I am starting to think it is not going to work out with my girlfriend.
It is the little things that are getting to me. Like that she borrows my truck and returns it with an empty gas tank. She also eats the last of the cereal and leaves the empty box on top of the refrigerator instead of throwing it away. But the last straw was what she has been doing to my air conditioning and heating systems. Lately there has been a burned wood smell whenever I turn on the air conditioner. I ignored it for a while but now the air conditioner makes this squeaking noise whenever it turns on. So I finally called out an air conditioning company to fix it. They were working in the utility closet for several minutes before one of the air conditioning technicians came out and showed me a handful of colored pencil shaving. He said my kid must be dumping them in the vent. That is what is causing the smell and the noise. Apparently these pencil shavings are all worked into my system now and it needs a thorough cleaning and so does the ductwork. The thing is that I don’t have a kid. Neither does my girlfriend, thank God. However, my girlfriend does like to color in those intricate coloring books and her desk is right next to an HVAC vent. I went over and looked and there is some pencil shaving on top of the vent cover. Based on how many shaving the technicians found I must assume this wasn’t an accident. My girlfriend must be dumping her pencil shaving in my ductwork intentionally. I guess she is too lazy to walk to the trash can. I say enough is enough. Time for her to go.
