I didn’t know what mom’s problem was, but last week she got home from work and told me I had to pay for the air conditioning unit.
I hadn’t been in the backyard, and I had been anywhere near the air conditioning unit.
I tried to tell her I didn’t know what she was talking about, but she shooed me to my room before I could say anything. Not only was I angry that she wouldn’t listen, but I was hurt. I wasn’t sure what I was getting in trouble for, so instead of going to my room, I went outside to look at the AC unit. What I saw had me stunned. It was like someone had backed their truck into the air conditioning unit. The ground was so dry that there were no tire tracks, but I was sure that is what happened. I walked over to the neighbors and asked if they had any deliveries that day. She told me the UPS guy was there and asked why. I pointed to the air conditioning unit and told her I thought he may have backed into our air conditioning unit. I didn’t tell her mom was blaming me for the damage. She called the UPS company and told them that one of their drivers was at her house and there was the chance he had backed into the neighbor’s air conditioning unit. After checking his back fender, the UPS said he told them he had backed up into the other yard, but he hadn’t heard a crash. It was possible he had hit the air conditioning. I had my neighbor go to the house and tell mom about the UPS company.
