My dad said that they didn’t have A/C when he was growing up

Once he got used to it, he started to love it and he looked forward to working inside where he could start cooling off every afternoon

Back when he was growing up, my dad didn’t have any air conditioning in his house. As a matter of fact, he said that he didn’t really know anyone in his whole town who had central air conditioning in their home. Back then, A/C was something that you only found in really rich people’s homes. And my dad’s family wasn’t rich. His mom stayed home with all the kids and his dad was a farmer and so they didn’t have a lot of extra money. But then my dad started to work at the bank sometimes because he was really smart when it came to numbers. He got a job cleaning and doing maintenance work there during the afternoons after school and he loved it. He said that the best part of the whole job was the fact that he got to go to work in the air conditioning every afternoon. He said that the first day he went inside the bank into the cold air conditioning, it nearly took his breath away. He was so used to being outside, working in the hot temperatures and the sun on the farm that the A/C really surprised him. Once he got used to it, he started to love it and he looked forward to working inside where he could start cooling off every afternoon. He said that the whole time he was working at the bank, he always thought to himself that when he grew up, he would have central air conditioning in his house the way that the bank did.
