My father was regularly the 1 who would come house with the wildest of stories.
He told us everything that happened at work, just to make us laugh.
He worked for the local Heating plus Air Conditioning business. One day he was telling how they sent out the beefiest Heating plus Air Conditioning tech they had, to work on a gas furnace. He called with the emergency number on our cell cellphones. He was having a rough time in the basement. When dad got there, he said he couldn’t help however start laughing so hard that he had tears rolling down his cheeks. The tech was stuck between the gas furnace and the wall and he couldn’t budge. Apparently his shirt had gotten fastened to a nail sticking out of the wall. This was our normal conversation during supper. Last week, he came house and asked if he had ever told us the story about the Heating plus Air Conditioning tech who regularly wore lipstick when fixing an AC unit? We all looked a bit skeptical. We had never heard of a person who wore lipstick and we couldn’t wait for the story. He said that every time they sent this specialist out to work on an air conditioning, they had lipstick on. He said the story spread hastily and everyone wanted to see the tech who wore lipstick. He said he was laughing, as regularly, because he knew who the tech was. When 5 Heating plus Air Conditioning techs got out of the service van to ‘help’ the tech, everyone blushed. The Heating plus Air Conditioning tech with lipstick, was the new female tech they had hired just a couple months earlier.
