Mom was expecting some guests and was busy in the kitchen.
I came down after finishing some work to help her out.
Ever since I moved back home, I feel much better and can finally relax. I have some virtual assistant jobs, and I’m surprised that the pay is better than a 9 to 5. I told mom that morning I’d lend a hand to get everything after a meeting with one of my bosses. Mom was sweating in the kitchen, and that’s when I realized the house was hot. She complained that the cooling system was faulty, and it seemed this was happening on the worst day. I had to ask mom if she had called the HVAC company for assistance. Mom said she did, but it would be a 3 to 4-hour wait before an HVAC worker came to the house. We had to brave the high temperatures that grew worse in the kitchen because of all the cooking. At around 1 pm, I heard the doorbell ring and went to answer it. A young guy was standing there wearing a coverall with an HVAC logo. I let him in and showed him where the cooling system was set up. Mom walked by, and the young guy greeted her with delight. Mom replied, and they had a short conversation about the unit. She then left him to do his job and commended that the young HVAC worker was quite professional. He never once seemed distracted or irritated answering mom’s cooling system questions. After he was done, he explained the problem was all fixed and left.
