Language barrier really cost us

We made sure to call the owner of the beach house the minute that we noticed the air conditioning unit was no longer working, but that didn’t end up doing much to help us.

My wife and I have been on vacation for nearly a week now, and it has been interesting to say the very least. In years past we always went to the same vacation spot at our favorite ski resort, but for vacation this year we decided to switch things up. We booked a two week vacation down in the southern islands where there are plenty of beaches and sunshine for all to enjoy. We have been enjoying our time here, but last night we had a very big problem arise. Our air conditioning unit in the beach house we are renting broke down, and due to a language barrier we haven’t been able to get much help to fix it. We made sure to call the owner of the beach house the minute that we noticed the air conditioning unit was no longer working, but that didn’t end up doing much to help us. The owner ended up calling over to a certified HVAC repair tech that works for him and told him to come help us. Seems like a good idea, right? Well, the problem with this was the fact that this HVAC repair tech doesn’t speak a lick of english. It took at least an hour using a blend of hand signaling and google translate until he was able to fully understand the problem we were having. We are confident that now he knows there is a problem with the AC unit it will be a quick fix and we will be able to get back to enjoying the sunshine during the day and the air conditioned beach house in the evening!
