I stayed with Carol for two nights and on the third day, the heating company called to tell me that they finally had the furnace in stock.
Lucky for me, I have a lot of friends that live close by. A few days ago, I found out that my furnace needed to be replaced. It’s an older furnace, but I was still surprised by the news. They didn’t have my particular model in stock, so the heating company had to order the right equipment. In the meantime, I didn’t have any heat in the house. I had a small space heater to set up in the bedroom, but the living room, kitchen, and dining room we’re still frigid and chilly. I decided to stay with a friend for those few nights. She lives very close to my home. We have been friends for a few years. We went out on a few dates, but we didn’t have a romantic connection. We have remained friends since that time. I called Carol and told her the bad news about my furnace. She immediately offered to let me stay with her until the new furnace could be installed. I didn’t call Carol for an invite, but I quickly agreed to the auction. I stayed with Carol for two nights and on the third day, the heating company called to tell me that they finally had the furnace in stock. I met the HVAC technician in the driveway to my home. Two guys spent most of the morning installing the new equipment, but the heat is working better than I can ever remember. I’m really thankful that Carol let me stay at her place for a few days. It would have been difficult to stay at my place with no heat and still go to work every day.
