My boyfriend and I met at the coffee shop when he mistakenly took my order.
He works as a senior a/c rep at a reputable company, while I am a financial analyst at a bank nearby.
The morning we met, he was on his way to the office building I work at. He and his team had been scheduled for a/c repairs at a business on the ground floor. Later that evening, we talked about the job, and he told me the dual fuel system he had gone to fix was in such a horrible state, and they ended up swapping it out for a new air conditioning system with higher SEER ratings. Though I did not know most of the terms, I let him speak about his day. The a/c installation had taken the entire morning, but he was content that the office had new quality HVAC equipment for extra home comfort. We continued talking for several weeks and went on dates before he officially asked me to be his girlfriend. On the first day at his house, I went for lunch. When we were done eating, we heard a hissing sound from his cooling product. He apologized profusely for forgetting to change the air conditioning filters. He had been swamped the previous weeks, having several a/c installs. This was an opportunity for me to learn what he did, so I requested he does the a/c care while I was there. I wanted to see him at his full a/c workman potential. He removed the washable filters, cleaned them, and replaced them, which improved the air purification. We chatted all through the process.
