Once again, you will live, any flipping out wont make her help you, if anything it will make her want to help you even less. If it's so hot, you wont want the oven on and hot water in the shower anyway.

Quoting LucyHarper:

You get more flies with honey than vinegar, flipping out won't make her help you any sooner. Try calmly speaking to her to help your problems fixed, listen to her reasons if she wont do it right away, it's only AC, people lived for thousands of years without it.

I have friends who live in Miami, it didn't go above 85 today, gets that hot where I live all the time in the summer and we don't even own an AC. Be kind, be patient, and maybe you can get somewhere with her.

 No you did not. It is her job, regardless of the time of the complaint. I would call the owner and report her. You should be able to find a phone # from 411 or go back to the manager again, without telling her you will be filing a complaint about her.

It depends on why type of apartment you live in. I have only lived in apartment complexes that are run by a corporate management company but do have employees that live on site. I would never knock on the manager's door or leasing agent's door on his/her day off. My cousin was an apartment manager years ago and would not answer when people knocked on her door to complain on her day off. At my cousin's complex, and the complex I lived it, if you called when the leasing office was closed, the call was transferred to an answering service and emergency maintenance would be sent in cases of true emergencies, like a busted pipe, but not for air conditioning, hot water, or broken stove. Being said, she didn't have to be a bitch, she could have told you to call what ever number. If you live in a small building with an on-site manager that is oncall 24/7, then I would have been highly pissed too.
