When you are an HVAC technician, you come across some pretty bizarre situations.
I am going into stranger’s homes that would normally not allow a stranger into their home.
I am working on air conditioning units out in the middle of nowhere, and anything could happen. I love my job, but every once in a while you come across a situation I am just not sure how to handle. Last week, I was called to do an emergency repair on an air conditioning unit. It was 93° out, with 100% humidity, and when I got the call, all I wanted to do was help these people out. When I got to the house, I knocked on the front door, but no one answered. I heard people in the backyard, so I headed back there. I no sooner got around the house and spied the air conditioning unit, but I also saw a man laying on the lounger by the pool. Normally, this would not phase me, but the man was totally nude. I looked away and asked if he was the person who had called for emergency air conditioning repair? The man had the decency to wrap his robe around himself before approaching me. I found the air conditioning unit, and all I needed was for him to tell me what had happened? He said they were in the living room playing games to escape the heat when the air conditioning quit working. He walked to this chair, removed his robe and laid back down. I worked as quickly as I could to get the AC unit repaired. When a coworker asked me how the AC repair went, I said it was just another day of work.
