I had a bunch of people on their way over to my house when suddenly my air conditioner stopped working. I don’t know if it was because the air conditioner had been working harder all day due to my oven being on or what. I only know that the temperature was 80 degrees and climbing inside. I called our HVAC supplier up and agreed to whatever emergency rates they said. I didn’t even listen, I just told them to get here asap. I then opened all of the windows and turned on the ceiling fans. The HVAC technician arrived just as the guests started arriving. By the time everyone had arrived, it was getting really hot inside. The guests made light of the situation but I could tell they were uncomfortable. Then, just as I put the food on the table, the air conditioner kicked back on. All of the guests cheered. I was very happy. I even invited the technician to eat with us. After some persuasion, he agreed. I found out over dinner that the technician was actually the owner of the HVAC company. He had come out special to fix my A/C because he didn’t have anyone else to send on such short notice. He didn’t end up charging me an emergency repair fee either. Needless to say, his is the only HVAC company I will use from now on. It is funny how the bad luck of my air conditioner going out just before a big party turned out to be a good thing. I made a new friend and now have a company I know I can rely on.
