Scrub down the AC

I live in a many room apartment with 1 of our best friends.

Both of us easily have lived together for over five years now, so of course the people I was with and I have our schedule pretty down pat.

Both of us already have broken the home into many unusual sections, and each passing month the people I was with and I switch sections that everyone will have to clean. This keeps us from fighting about who cleans exactly what, and it ensures that cleaning gets done each week. I recently figured out that there is 1 thing that the people I was with and I forgot to think of putting on our cleaning list, and that was the cooling system we own. Both of us had never cleaned our cooling system and all these years, and I realized this fact 1 day as I was cleaning the living room floor. I randomly decided to take the task up for myself. I wanted it to be thoroughly cleaned and scrubbed out since the people I was with and I had never cleaned it before, so went over and I took it apart to clean it. I made the mistake of not taking a clear picture of what it was supposed to look like at the end, put all back together, so once I was done cleaning the old AC unit, I tried to put it back together, despite the fact that I could not personally remember how it went back together. It took me a great many nights to get that cooling system back together correctly, and now all I can do is look back and laugh at myself. Next time I clean the cooling system out properly, I will not take it apart so much. I think I will just try and clean the filter and the outside of the cooling system. I obviously told our roommate what had happened, and she still continually makes fun of me for it to this day. I do not mind it because I also make fun of myself for it all of the time.
