When the heating, refrigeration and air conditioner repair technician knocked on the door, I never expected it to be my sister.
My sister and I haven’t spoken for several years. We had a fight before she moved out of town and we never had time to resolve the issues. I stayed in our hometown and she went to the technical school to learn heating, refrigeration, and air conditioner repair. My mom told me when my sister graduated and she informed me when my sister got a job working for a commercial heating, refrigeration, and air conditioner repair service. I was extremely proud of my sister, but my own pride kept me from calling and telling her that. It’s been 5 years since I talked to my sister, but my mom arranged a meeting. I sure was back in town and I found out the hard way. My mom told me that she had a tune-up performed on the heating and air conditioning system and the new service was exceptional and very cheap. I decided to call the heating and air conditioning repair service to schedule a tune-up as well. When the heating, refrigeration and air conditioner repair technician knocked on the door, I never expected it to be my sister. She was just as surprised as me. She did not know where I was living or my address, and it was clear that the entire meeting was set up by my mother. My sister and I talked for a couple of minutes while she was working on the tune up, but it was certainly an awkward exchange. I hope we will have a chance to mend fences, but the repair appointment wasn’t the time or place to hash out the past.
