie theater in the summer, the A/C hits you right in the face whenever you walk in the door. That’s not what happened this time, though. The air conditioning didn’t even seem to be turned on in that theater and it was warm and stuffy in there. This was not good, since sitting in the A/C was really the only reason that we went to the movies in the first place. We didn’t really care about the movie that was playing. I ended up going back out front to the lobby to ask the manager what was going on with the air conditioning situation in that particular theater and he just said that the air conditioning was down that day. I ended up demanding my money back because there was no way I was going to pay to sit inside a stuffy theater for two hours.
