I am the kind of person that really likes to be social.
I hate whenever there are people near me who are being completely silent.
That awkward lack of conversation can drive me insane! I will literally talk with anyone that I have the opportunity to talk to. Just the other day, I got a chance to talk to my local HVAC technician. My air conditioner stopped working randomly in the middle of the day, so I called the same HVAC company that I have always called. This time, they sent out an old HVAC technician who had been working with the company for many years. When he showed up, he began quietly working on my air conditioner to try to figure out what was wrong with it. I watched him work silently for a while, but then I couldn’t take it. I started trying to get to know the HVAC technician. It turns out that this HVAC technician was a pretty cool guy. He had grown up on the other side of the country, and as soon as he turned 18, he started training to become an HVAC technician. However, when the company closed, he moved to our area because he had some family here. The HVAC technician then began telling me about all of the interesting things he has seen since he started working as an HVAC technician. He has seen air conditioners that stopped working because of giant rats chewing the cords. He has seen furnaces start working when there was no way that they should have been. He has watched new HVAC workers drop expensive furnaces before getting fired instantly. I listened to this HVAC technician talk for hours before he finally fixed my air conditioner.
