I had a husband who was always talking to himself.
There were times when I heard him have a complete conversation about nothing and arguing over who was right and who was wrong.
I wondered if it really mattered since he was the only one arguing. When I called the HVAC company, I was thinking the HVAC technician was odd. He showed up right on time, which in itself is an oddity. He went right to work, but I heard him talking outside. I didn’t know what he was talking about or to whom, but he seemed to be upset about something. I stood by the window listening for almost ten minutes. I was finding it fascinating that more men than my husband would talk to themselves when working. I stood there for one more minute before I realized he had earphones in his ears. The HVAC technician wasn’t arguing with himself, but he was having a conversation with someone else. I knew they were talking about air conditioning units, and I wondered if they were discussing mine. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with the air conditioning unit. I just wanted to have it cleaned and serviced before summer arrived. When he came into the house, he told me the air conditioning was in fine condition and there was no charge because of my maintenance plan. I looked at him and asked why he was saying there was a problem. He laughed and said he was talking about his van’s HVAC system. That is the last time I ever eavesdropped on someone’s telephone calls.
