My father ran the local HVAC company.
He was an excellent HVAC technician, but he was never serious.
It seemed that he enjoyed making people laugh and smile, as much as he enjoyed being an HVAC technician. A couple of weeks ago, he came home and he was telling us a story about one of his HVAC technicians. He said they had gone to a new customer who lived in the local haunted house. Since Halloween was rapidly approaching, some of the guys were telling him about the haunted house. They said none of them would go there, but since he was the new guy, he didn’t have a choice. The poor kid was so worried that he was shaking when he got out of the service van. A beautiful young woman came to the door and introduced herself, which put the you HVAC service tech at ease, but then he looked inside. She was heading for the basement, when a bat flew out and landed on the curtain behind him. He screeched when the bat came toward him, but he continued following her down the stairs. When he got to the bottom of the stairs, there was an old coffin propped up against the wall, and several smaller coffins lined up against another wall. She showed him where the furnace was and pulled the cobwebs away as they walked. No one told him it was the house they used for their Halloween party every year and it actually belonged to one of their HVAC technicians. He housed all the decorations for the local Halloween party in his basement.
