So we had planned a wonderful celebration for our kids, and it had been going swimmingly. Even the bashful kids were dancing and having fun. They were also enjoying the food we slaved over, and especially enjoyed the ice cream we had forgotten about – until one parent surprised us with several giant containers of it. The clown was hilarious, too. Even we, the adults, were laughing way too hard over his tricks and gags. Caught up in the moment, we hadn’t noticed the change in the temperature, at least until both of us noticed one little fellow trying to open up a window. Then it dawned on us that the Heating and A/C component had stopped working. Oh no! I hadn’t been so upset in a long while. Who could imagine that the Heating as well as A/C system would cut out like that, and now of all times? We even made sure to have the A/C thoroughly checked out before the celebration. When I called up the Heating and A/C company to complain about the unit, the manager admitted that no Heating and A/C specialist had come to check on the unit. They insisted it was because of how busy their other service calls where, and how we should’ve caught it sooner! It was a classic case of passing the buck. Fortunately, the children didn’t appear particularly bothered by the change in air quality. Every one of us suddenly opened up all the windows and fortunately, the fun didn’t skip a beat. Us adults were much more affected by the absence of air conditioning, but I’m glad the kids had fun. Still, people should live up to their word! Especially when kids are involved. I’ll never employ the services of that Heating and A/C supplier again, that’s for sure!
