My Grandmother is so nice and old fashioned.
- She is in her sixties and she refuses to buy a cell phone or to learn how to use a laptop, and she does everything, literally, by the book.
She uses telephone books to look up numbers of business she needs or wants to call. She also refuses to get a HVAC unit installed in her home. She has one of those big, old, and noisy air conditioner window units, and during the Summer, she cranks that up and accompanies it with one of those huge portable fans that she attached streamers to it so that you can see the air blowing from it. She says that she is fine with it, although she does admit that she wishes it could be cooler in her house in the Summertime like her doctor’s offices are. So this year, for her birthday, we decided to surprise her with a HVAC upgrade in her home… We got her friends in on our plan to keep her away at bingo at the casino hotel for a few days while the HVAC professional worked on the cooling and heating system at her house. Then I let her friend know when it was safe to return, and my Grandmother was really surprised when she saw her smart thermostat and was able to hear the soft hum of her a/c when it was turned on, but after that, she decided that she would learn to use a laptop and try to keep up with the times, especially if it would bring her relief like this contraption! I like my Grandmother.
