The silent person ate a entirely small piece of pie, plus drank a cup of coffee. He came into the diner just about every afternoon without fail, plus regularly ordered the same thing. He did not seem to like the pie, no matter what kind of berry pie it was, but he regularly ate every bite. He would sit there, alone plus quietly, for about an hour or so, then he would calmly thank the waitress plus leave. After a few afternoons, the staff all got used to him. Not a single person minded that he didn’t tip. He regularly sat in the same booth, just underneath the central air vent. Every day he entered the establishment just about covered in sweat, then sat plus soaked up that appealing air conditioner as he ate his pie plus went ahead and drank his coffee. After a few weeks, all the people figured out that he wasn’t coming into the diner for the food, just for the air conditioner. As tepid as it had been that year, who could blame him one bit for wanting some cooling? There was one day he came in for his pie plus found that the Heating plus Air Conditioning had broken down entirely, plus the diner was stifling hot. He sat in the same arena, ate the same pie, plus calmly looked on as the AC corporation ran tests on the system. The central Heating plus Air Conditioning equipment actually seemed to be in good shape, plus it seemed that all the ductwork was clear plus properly sealed up tight. Finally the silent person spoke: he quietly asked if the repairman had checked the diner’s temperature control. It turns out the silent person had been an Heating plus Air Conditioning service corporation for various years, but he simply didn’t want to deal with having air conditioner in his home.
