My sister called, and she was in a panic.
My brother-in-law was trying to repair the air conditioning unit.
I knew nothing about air conditioning, and I tried to tell her that. She said that I was an electrician and I could at least turn off the power before he electrocuted himself. I had to laugh when I got to the house. There he was, standing by the air conditioning unit. My sister was holding an umbrella to keep him from getting rained on. I was wondering what she was going to do to keep him from getting hit by lightning. I figured it had to be hot and humid inside if they didn’t have air conditioning. I pulled up into the driveway and walked over to them. I asked if they had turned off the power. She shook her head, so I went inside and turned off the power. I figured they didn’t have air conditioning so an hour without electricity wouldn’t bother them. I went back outside and asked if he had called the HVAC company. He told me that it was just an air conditioner and anyone can fix it. He looked at me and asked what I knew about air conditioning. I told him the same thing I told my sister. I know nothing about air conditioning. He took a deep breath and waved me over. He asked me to call the HVAC company, but please it sound like I forced him to call. Apparently he was trying to save face with my sister since he assured her he knew what he was doing..
