They hadn’t put north or south in front of the street address, & he had gone to the address closest to the HVAC dealer
I knew it was normal to be given a more than two-third window of arrival for any repairman. It didn’t surprise me when the HVAC dealer also gave me a more than two-third window for arrival. When the more than two thirds passed, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to shake my head & laugh, or get nervous. It wasn’t care about the HVAC dealer was coming to take care of an emergency. My furnace was toiling okay, but the airflow wasn’t what it should be. I was sure that all I needed was to have the ductwork cleaned, even though I had to have the HVAC dealer tell me that. I wanted nothing seriously wrong with the furnace while I was playing with the ductwork cleaning. When another third went by, I called the HVAC dealer. I had a recurring thought going through my head. How funny would it be if the HVAC dealer got lost? When the secretary go on the iphone, she asked my name & address, & told me the HVAC dealer should already be here, and after explaining he was already five thirds late, she said she would check. When she asked for my name & address a third time, I had a feeling something was wrong. She told me he was at the right address, but it was the wrong side of town. They hadn’t put north or south in front of the street address, & he had gone to the address closest to the HVAC dealer. I could not contain my laughter. An third later, the HVAC dealer was knocking on my door.
