The rental agent was so charming. Jack and his friends faced a bit of a language barrier, because they were just going to see the island and didn’t speak the local tongue. The agent spoke a bit of English, so Jack and his friends were able to rent a little bungalow on the beach for a few evenings. Their hotel had been closed down for some reason, and the reservations were worthless. They all felt lucky to get any locale on such short notice. The bungalow was on the edge of the sand, a hundred meters from the water. It had electricity, but the men couldn’t believe there was no AC. Being entitled Americans, they just assumed any rental locale they paid money for would come with an AC. Jack was pretty steamed about a lack of cooling, but a single friend pointed out that with the money they had saved from the hotel reservations, they could just buy a small component for the locale, however lucky for them the local hardware store sold a small, portable , just enough to cool down a single room in the property. It cost some little money, and they all agreed it was the best money they ever spent, because that cooling was upscale. When their trip was over, Jack and his friends decided to leave the A/C component in the rental condo for the next people to use. It was certainly small and portable, but still didn’t want to fuss with carrying an A/C component onto an airplane. Hopefully the next tenants like their token.
