I consider this an emergency

The other day, I woke up in the middle of the night because it was incredibly hot inside. I ran to the thermostat to find that the A/C was not working and the thermostat read 85 degrees! It was way too sizzling in my house and I knew that I couldn’t call an HVAC company unless I wanted to pay a small fortune for emergency repairs! I decided to call my brother up who happened to be an HVAC technician. He was complaining about me calling him at such an hour but then he heard me out on what was going on. He agreed to come over right away with his tools. He lives right around the corner from me so it didn’t take him very long to arrive to my house. It was about 3am and he had everything up and running again in the hour. I was amazed at his work but when that cooling air was flowing again in my house, I was so relieved. I thanked my brother much for his work and he told me I owed him big time for waking him up in the middle night. I told him I would take him out to dinner sometime and I would make sure to bring him some beer a little later in the evening. He said that sounded great and it would be fun to go shoot some pool too. I agreed that I would cover the costs for everything and buy him drinks. We had such a great time that particular evening.
