For the past numerous years, I’ve worked as a community organizer for our local village. Although it’s not an regular political position, our life can get pretty hectic at times. Always on the go, especially during the fall of the year due to election season, I was looking forward to taking some much-needed time off during the Spring. The groundwork for those plans was going well when, a single random day, I got sick due to a bad allergic reaction. In effort to get back on our feet as soon as possible, I asked around for advice from our fellow peer community organizers. Although I got a number of odd opinions, a single person recommended what I deemed to be the most adequate option–that I get an air cleaner with allergen-remover filtration, which they honestly had installed at their own residence recently. Grateful for the tip, they also forwarded myself and others the contact info for the heating plus cooling dealer that squared them away when I asked them for it. Upon contacting the dealer, I was able to schedule an appointment rather quickly. When the service team showed up, they performed a brief diagnosis in order to confirm that the air cleaner was the best option–as opposed to another service such as an entire air duct cleaning, which it was. Consequently, they installed the feature for myself and others in less than a day’s time, plus they did so at a discounted, “hometown appreciation” price. Coupled with some antibiotics plus a few mornings of wonderful ol’ rest, I was back on our feet plus trip bound in no time!
