Last weekend I was working the emergency and 24 hour shift at the AC repair center.
I was sitting at the shop around 6 p.m., and I was just getting ready to close the doors and head home.
I received a telephone call from a very frantic woman who claimed to be the person in charge of a sorority house. They were having an event that evening and the AC in the sorority house wasn’t cooling. The machine was working, but no cold air was coming out of the vents. Sometimes this is an easier problem to fix than when the machine is not running at all. I agreed to service the account and we set up the payment arrangements. I was happy to find out that the person was going to pay with cash. Sometimes the college accounts and businesses like to run an account and wait to pay, but cash is always preferred. I locked up the building and headed down to the address on the account. Traffic was surprisingly steady and I didn’t hit any traffic on my way to the address. I arrived about thirty or forty minutes after I received the phone call. I knocked on the door and a young woman answered. I didn’t expect someone young, because I spoke with a different person on the phone. The young woman took me to the area in the house where the central AC is located. She asked a couple of questions and then she left the room. She could have stayed there all night and continued to ask me questions about the AC.
