They hope that their friend will manage to come and hang out in the loft until they get back home
They’re getting their local Heating, Ventilation, and A/C worker over to the loft tomorrow to get the heating method fixed. Dad and mom just found out that they’re not gonna be able to be there when the worker arrives. Normally, they wouldn’t mind leaving a trusted Heating, Ventilation, and A/C worker at the loft when they’re not there, but cases of theft are on the rise around their city recently and mom and dad are on edge about that kind of thing right now. They aren’t sure if it’s the holidays or what, but it seems like everybody is getting robbed around there. Anyway, dad and mom just found out that they’re going to have to leave the loft while they are there, and now they do not know what to do. They loathe having to reschedule their heating maintenance appointment because they have been waiting on it for quite some time. Maybe they will just go ahead and leave them in the loft and ask a trusted friend to come over and hang out while they’re. Dad and mom know it absolutely sounds like they’re being paranoid, but that’s just the way that they are right now. They have already bought all of their Christmas presents, and they do not want anyone to steal them just because they give them easy access to the loft to fix their gas furnace. They hope that their friend will manage to come and hang out in the loft until they get back home. They do not know how long it takes to maintain a gas furnace, but they will absolutely still be in the loft when they get back.
