$994.88

The place: Westminster, MD.  The time: 2pm.  The smell:  Burning rubber and smoke.

We have all been there. For us it was last Saturday.  We went to a birthday party for our niece and on the way home, our van starts smoking and smelling like burning rubber.  So we pulled into a gas station and popped the hood.  It was the compressor for our air conditioning.  And the bill: $994.88.  Not to make the van run better, or get better gas mileage (like 5 miles to the dollar), but it is just a modern convenience.  Think about it.  How many of you are thinking to yourself, “No air conditioning, how dreadful!  That must have been awful!  I would hate that!” 

I think we just need reminders every once in a while about the cost of convenience.  And the bill: $994.88.
