We had planned a high-quality get-together for our kids and it had been going just as we planned. Even the children we didn’t care for were dancing and having fun, rather than making nuisances of themselves. They were also enjoying the food we had prepared, especially the ice cream my wife and I bought earlier. The clown was really something – Even the adults were having a laugh over his tricks. So we were hardly aware of the change in the temperature, at least until we observed one little boy trying to open up a window. Oh no – the HVAC component had stopped working! I hadn’t heard the outdoor compressor running for over an hour! Who could imagine that the HVAC would quit now of all times? Us planners had made sure to have the AC checked out before the get-together. So when I called up the HVAC corporation, the reason for our discomfort became apparent. No HVAC specialist had come to check on the component as we had expected. Till this point in time, I don’t know if that neglect was on the behalf of the HVAC provider or his servicemen. Either way, it was a clear classic of passing the buck. The children didn’t appear particularly bothered by the change in air quality, fortunately for us. We quickly opened up all the windows and happily observed, as the fun didn’t seem to miss a beat. The adults were much more affected by the absence of a/c than the kids. People should live up to their word though, especially when kids are involved. I’ll never employ the services of that HVAC supplier again, no matter what.
