About 10 years ago, my family and I moved to Birmingham, Alabama.
I got a job working at a hospital there and the pay was really good.
I was making six figures and my family and I got a really nice house in a Birmingham neighborhood. We were happy for the first 6 months that we lived in the city. We traveled all over the place and visited all of the different parks, museums, and outdoor activities. Then summer started to peek its ugly head around the corner. It was only March when it was 90° outside. I wasn’t looking forward to any of the summer months. April was even hotter and May made me wish that we had never moved. The summer temperatures were really hard on our AC system. We were in a rental house, but it was our responsibility to pay for repairs for the AC unit. During the first summer, we had two problems with the air conditioning system and they were both expensive to fix. I’m really surprised that we lasted another 2 years after the first summer and all of the problems with the air conditioning system. We were very thankful for a local Birmingham AC repair service that allowed us to pay with a post-dated check. The first repair happened very quickly after we moved into the place and we didn’t have any money. Thankfully the Birmingham, Alabama AC repair business allowed us to post the check for 3 days later. The next time we made sure to call the same local repair business.
