We commonly have a bunch of people over to our place during the winter season holidays.
Well, this year I realized that we couldn’t follow our regular tradition.
I had to call up everybody because of the bad news. Basically, we were having serious complications with our heating system. It was my fault I realized because I decided to skip on the furnace tune-up and now it was having all sorts of trouble just heating the household. It wasn’t dead altogether, but there was no way we would be able to entertain guests and keep them comfortable in our household. Even when I called up the HVAC company, they said it would be days before they could get to our property, unless we wanted to opt for emergency HVAC services. When I learned it would be roughly triple the cost for emergency HVAC services, I told them I would wait for a few days to have an HVAC worker over to our household. Even if the heating system was repaired on time, I didn’t want to take the chance. With my luck and the way things were going, something would still go wrong with the heating system after it was officially repaired and I would have a bunch of angry guests during the holiday celebration. I know everybody was upset to hear about how they would have to change their plans, but there’s always next year. It’s not like it’s the end of the world, but I’m sure everybody would have been a lot happier if we just stuck with the regular season tradition and had a wonderful get together.
