I walked into the grocery store lasted week and it was so hot that I was afraid my ice cream would melt before I got through the checkout line.
I stood there for a couple of minutes and finally asked what was wrong with the air conditioning. We lived in the south and the air conditioning should be on. The clerk told me the air conditioning was broken, and as soon as the HVAC company thought it was okay to show up, they would. I looked at her and told her that I was sure someone was on the way, if the manager had actually made the call. When I finally got home, my husband was sitting at the table. I asked if they had gotten a phone call from the grocery store. The air conditioning was broken, but no one had arrived to repair it. He called the HVAC company to see if they had received any phone calls from the grocery store. They said no one had called. He put on his hat and jumped in the service van. He said he was going to the grocery store to see if he could help with the repair. I went with him and when we got to the store, there still wasn’t any HVAC technicians around. We went back to the office, and the manager sat on his chair with his head in his hands. He was wondering where the HVAC technician was. My husband asked who they called, and when he answered my husband frowned. He told him that was funny, because he owned the HVAC company and there were no calls for HVAC service at this location. The manager forgot to call.
