I turned down his offer, because I didn’t think it would be appropriate
Last year there were multiple hurricanes that hit the area and caused damage. My neighborhood was spared the worst of the damages, but we still had a lot of problems during the last storm. The biggest problem of all was the fact that there was no power for 10 days. I did not have a generator in my home at the time and I didn’t have any power during the entire 10-day period. All of the food in the refrigerator spoiled, including $200 worth of groceries that I had purchased the day before the storm. I stopped up because I was worried that the grocery store shelves would be empty. My biggest solution easily became my worst nightmare. I cooked as much of the meat on the grill as I could, and I invited some neighbors to join me in the backyard. One of my neighbors from across the street did have a generator during this time. He offered to let me stay at his house so I could be comfortable and enjoy the air conditioning. I honestly thought about saying yes, because of the hot and humid temperatures. It would have been a lot nicer to have air conditioning while I was trying to clean up the mess in the backyard. I turned down his offer, because I didn’t think it would be appropriate. The two of us are single and I have absolutely no interest in dating the guy. I didn’t want to send the wrong message and end up in an uncomfortable situation. It seemed easier to deal with the warm temperatures and uncomfortable situation at home.
