I work for a heating and AC repair company and we service a huge number of community residents and businesses.
When I first interviewed for the job, one of the points that the owner stressed was not to date any of the customers.
The guy talked about dating the customers for 5 minutes during the interview, so I assumed someone already made that mistake once before. I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal, because I was there to work on heating and AC repairs. All of that changed six months ago, when I went to investigate a problem with a refrigeration unit at the diner. That’s where I met Sally. Sally was a waitress at the diner and the manager of the day shift. She was the person that I talked with about the heating and AC problem. I spent two hours with her on the day that I repaired the refrigeration unit. She was fun, smart, and she had a great laugh. When she gave me her phone number and asked me to call her later that day, I had every intention of setting up a date. I knew my boss wouldn’t be happy about it, but I was hoping he wouldn’t find out. I was busy that afternoon with another air conditioner repair and I never got a chance to call Sally. The next morning when I got to work, I had seven messages from the heating and AC repair service dispatch center. All seven of those messages came from Sally. Some of them were really scary and I immediately thought the girl might be a stalker. I had to break down and tell my boss about the crazy lady.
