My buddy Greg and I have a little running joke we share between us.
It started years ago when we were out drinking together. Greg excused himself to go to the bathroom, but snuck outside and moved my car around the block. I was convinced it had been stolen, and Greg lost his mind laughing at me! After that I struck back by stealing the TV from his bedroom when he was at class. We always give the stuff back, we aren’t stealing to keep these things, just to mess with the other guy. I was very impressed recently when Greg managed to steal all the air conditioning units from my house! I don’t have central A/C, I use a series of small window mounted units in four different rooms of my house. A window mounted AC unit is strong enough to cool off one room, so I have them in the kitchen, the living room, and both bedrooms. When I got back from a workout at the gym, I saw that all four of the air conditioners were gone, and I was impressed at the dedication to our joke! Have you ever tried lifting one of these air conditioners before? They may look small, but they are dense, and the HVAC components inside make it insanely heavy. It turns out Greg recruited a couple other friends, so they could dismount the air conditioners and hide them upstairs in the attic. I had to bribe these same guys with free beers to get them to bring the A/C units back down and help me install them again.
