My coworker and I had an HVAC installation job scheduled for Thursday.
When we have an HVAC installation job on the schedule, we usually tell their customer that it is going to take all day to complete the work.
The customers never realize how much work it actually takes to install the heat pump, air conditioner, and all of the pipes and tubing. I have to get a guy down to the site just for the copper welding work. It takes two or three hours just to remove all of the old components and then another hour or two to prep the area. By the time we are finished installing all of the new machinery, it’s an 8 or 9 hour job. My coworker and I don’t usually stop for lunch. We take some snacks in our bag for lunch and some drinks in a cooler. When I have an all day HVAC installation job, my wife usually packs me a really big lunch with lots of nutritious and healthy snacks. On Thursday I got three peaches, two apples, two bananas, two ham and cheddar cheese sandwiches with lettuce and tomato, three granola bars, and two extra pieces of cheese. I didn’t have to eat hardly anything in my lunch cooler that day, because the lady of the house ordered pizza for my coworker and I. I don’t normally say yes when a customer orders pizza, but she got pizza from my favorite place and it was a pizza with sausage, mushrooms, and pepperoni. I felt awful after eating two slices, but it tasted so delicious.
