When I was in my early 20s I would often house sit for a wealthy couple that lived a few miles away. They just needed someone to look after their house while they were away on vacation. It was a great job! They had a big, ornate, and comfortable house and it was great to to have the whole place to myself. I remember one instance that I was house sitting and the air conditioning system shut down. It was a hot Summer and the A/C was essential every day and it ran all the time. I was not sure what to do. I had the number of the home owners, so after a day of trying to cope with the Summer heat, I decided to call them and ask what I should do. They told me that they would call their local HVAC service business and have them come out and look into the issue. The next day a service truck pulled into the driveway and I was only too happy to see it. After only about an hour the serviceman said he had found the complication and had repaired it. I could already feel the house cooling down as cool air was flowing from all the ductworks. I asked him if I needed to compensate him and he said no, that the owners of the home had taken care of everything. I hated to have to bother them while they were on a getaway, but I was so ecstatic to be comfortable for the rest of my house sitting job.
