Not too long ago now, I had to have our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment entirely repaired. I must clarify that it wasn’t mine per se because I rented the property, but the proprietor was doing routine service on all of the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment for all the apartments on the grounds. The guy handling the work on the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment was the service guy, Tony, that worked for the apartment complex. I had met him before when I had a minor repair that I needed to have taken care of. I knew he was a pretty big talker. I am a “keep to myself” type of person, so the talkers don’t really vibe all that well with me. I find it sort of awkward to be frank. When Tony arrived that afternoon to look at the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment in our apartment, as soon as I opened the door, he started to tell me a story about his afternoon. I knew he meant to be just friendly, so I didn’t interrupt him in the least. I just let him go on as he looked over our Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment. There was a minor repair that needed to be taken care of pronto, however nothing too pressing. He had the needed part on him. I was ecstatic for that bit of luck. I didn’t want a repeat performance of his boring storytelling the next afternoon, and one second with Tony was enough to tire me out for a whole week. He was consistently good at his task, though, plus he was a fairly nice guy. I never told him how much his carrying on was annoying to me, nor did he seem to even pick up on it. Maybe it was a true testament to how absorbed he was with his work that he didn’t notice whenever I would be bothered as his voice got so loud it bordered on painful. His eyes were seriously only for the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment. That was the pleasant thing about Tony. He did his task plus got out of there in a fair amount of time. I appreciated that as well as his handy work, and especially on that occasion, as it was Winter, plus I couldn’t bear to be separate from a working gas furnace.
