I am proud to call myself a foodie. There are few people who are as passionate about food as I am. When I eat a meal that I enjoy, I remember it for years.
I truly enjoy eating out at restaurants. In fact, I enjoy it so much that I do a great deal of planning. I read reviews and look at pictures of dishes. Then, I decide which restaurant is worth visiting.
When I went out to eat a few weeks ago, I was sorely disappointed. However, it wasn’t the food that disappointed me. It was the temperature. The restaurant was too hot, and it ruined my whole night.
When we got to the restaurant, I noticed that there didn’t seem to be an HVAC system. The air was muggy and hot. It didn’t help that there were many people crowded into the small dining area. As we sat down at our table, I tried to ignore the fact that there was no cooling. I didn’t need an air conditioner to enjoy my meal, did I?
Unfortunately, the lack of air conditioning ruined my night. For one, the heat made me lose my appetite. With no working HVAC system, I just wasn’t hungry.
My salad arrived first. Although it looked great on the menu, it wasn’t the same in-person. There was no air conditioner to keep the food cold, and the greens wilted. The rest of the meal was equally disappointing.
Later on, I found out that the restaurant was in need of air conditioner repair. Had they called an HVAC technician soon enough, they wouldn’t have had a problem.
