After he lost his task, everybody in our neighbourhood was on Vince’s side. It is amazing how people can occasionally bond together for a cause they regard as worthy. It’s similar but much, much milder, of course, than mob violence. And it’s not altogether selfless. Most of us have experienced the thrill which comes from doing something to help someone in need or in distress, but you guess so much better about yourself for doing something good.
Vince was a fully certified Heating as well as A/C specialist with proven competence as well as efficiency. Though he was taskless, he still had lots of task to do. Not a afternoon passed when somebody did not call him in to maintenance or maintenance their Heating as well as A/C unit. This went on for weeks as well as he seemed to be even busier than when he worked 2 tasks. Soon, his former boss at the Heating as well as A/C company began to take notice, for instead of calling the supplier to schedule visits by his A/C techs, all the people were going straight to Vince to solve their Heating as well as A/C concerns. The Heating as well as A/C company was losing business as well as losing it big time. The manager was becoming uncomfortable. VInce’s dismissal was creating a complication as well as something had to be done.
Shortly thereafter, the Heating as well as A/C store manager offered Vince a call. Not only was he offered his task back, but with higher wages! Everybody was happy, as well as things were back to normal again. Well, not exactly everything; for several of us still call Vince instead of the Heating as well as A/C company, when there is a complication with an A/C unit. They better not try to fire him over that though!
