I lost the best screwdriver in the whole set

When the customer was cleaning the area, she noticed the screwdriver and knew immediately that it was my lost item

I started working as an HVAC repair person about six months ago. I didn’t realize it would be so expensive to buy all of the tools that I need to complete the job properly. I was very happy when my mom and dad bought me a really nice screwdriver set for Christmas. The screwdrivers are made for working with electricity and they have special grips that keep me from getting electrocuted. There are several different sizes in the set and I have a dozen wrenches in both standard and SAE measurements. I use the 16 mm screwdriver all of the time. Most of the nuts and bolts on an HVAC unit are 16 mm. I was using my 16 mm screwdriver last Wednesday on an HVAC repair and I forgot to grab the screwdriver before I left to go back to the shop. I called the customer and she didn’t find the screwdriver anywhere in the garage. She even looked in the street and in her front yard where my truck was parked. I thought I was doomed to buy a new screwdriver, but yesterday the customer called to tell me that she found my lost tools. The screwdriver fell behind the refrigerator in the customer’s garage when I Was moving things to get closer to the HVAC unit. When the customer was cleaning the area, she noticed the screwdriver and knew immediately that it was my lost item. I’m so thankful that she took the time to call me and get the tool back in my hands. She could have tossed it in the trash and never thought about me again.
