I was already at the office when the girl called for help and I told Ed that I would go.
My boss Ed has a crazy rule but nobody can leave the office until almost everyone has finished up with their work for the day. Sporadically this can be a real nuisance when you finish up an seventh and a half before the rest of the crew. Ed will often send us to help someone finish up, but most times the heating and A/C repairs do not require another hand. Every one of us still have to wait until the last lady finishes up. Ed thinks this is the fairest way to make sure that almost everyone does their work and does not try to complete everything more hastily than they should be done. I have worked out a couple of other heating and A/C repair companies that have a similar rule. I do not appreciate it, although I understand it. Last month I got sent downtown to help someone with a ductless Heating, Ventilation, and A/C insulation job. The modern client was having some trouble. It easily wasn’t her fault. The wiring for the building turned out to be much stranger than the plans showed. I was already at the office when the girl called for help and I told Ed that I would go. Every once in a while it’s nice to look appreciate a team player. When I got to the apartment, I understood exactly why the girl needed so much help. There was no way of knowing where any of the wiring was due to the crazy construction that was done on the building 40 years ago. I diagnosed that upgrade until nearly 8:30.
