I didn’t know they broke the air conditioning in the restaurant.

I took a couple of days off from managing the restaurant.

Normally, I work seven days a week from open to close, because I own the restaurant.

My wife had been asking me to take some time off so we could go away for our anniversary, and I complied. When we got back the following Tuesday, I had to go to the restaurant. I open the doors in a blast of heat hit me in the face, And I knew there was a problem with the air conditioning. The first thing I did was call the HVAC company. I then called my restaurant manager to see if he knew there was a problem? He told me he was about three blocks away from the restaurant, and he would stop and talk to me. When he got there, he told me the air conditioning unit had been broken for three days. This meant the air conditioner broke the day after my wife and I left to go on vacation, and no one had notified me. He said he knew he had it on the list to call me, but as hectic as the restaurant had been, he must’ve forgotten. How could anyone have a restaurant full of customers and forget that there is no air conditioning? I made a mental note that was mentioned out loud, that maybe I should not just call the HVAC company, but that I should start looking for a new restaurant manager. He was not happy with the comment I made, but he understood. He headed back inside to call the HVAC company and told them they were already on the way. We were lucky we didn’t lose our business or product because of a lack of air conditioning.
