When my sister’s small business took off, she needed some help looking for an new office space.
I agreed to help her look, because I had some vacation time saved.
We searched all over town, but everything was too expensive or too small. My sister really wanted to find an office space in a large building, but everything was unaffordable. When we found something in her price range, it was too far on the outskirts of town. When my sister found a cheap place on Craigslist, we went to look at it. Everything seemed to be in tip-top shape, and the office was big enough for my sister to grow. My sister and I asked about the rental price, and it was actually affordable and well in her price range. While my sister signed the lease papers, I couldn’t help but think something was wrong. She was getting a great deal, and we were still close to the city. Monday morning, my sister and I packed all of her things into a U-Haul and moved them to the new office. As soon as we walked in the door, I adjusted the thermostat. It was already stuffy and humid in the office, and I knew the air conditioner would help. Unfortunately, nothing happened when I adjusted the thermostat. I expected the air conditioner to come on, but nothing occurred. I checked to make sure that the cooling function was selected, and it was. When my sister contacted the landlord he told her that the office did not come equipped with central heat or air-conditioning. Now what are we going to do with no central A/C and a 12 month lease?
