Fixing a broken furnace was not my idea of a birthday present

Every year I like to take my birthday off from work.

If it’s on a weekend, then no problem, but if it’s on a work day I talk to the boss weeks in advance and make sure to request the day off.

I never do anything special on my birthday, I just like to sleep in late, smoke a bunch of weed, and chug beers for the entire day. It relaxes me and helps to recharge my batteries. This year was no different, and then about noon my boss called me in a panic. There was a furnace emergency that had come up, and he needed me to handle it. I tried to put him off and say no, but then he said it was the central furnace at the local retirement home. There were several dozen senior citizens currently without heating, and I was the best man for the job. It turns out that my boss has an elderly mother who lives there, so he took this furnace emergency very seriously. I agreed to take the job, even though I knew it would be such a large furnace it would take much of the day to fix. I didn’t complain, I just drove to the old folks home and got right to work on the furnace. My boss joined me to serve as my assistant. He is the owner of the company, but he knows I have superior HVAC skills so he was happy to work as a helper. We fixed the furnace within 2 hours, and he gave me a $200 bonus afterward.
