"It's not the money. Money come and go. It's about the respect you show me. That means the world to me. Thank you thank you thank you."
Mission accomplished with lots of cools.
AND... the air conditioner behaved very nicely. My former air conditioners would kill the circuits the minute she turned on her monster vacuum cleaner. So we always had to turn it off while she sucked up dirt from my rugs. Today we tried not turning off this new one and zero problems. Yeah! My house is now both cool and clean.
