I knew I was going to be late when I was showing up for the next house.
I had called the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C supplier early on and told them I was running about a half an hour late because of a problem I had found in the last job.
The dispatcher told me calmly that if I wasn’t there within the next minute, the owner of the house would not be home for the appointment. This was the first time I was now working on our own, and I sure had a lot riding on this job. As an Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C specialist, the group of us pride ourselves on being as punctual as possible. I didn’t assume the last furnace service ever was going to end up being a major repair. I had to do the job and get it done on my own, and I didn’t mean to be late for the next job. I asked the dispatcher if she could patch things over for me and explain that I was now working on an emergency repair. I knew she easily would do her best, but it didn’t stop me from feeling guilty for being late. Then, I got the iphone number of the client and I tried to call her, however she didn’t answer. I heard that I was going to need to go to her house the following day, on our own time, and do the full Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C inspection on repair of her furnace. I had plans for that day, but our Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C job had to come first.
