18. She Deserved It
Went on holiday with a friend and her family when we were in our early teens and had to share the room. It was a hot climate, and since we came from a relatively cold weather, we found the heat unbearable.
Friend called dibs on the bed by the air con, then proceeds to take complete control of it. The room was a sauna, and obviously, I couldn’t sleep, but she refused to turn up the AC because since she was right next to it, she would get cold.
By the third night in, after refusing my request to swap beds, I am beyond irritable due to sleep deprivation, and she’s inadvertently mocking me by sleeping soundly next to the barely functioning AC. So I turned it up full pelt while she was snoring away and had the best night’s sleep thereafter.
Woke up before her and turned it back down, so when she finally woke with a sore throat and the sniffles, she agreed to swap beds with me, and I only slightly felt bad that she had a bit of a sore throat for the rest of the trip.
