I called the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C contractor to have my a/c equipment serviced.
When they called me back.
I was surprised to get an appointment so suddenly. Naturally, they reminded me I had a three-hour window for arrival of the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman, but I didn’t care. As long as he arrived the same day he was set to arrive, I would be glad. I had the entire day of labor off that day. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C service van pull into the driveway just five minutes after the busy time. I was utterly surprised to see a honestly pregnant guy get out of the van. She walked up to the door, which I had open before he got out of the service van. She walked up on the porch and showed me his Heating, Ventilation, and A/C ID badge. I invited his in and showed his into the backyard so he could look at the a/c unit. I was unsure if I should let his labor on the a/c unit. She was holding his back as he walked and would rub his stomach. I asked if he was okay and he said yup. This was his last Heating, Ventilation, and A/C job before he went on maternity leave. I remembered when I was pregnant and I could not imagine doing this job when I was so close to giving birth. I asked when his baby was due, and he told me in two weeks. If this Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman lasted another two weeks, I would be surprised. If he lasted the rest of his shift before going into full-blown labor, it would surprise me, but I hadn’t had a baby in almost fifty years.
