I had to drive all day to get home on time for our partner’s surprise party.
- My sibling had helped me organize it when I was away for a company trip.
I thought I’d be back a day before, but there was one last meeting to handle before I could leave. Luckily my sibling was a fantastic event organizer and had taken care of everything. The meeting took a long time and I got on the road much later than expected. It was hot outside, so I relied on the car A/C idea to keep me cool. The hotter it became, the higher I cranked up the heating and A/C temperature control to comfort the car interior. I guess I pushed the car a/c idea too far without intending to because it abruptly stopped working. At first, I wasn’t sure what had happened, despite the fact that I felt the car get hotter and hotter. That forced me to roll down the car windows to catch some breeze, but it was a hot day, so that didn’t work as I had thought it would. The only solution was to find a car A/C specialist to fix the issue for me. I pulled into a village and started to search for an A/C repair shop in the area. At one of the filling stations, I got the instruction to an HVAC servicing garage a few metres away. There was an A/C specialist at the shop working on another car! So I knew instantly I’d have to wait our turn to get the a/c fixed. After explaining the issue to the heating and A/C repair person, I got on the cellphone with our sibling. He promised me everything was taken care of to wait for the A/C repair a little longer. That was quite a relief because I didn’t want to drive all the way home without a functioning car A/C system.
