Duke had been away from home longer than she intended.
- But, the whole matter was out of her hands.
She had left the country a month before the lockdown. And only managed to get back home 6 months later. Thankfully, she had the best boss who ensured she had everything she needed. She even got to turn her whole job into a remote position. The hour she landed back, she wanted to kiss the ground because she had missed home so much. She went straight home from the airport, turned on the circuit breaker, & went to turn on the AC. It was so warm outside, & she wanted the cooling unit to circulate air in her home. But, the A/C wasn’t responding no matter how many times she tried to turn it on. She knew this was entirely because she had missed the annual Heating & Air Conditioning service, which she had in the books with an area A/C business, but duke wasted no time calling them since she didn’t have any other way to keep the house cool. The A/C company sent over an A/C expert that day to inspect & fix the issue. It turns out the outdoor Heating & Air Conditioning was the cause of the faulty A/C unit not working. It had so much dust & debris that had blown into it while in those many months she was away. This was impeding airflow into the cooling unit. The A/C expert had to open it up, clean it, & fix a few parts before putting it back together. Duke was cheerful with the speedy repair, & in no time, she was enjoying the cool air from her Heating & Air Conditioning unit.
