AC technician falls right into the pool

This week I had the HVAC technician over to install a new exhaust fan in the bathroom.

  • The exhaust fan has been broken for 6 months or more.

I can’t remember the last time that it worked properly. My wife and I rarely used the bathroom in the hallway, and we don’t often have any visitors. My parents decided to come for a visit next month and I knew it was important to fix the problems in the bathroom before they arrived. I called the HVAC company and they sent someone to fix the problem on Tuesday. The HVAC technician had to walk through the backyard to get to the part of our home where the bathroom is located. On the second trip back from the truck, the HVAC technician was carrying the exhaust fan. I wasn’t watching from the window, but I heard a large splash in the backyard. I turned around the corner and saw the guy trying to get out of the pool. The exhaust fan box was sitting in the water and the guy was soaked and wet. I ran outside with a towel. He looked embarrassed and I didn’t know what to say. I was trying not to laugh, but it was the funniest thing I have seen in a very long time. He dried off his pants and shirt and took off his socks and shoes. He finished installing the exhaust fan which was safely inside plastic. I couldn’t believe that he worked through the entire job. Thankfully, the outdoor weather was warm and sunny, and he appeared to be drying very quickly.
