Last month, I was happy to be able to have some friends over from out of state to visit my home.
I haven’t seen them since we all graduated from high school and went our separate ways.
We all went to different colleges and all and we just didn’t manage to keep in touch. Now at this golden opportunity where many of my old buddies were able to come back out to my place, I definitely invited them to come. I was the only one who decided to stay in our home town and they missed it here. We decided to go out to eat at one of the last standing eateries from back in the days. Everything else was new, but this old Mom and Pop shop was the best. I think the only thing new about the place was the upgrade to their HVAC system which was easily noticeable. The air quality improved tremendously too, I think because they installed an air purification system in the place. So we ate and reminisced about the old times. When we went back to my place though, I was incredibly embarrassed. It was overheated in my house and I immediately went to look at the thermostat. I couldn’t believe it was 83 degrees inside and I couldn’t get the A/C system to work. Luckily, one of my friends said he went to a trade school to get his HVAC certification. He said he got certified but he never ended up working for any companies, he just did some contract work here and there. He was able to figure out the problem, which was a coolant leak. Because he was certified, he was able to get the right coolant and refill my A/C system. It was working perfectly after that!
