I was grounded from my air conditioner.
I didn’t even believe it when I was grounded from my window air conditioner last week.
It’s a weird system that my parents have come up with, and I will confess that I think it’s so dumb. I really wish that they would have grounded me from anything else; However, when I think about it, I know it’s undoubtedly the most effective way to make sure that I get punished for my actions. I have a window air conditioner in my room upstairs and I am super thankful that my parents decided to buy me this window air conditioner, since we live down in the south. I think that having an air conditioner is really necessary. They did not buy me the A/C that I wanted at first, but eventually, they purchased me this new window air conditioner as a gift. I love colder temperatures, and they realized that about me. I was so thankful for the air conditioner, but I never even realized that they might use the air conditioner as leverage against me. And then once I realized that, I discovered that I wasn’t as gleeful about the air conditioner anymore. Honestly, I cannot even believe that they did that to me! Plus they didn’t just take the air conditioner out of the window, because they believed that it would be too much work for them to do. Instead, they turned off the breaker that controlled my air conditioner! And since the breaker box is in my Mom’s office, there is no way at all that I could turn the air conditioner back on. I am allowed to do anything else in my room. But the temperatures are so warm in there that it ruins the whole experience.
