A silly A/C mistake

I got a hotel room recently on vacation that was in a really nice area.

All of the usual accommodations were very nice.

The bed was big and comfortable. The view from the balcony was very nice. The bathroom was pristine and lavishly supplied. I had plenty of towels, a good brand of coffee for the morning and a few other things that I really appreciated. But of course I would have traded all of that nice stuff for a functional air conditioner! It was warm in my room. I kind of ignored this until I got settled, and then I checked the thermostat. I couldn’t figure out for the life of me why my room was not getting cooler. I could not believe that hotel staff would overlook something as integral to a customer’s comfort as a functional thermostat and/or air conditioning system! I decided to go right back down to the lobby to get help with my air conditioner. They sent someone up to check on it because they said that they’re really shouldn’t have been any issues with it. I begged to differ! Well it turns out that I was ultimately being rather silly. The person they sent up with me to fix the air conditioner problem took a look at the thermostat for a minute. He then pushed a single button and air started surging through the vents shortly after that. Of course, all I could ask is what he did, and he simply replied that he turned the thermostat from “fan” to “cool”. I could only embarrassingly ask him why it was not set to cool in the first place and he apologized and said that the previous occupant must have left it on the fan setting and the hotel staff overlooked it.
