We were supposed to have band practice at school the other day, but the janitor forgot to come in early and turn the air conditioning on for us in the band room. You might think that turning on the air conditioning in the band room is a simple enough task. And it would be, except for the fact that the band room is notoriously overheated and you have to have the air conditioning turned on for hours before the room starts cooling down. That’s why he was supposed to go turn the air conditioning on for us early. However, when I arrived, the first thing I noticed was that he had forgotten to come in and do his job. The band room was super hot and there was no way that we were going to be able to have practice inside. Unfortunately for us, it was raining outside, and the temperature was really hot out there anyway. I turned the air conditioning on as soon as I got there, but I knew that it would not start cooling down until it was almost time for the practice to be over. I am pretty sure that there is something wrong with the air conditioning system in the band room, because there is no reason that it should take so long for it to start cooling off once the thermostat is turned down. I have complained to the maintenance guys at the school before, but nothing ever seemed to get done about it. Maybe I will just call the commercial HVAC company myself and see if they can come in and check it out. If I have to pay for it, then I have to pay for it.
