The dreaded moment is here: Your air-conditioning unit is staring you in the face like a misanthropic cat.

Sure, it's the start of summer and it's time to put that thing in use.

But why risk it when you could just make yourself a cocktail instead to cool down?

All that's left to do is to call up Task Rabbit to get someone to install your A/C unit while you cool off with another round and raise a glass to outsourcing.
