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