I got lucky, because the following weekend was extremely busy and I didn’t have to worry about any of those repair calls
During the summer months when the HVAC business is busiest, my co-workers and I have to take turns working on the weekends. The HVAC business does not offer regular services on the weekends, but we are available for emergencies. The customer has to pay a higher fee in order to have weekend emergency services. There was only one technician available on the weekend. My co-workers and I take turns. Each one of us is responsible for working one weekend during the month. On that weekend, I have to stay sober. I can’t go out and drink with my friends, because I have to be alert if the phone rings at midnight. I was on call last weekend and I thought it was going to be busy due to the extremely high temperatures. I didn’t go to the beach with my friends on Saturday, because I knew the phone was going to ring. Unfortunately for me, the phone did not ring and I did not have any emergency AC repairs at all on Saturday. The phone only rang one time on Sunday and it was a customer that wanted to make an appointment for Tuesday. The weekend was fairly quiet considering the fact that it was the summer and the temperatures were very warm. I got lucky, because the following weekend was extremely busy and I didn’t have to worry about any of those repair calls. My friend Jack, on the other hand, was busier than he has been in months. He had an emergency AC repair and two calls for ductwork cleaning.
