Sometimes people make everything way more difficult than it needs to be.
This is certainly the case right now, while I attempt to end a romantic relationship and move on with my life.
Of course, my ex can’t just make things simple so we can efficiently move forward. In fact, he refuses to respond to my messages at all. This means, we haven’t had any resolution to the relationship and we haven’t been able to give our personal effects back to each other. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, but he has my air conditioner. There is absolutely no way I will be abandoning my window AC unit when I abandon this relationship. In fact, I’ve owned that little cooling system for 10 times as long as I dated this bozo. I bought the little window AC unit back in college when I lived in a terrible apartment building. The rundown residence had almost no air conditioning inside. There was supposedly a central cooling system, but it never worked when I lived there. Everyday was brutally hot and humid, and my nights were spent sleeplessly sweating. At that point, I collected together all of my savings and purchased a tiny AC window unit. Since then, I’ve taken my cooling device with me everywhere I’ve lived. Including the single week that I lived with my ex. If he doesn’t want to return my messages or have our final conversation, that’s fine. But I will be coming to get my air conditioning system.
