Just to make a long boring story short and somewhat less boring, the repair guy didn't show up today.
He was supposed to be here between 10:00 and 2:00, so I took a day of vacation to wait.
At 2:30, I called to make sure that he was really coming. They assured me that he was.
At 5:00 I called again to make sure that he was really coming. They again assured me that he was.
At 6:00 they called me to tell me that it would be at least another hour.
At 8:20 I gave up and decided to go to Rich O's to get some air conditioning.
So tomorrow I get to do it all over again. Except that this time I hope the guy actually shows up.
Oh yeah, my thermometer has been pegged at 90 degrees since about noon. It's still slightly cooler in the basement though.
