Dan and I were supposed to go out of town for a romantic weekend getaway.
We have been dating for six months and both of us were ready to get out of town for one night away.
Dan planned a romantic weekend away from his apartment and his three roommates. He got a room for us at a fancy hotel by the river. Unfortunately, Dan had to cancel our romantic weekend date because he was forced to work on an emergency boiler repair. Dan is one of a handful of guys at his job that can handle boiler repairs and Welding issues. Dan makes excellent money at his job because he is certified to weld and work on boiler repairs. Sometimes that means that Dan is the only guy that can complete a job. Two days before our romantic weekend getaway, a business downtown called the heating and air conditioning service company where Dan works. They had some trouble with a boiler and they needed someone immediately. Dan went to service the boiler and he found out that the equipment needed to be replaced. Dan had to wait for the new boiler to arrive two days later, before he could install the new parts. The company did not want to wait until Dan came back from a weekend away, because they had to pay for a boiler rental the whole time that the main boiler was out of commission. Dan didn’t want to cancel our weekend, but he really didn’t have any choice. Thank goodness he made it up to me the following Saturday and Sunday.
