In my profession, I see a lot of children. When parents call for a heating or air-conditioning repair, the kids are usually home. I’m not sure why that seems to be true, but I usually see small children more often than not. As a heating and air conditioning professional, I do my best to work in the worst situations. Sometimes those situations can be very annoying. Last weekend, I was working as the on-call technician. We don’t work every weekend, but a heating and air conditioning professional must be available at all times. We will service any heating or air conditioning problem, anytime of day or night. We do charge extra for the emergency service, but we are the only heating and air conditioning company in the area to offer around-the-clock services. Last weekend, I was sent to an emergency call, when someone had a problem with the furnace. It was almost midnight when the customer called, and nearly one by the time I arrived. The person answered the door with a three-year-old on her hip. She pointed me in the direction of the furnace, and started yelling at two other kids. After a few minutes, I had the furnace in pieces. I was searching for the problem, when I looked down and saw a three-year-old playing in my furnace parts. I didn’t see the customer anywhere, but I couldn’t continue the job. I walked the three-year-old into the living room, where I found her mom passed out on the couch. The other two kids were playing video games in the living room, and there was no other adult in the house.
