Sometimes, we see the most bizarre twists of fate in our lives. It could be a situation where a teacher becomes a student, while the former student becomes the professor. It could also be a situation where a repairman is called for fixing an appliance, only for the repairman to cause damage to the appliance that needs repairs! This happened to me just last weekend, as I called the local heating, ventilation and air conditioning company to come inspect my outdoor A/C unit. The condenser unit had been making this light grinding sound for days, and I wanted a professional to come check out the equipment and see if I had something to worry about. When the professional arrived, he walked over to the outdoor A/C unit and instructed me to cut power to the unit. After about an hour of him tinkering with the outdoor unit, he had me return power to the device. Despite being inside and about thirty feet away from the condenser unit, I could hear the unit’s grinding sound at a much higher decibel as soon as I flipped the switch! Now the unit was so loud, I could barely hear the HVAC professional as he told me this repair was “beyond his expertise”. Imagine saying that to a customer, knowing that you’ve just caused their outdoor air conditioning unit to fall into a further state of disrepair! I felt sorry for my friends, who were supposed to come over that night and enjoy a great tabletop game with me. Instead of focusing on the game, I knew they would all be too distracted by the awful noise outside. I can’t wait until the other HVAC service company comes, and hopefully they don’t have the same guy working for them!
