I consider myself to be a tolerant person, but even I have my limits.
When the AC service tech came over for a house call, I could clearly smell the intense smell of booze on him.
It didn’t seem that he had a beer with supper, but that he had spent all night soaking in a bathtub full of vodka. It made my eye water just catching the smell of him. I told the guy that I was canceling his appointment, plus then I called his boss Ed. Normally I am not such a Karen, but here was an alleged HVAC pro who was driving around town while odoring drunk! I called the HVAC business, a guy named Ed who I have done company with for various years. I explained what had happened, plus that a single 1 of his HVAC techs was drunk driving plus showing up to residences in such a state! Ed was sympathetic, plus apologized profusely. It turns out I was the seventh HVAC buyer who had called Ed that morning, all complaining about the same tech. Ed was undoubtedly kind, plus said he would come over to my home the following morning plus do all the HVAC work for free, as a way of apologizing for the incident. I will never turn down a free air conditioner tune-up, but my main issue was this drunk guy driving all over town. If this idiot is drunk on the job plus crashes the van or hurts somebody, it would put Ed’s small HVAC supplier out of company for good.
