All I wanted was for an HVAC technician to do an inspection.

I knew it was less than a week before Christmas, but I needed to have my furnace inspected.

I remembered I hadn’t called the HVAC company when I looked at my calendar.

I always wrote when I had any work done in the house, and then I saved that calendar. I went back three months, and I didn’t see when the furnace had been cleaned. I called the HVAC company and told them I needed to have the furnace cleaned and inspected. The woman at the HVAC company told me it was a kind of late to have the furnace cleaned, and she wasn’t sure we could have it done before Christmas. I told her I forgot, but I had a party coming up in a couple of days. I didn’t want to worry about the furnace breaking down before or during the party, and all my family and friends leaving because they were freezing. The receptionist didn’t seem to care about my friends and family and said she would get an HVAC technician to my house when and if she could. I worried about the furnace, but it wasn’t her fault. I was the one who had let the inspection slide, and if something happened to the furnace before Christmas, or on the night of the Christmas party, I was to blame. I thanked her for doing her best and hung up. The following morning, the receptionist called me back and told me she could have an HVAC technician at the house that afternoon. I thanked her and almost cried because of how nice she was being.
