You see, a few weeks ago, the humans decided that because the weather has been getting warmer, it would be a good idea to turn on the air conditioning unit in the living room. At night, they'd turn it on, feed us, and go to sleep in the human room (that one room of the apartment we are not allowed to enter).
Everything good so far, right? Wrong. The A/C makes a low humming sound that has been driving us absolutely bonkers. Nuts. Insane in the piggie membrane. We try to put up with it, but we can't sleep, and so on behalf of the rest of the guinea pigs I wheek and scream as loud as I can.
The humans wake up. Groggy, they stagger to our cage and throw some pellets our way. They check our water. They give is hay. The pellets usually distract me for a bit because, come on, pellets are awesome.
But they never address the root of the problem. And so we wheek again an hour later.
"What do you want from me?!" the humans plead. "Why are you doing this to me? I just want to sleep through the night without being woke up!!"
Yeah, well so would we! But that air conditioner is driving us crazy, and we can't sleep with it on!
You would not believe how long it took the humans to realize what we've spent weeks trying to communicate to them. Stupid humans.
Anyway, now that they see how much we hate the sound of the air conditioner, they thankfully have learned to turn it off at night. Finally, we (all) can get some sleep.
