I thought my hands were going to turn blue

My friends and I went to a poker tournament that started at midnight.

It was a special fundraiser and part of the fees from the tournament went to the Cancer Research Foundation.

My friends and I were excited about the poker tournament, because a couple of celebrities were planning to play in the game. Around midnight, I entered the poker room and picked up my seat assignment and ticket. I noticed the indoor air temperatures right away and I was extremely thankful that I wore a hooded sweatshirt that evening. The casino is always a very cold place, but it seemed exceptionally cold that night. My friends arrived a few minutes after I was seated. One of the guys was at my table and both of the girls were seated at different areas in the room. It would have been nice if we were all at the same table, but likely unfair to the other five people. The air conditioner was running on high the entire time the tournament was being held. I was moved to a spot under the air conditioner vent when we changed tables after the break. I was thankful for my sweatshirt, but I honestly thought my hands were going to turn blue. It was very cold inside and the air conditioner made things worse. A couple of times, I’m sure my hands were shaking out of control. I’m sure I wasn’t the only person bothered by the cold, but at least the shots of Crown Royal that made my body feel warmer. I had four or five while I sat at the final table of the tournament.

I knew the customer was going to cause some problems

I went to a residential repair to help a customer with a heat pump problem.

While I was working on the heat pump repair, the customer tried to ask me a bunch of questions about the air conditioner.

I was trying to be helpful and I did my best to answer their questions, but I was working on the heat pump and I had a lot on my plate at the time. I politely asked the customer to give me a few minutes to work on the heat pump and she got very upset. She disappeared into the house and I finished working on the heat pump repair. She signed the invoice and didn’t say anything to me at all. I went back to the office and my boss wanted to speak with me. The lady called the office and told my boss that I was being rude and discourteous. He wanted a full explanation of the events and he wanted me to sit down and write it all out. I couldn’t believe my boss actually believed a word that came from her mouth.The guy made me sit in the office and fill out a full page report of all the events that occurred that day. I thought he was going to give me a suspension, but he didn’t say anything else after I filled out the paperwork. It’s been several days since the problem occurred and I still have not heard from my boss, so I think it is safe to say that nothing is going to happen.

The wait staff was a lot nicer than the manager

I insisted that my wife and I go to a brand new restaurant that the newspaper raved about.

My wife didn’t want to go to the restaurant, and she would have rather if we waited a few weeks until it wasn’t busy.

She has a lot of social anxiety and really does not prefer social situations. I talked her into making a change that night and we went to the restaurant a few days after it opened. It wasn’t impressive and the next time that my wife doesn’t want to go somewhere, I am going to listen to her instincts and intuition. The food wasn’t very good, but the biggest problem was actually the indoor air temperatures. Even though the manager said that the air conditioner was running, it absolutely did not feel like there was any cold air coming out of the vents. Even when I went to the restroom, I still didn’t feel any cold air coming from the air conditioner vents. It seemed peculiar that the air conditioner was working perfectly when there was no cold air anywhere in the restaurant. My wife and I spoke with the manager about the problem with the air conditioner and she was very rude and hurt. The wait staff was a lot nicer than the manager. They comped a bottle of wine for my wife and I and gave us desserts to take home that were also free of charge. I doubt my wife and I will ever return to that restaurant again, especially after the terrible experience we had the first time.

The new heater will absolutely help the indoor air temperatures

My wife and I certainly didn’t think that we would ever receive a stimulus from the government.

Even though it was discussed on several occasions, we never thought a check would arrive in the mail.

When we received the large stimulus, we wanted to put the money to good use. The two of us thought of many different ways to use the money and we ended up purchasing a brand new heater for the house. The indoor air temperatures are very cold during the winter and a lot of that reason is due to the age of the heater. The heater was installed in the house years before we bought the place. We have been living here for almost a decade. My wife and I called several different heating companies and talked with the experts about our options. We decided to buy a brand new gas furnace with a 99% AFUE rating. Ninety-nine percent of the energy used by the machine is directly related to creating heat. The gas furnace with a 99% a few rating is one of the best machines that you can buy. My wife and I never would have been able to afford such an extravagant expense, but the extra money from the government made it possible to buy an energy-efficient heating machine that will last a decade or longer. The second stimulus checks were a lot harder to spend, because we really wanted to take a vacation or buy a boat with the money. Of course, we decided to save it for a rainy day instead.

The new air filters work much better than the old junk

My wife and I decided to buy some brand new air filters for our heating and air conditioning machine.

The air filter is one of the most important parts of the heating and air conditioning machine, because it has the responsibility of removing all of the harmful pollutants from the end or atmosphere.

An air filter is made to remove harmful particles, dirt, debris, dust, and allergens. Better air filters trap more harmful particles. My wife and I upgraded 2 new air filters last month, because we got a second dog in the house. After having a second dog, both of us noticed a distinct and odd odor in the house. We decided to buy an air filter that is specifically made for homes with multiple pets. The air filter has a charcoal lining that helps absorb and eliminate foul odors. Since we started using the air filter, the indoor air quality is much fresher and cleaner. I think the new air filters also trap more particles, because there is less dust on all of the surfaces in the house. Since the new air filters are a bit more costly than an ordinary air filter, my wife and I purchased several extra air filters from an online retailer. They were $15 each at the hardware store and $13 each at the Supercenter. We purchased an entire box with 6 new charcoal fiber air filters, and we only spent $10 for each of the air filters. We also paid no money for the shipping costs. They gave us a great deal online.

It was hard to be the only female employee for the last year

A year ago, I was hired by a nationally known heating company to consult on boiler repairs.

I had lots of letters of recommendation and the job was a pretty nice position with benefits, salary, and a 401K.

Unfortunately, I was the only female employee in the entire building until last month. It was difficult being the only woman especially in a male dominated field like HVAC repair services. I was uncomfortable in the beginning and a little worried about my position. Luckily, I work with a great group of guys and they gave me a lot of respect. I was anxious to hire another woman to work on the boiler repair crew, and I have been sifting through lots of different candidates looking for the right person to hire. I finally found someone that will fit into our group and she comes with a great deal of excellent recommendations as well. I am excited to see how she will work out. She starts next week and she is going to train with me for a few days so I can show her the ropes and introduce her to our crew and our clients. If she is as skilled as her resume would suggest, she will be out in the field working alone in no time at all. That will free me up to go back to doing what I do best. That is advertising and sales. I have grown the company by 30% since I was hired a year ago. I don’t get a lot of respect from the men, but the female business owners love working with me.

I left my phone sitting by the furnace

I was working on a furnace repair this morning, and I left my phone at the customer’s house.

I know the phone was sitting by the furnace, because that is the last place that I remember having it.

When I got back to the office, I called the customer and left a message on her voicemail. She did not return my call. A few hours later, I called a second time. I left an additional voicemail and urged the customer to return my call. I didn’t hear anything and at the end of the day I decided to drive back to the house. I knocked on the door and the customer answered. She looked very surprised to see me, despite the fact that I had made several calls throughout the day. I told the customer that I left my phone sitting by the furnace. She argued with me that the phone could not be in the garage, because she did not hear it ring at all during the day. I asked a customer if I could check for my phone, and she hesitated but said yes. I didn’t see the phone sitting where I left it earlier that day and I was starting to feel hopeless. I decided to call the phone one last time, just in case it was still inside of the area where the furnace was located. I heard the faint ringing of my ringtone, but the sound wasn’t coming from the garage. I walked into the house and the phone was sitting on a shelf in the kitchen. I grabbed the phone and told the customer that it belongs to me. She didn’t say anything as I walked out of the house.

I knew the kid was going to be successful

I would have loved to keep the kid 10 years ago, but there was no way I had time to teach

I hired a brand new HVAC technician about three weeks after he received his certification. I really needed someone experienced and ready to hit the ground running, but I hired the guy because he showed promise and he had a great personality. I knew the kid was going to be successful. Business was extremely busy at the time when I hired the HVAC technician. The new guy couldn’t keep up and he was constantly having problems. After three months, I felt it was better if he moved to a different company. I hated to let the kid go, but I needed someone with more experience. 3 weeks ago, I went to a business seminar and I ran into the guy. He was ten years older, but I recognized his face immediately. He was still working in the HV AC repair & installation industry, which made me happy. We decided to have a beer at the pub after class and the two of us discussed the last few years. The kid has been working for the same company since he left my business and now he is in charge of the heat pump repairs and installations. He has a crew of workers that report directly to him. I have to say that I was very impressed by his resume, but not surprised. I would have loved to keep the kid 10 years ago, but there was no way I had time to teach. I’m so happy he found somewhere to land that was a huge success. The kid reminded me a lot of myself at that age.

I didn't agree with the first opinion so I called someone else

I heard a strange sound coming from the furnace, so I decided to contact a repair service.

It was already late in the season and the repair service prices were through the roof.

I spoke with the owner of the furnace repair company and he agreed to come to the house and evaluate the problems with the furnace. The repair technician that came to the house actually spent about 15 minutes looking at the furnace and then he told me that the machine needed to be replaced. I was a little upset that the technician didn’t take a longer amount of time to evaluate the system and I was very worried that he wanted me to spend more money than necessary. I paid a $99 fee for the estimate, because I did not have the company replace the furnace. Instead, I decided to call another company for a second opinion. I didn’t agree with the first opinion, so I called someone else. I called another company that handles the same type of repairs and I told them that I was hoping to get a second opinion. They agreed to give me another opinion at no cost. The technician from the second company spent about 30 minutes looking at the furnace and he had the exact same opinion. I guess the first technician knew exactly what he was talking about, but it still didn’t hurt to get a second opinion and another estimate for the thermos replacement costs. It’s hard to trust an expert, especially when the news is bad and the estimate is high.

It would have taken 2 extra days for the bigger AC

When my wife and I decided to buy a new AC unit for the living room, we took our time with the decision. We knew it was going to be an expensive purchase and we absolutely wanted an AC unit that would last another 10 years. My wife and I knew we would only be living in the house for another 10 years and after that it would be the responsibility of the new homeowner to buy another AC unit or install central AC. Either way, it wasn’t going to be my responsibility after my wife and I retired. When we finally decided on the make and model of the AC unit that we chose, we found out that it was going to take two extra days. My wife and I waited a long time to make our decision and we were ready to buy the AC unit. Another model was available at that time and it was ready to ship. It was only a 12,000 BTU AC unit instead of an 18,000 BTU AC. It was on sale and the shipping was free and next day delivery was included. My wife and I decided to change our mind and get a smaller machine. That was a really big mistake, and I am kicking myself everyday. It only would have taken two extra days for the bigger AC unit, and we spent a long time making our decision. We should have waited the extra days instead of being impatient for the shipping. The 18,000 BTU unit would have been much nicer and cooled the house much better than the one that we purchased.
