I was so hungry by the time my husband got home from work. We’d both been so busy that we forgot all about grocery shopping. The kids were away in summer camp, so it was just the two of us. I’d called my husband and asked him to come with some food. Instead, he insisted we go out, have a meal and go dancing. That was music to my ears since I needed to let loose for the night. He got home, showered, changed, and then we went to a new restaurant in the city. The restaurant was in a great spot, but I noticed it had a faulty HVAC when we stepped inside. It had a musty atmosphere due to the heat and humidity common in the summer months. I wasn’t sure about staying in a restaurant with an HVAC system that wasn’t working. My husband decided to ask the waiter why the AC unit was blowing less cold air. The waiter informed us that the HVAC unit had started acting up that afternoon, and the AC technician was on their way. He then proceeded to take our order and thanked us for being patient. Lack of proper air ventilation was evident all around. Though the restaurant had an excellent reputation online, they’d failed to mention the HVAC system was faulty. Patrons were doing their best not to complain about the poor indoor air quality, but it became unbearable. I couldn’t take it anymore, so we canceled our order and went in search of a restaurant with better air conditioning. I felt such relief when we got in the car, and my husband turned on the car AC system. Thankfully my husband had taken the car to the HVAC mechanic in spring for servicing, and he managed to fix a few minor issues. The car aircon was splendid and immediately cooled the car interior as we searched for a new place to have dinner.
