Then the furnace repairman arrived and told me he didn’t think he had the proper fuse but would check in his truck. Meanwhile, the plumber cut holes in my bathroom wall to locate the leak.
When the furnace repairman returned, he held aloft a fuse. “I had the right one after all,” he said triumphantly. “This must be your lucky day.”
