I had to ask the HVAC technician to forgive me

Today, I had to learn how to be humble and ask the HVAC technician to forgive me.

I usually am not that sharp with other people, especially someone who is trying to help me like an HVAC technician, but the stress of today overwhelmed me, and I lost it.

It started when I woke up in the middle of the night. I was in bed when I realized that the furnace was not working. It was getting cold in my house without the furnace, and I realized that my children would be whining the entire morning trying to get ready for school in the cold. I know a few basic things about furnaces, so I tried to get my furnace working in the middle of the night, but I didn’t have any luck. Since my wife had work that day, I had to stay home and wait for the HVAC technician to come. I called the HVAC company, and they scheduled a time for the HVAC technician to come and fix my furnace. He promised that he would be there by a certain time, and he was 1 minute late, which shouldn’t have been a big deal. However, I was growing frustrated about my furnace, and I was sharp with him when he came in. When he confronted me about the problem with the furnace, I grew angry, realizing that it was going to cost a lot of money to fix my furnace. I yelled at him and stormed away as he drove to the store. When he came back to fix my furnace, I felt terrible. It wasn’t his fault that my furnace was broken. Sure, I could have dropped it, but I decided to apologize. I am thankful that he was understanding.
