The air conditioner would not cool the room any lower than 74°
My boss knows that I hate flying on airplanes, so he usually tries to send me to business meetings and proposals that are close by. Last month there was an investor that was getting cold feet and my boss asked me to fly across the country to Phoenix, Arizona. He offered to let me use his personal plane. The thought of getting into a much smaller airplane sounded like a terrible idea. There are a lot more small commercial and charter planes that go down than 747 and jets so I decided to say no to the offer. My boss told me that I could pick any hotel that I wanted and expense a car and driver. I chose a five-star hotel across the street from the business where I was going to meet the client in Phoenix. I flew into Phoenix on a red-eye flight and I was there before the hotel officially let guests check into their room. The manager of the hotel asked me to give him an hour and he said the room would be ready. I went to a restaurant nearby and had some lunch and the room was ready when I came back. I had a great view of Phoenix from the 12th floor hotel room. Unfortunately, problems with the room air conditioner kept me from staying in that room with a great view. The air conditioner would not cool the room any lower than 74°. I wasn’t going to stay in Phoenix in a hotel without air conditioning when the daily temperatures were supposed to be 104° all weekend.
