19 Struggles That Are Too Real For People Without Air Conditioning

The trick to beating the heat is you can't.

Posted on

1. When you're convinced that your home is actually an oven because it's hotter inside than it is outside.

Laying on a patch of dirt outside sounds so much more pleasant.

2. When you'd rather get pruney instead of being in your room for more than five seconds.

It's probably just one of many daily baths and showers.


5. When you forget what real clothes are because you spend the majority of your day half (or completely) naked.

Pants are the Devil.

6. When you purposefully leave your home for someplace cooler and wish you never had to return.

"Hey, can I come over for an hour or four?"


"I wanna see you...and your AC."

7. When you gather every fan in the house in the hopes of replicating an air conditioner.

And it STILL doesn't do the trick.


9. And then can't fall asleep because you're far too wet to do so.

There's nothing like feelin' a bit gross right before bed.

10. When you become a pseudoscientist and experiment with different ways to get your cool on.

Let's face it, only one of the methods KINDA works.

11. When a cold beverage becomes both a drink and icepack.

Or a popsicle, a bag of ice, a wet napkin...

12. When you'll use anything to keep the sun from making things worse.

The sun is the ultimate intruder.


13. When you wish you could just live in your fridge for the rest of the summer.

An igloo sounds nice too.

15. When you begin to sweat in places you've never sweated in before.

And your sweat stains begin to look like abstract art.

16. When you'd rather be single than have to cuddle with your S.O.


17. When even your pets wished they had owners who had air conditioning.

Fido: "I never signed up for this."

19. When you find yourself sleeping in the strangest places for the sake of keeping cool.

The floor is prime sleeping territory.

On the bright side, no matter how hot it gets, you can always use the heat as an excuse to bring out your cool robot voice.
