I own the local HVAC supplier, and I seldom take emergency calls anymore.
- Last week I was at a Christmas get-together and had a couple of drinks when my iphone went off.
My after-hours secretary told myself and others there was an emergency at the church and they had no one available to do the task. I couldn’t go out and work. I wasn’t even sure I should be driving. I told her to find an available HVAC serviceman and get them on the task. She said she had already tried all the HVAC servicemans and they were all at the same get-together I was at. I sent out a message to all the people, and nearly every man at the get-together lifted their iphone. I breathed a quite loud ‘ugh’ and started walking. I asked all the people if they thought they were in a condition to handle an emergency at the church; One young lady had only been with the HVAC supplier for 2 weeks, and she told myself and others she could do the task. She didn’t drink and she could have her bestie go along if that was okay. I wanted to make sure she felt capable of doing such a giant task as a church HVAC system. When she told myself and others she was ready, I told her to call myself and others if she needed help, and my spouse would drive myself and others over. When I hadn’t heard anything from her 2 hours later, I called her. She told myself and others she had just finished the task and the oil furnace was working again. She asked if it was okay if she came back to the get-together?
