I knew that I wouldn’t be able to fix the furnace myself, so we tried to survive without it
On media and movies from generations past, you often find that there seems to be a common trend when it comes to Thanksgiving dinners being ruined. Typically, you see all of the family members gathered together for a meal that is supposed to make you thankful for each other and for what the year has brought. Instead, you find that your family members are tearing at each other’s throats over something dumb like politics. I usually have good Thanksgiving dinners at my home, but this year, our HVAC unit ruined our Thanksgiving. Everything was going well with our Thanksgiving. The furnace was warm, the conversations were pleasant, and the food was delicious. However, halfway through the meal, we began to notice that the room was noticeably colder. My first instinct was to check the thermostat. I figured that since the ovens were on before, it was likely that we might not have realized that the thermostat was on a lower setting. However, further, inspection showed that the thermostat was correct. We immediately realized that the furnace broke. We tried calling an HVAC technician, but apparently, they closed their offices on Thanksgiving. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to fix the furnace myself, so we tried to survive without it. However, we were all cold, and we began bickering because of our discomfort. The lack of the furnace ruined our Thanksgiving this year, and now we have joined the list of people who dread Thanksgiving. Hopefully, our furnace should work next year, and we will have a better holiday next time.
