I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be an HVAC technician.

I know that after a while, the allure of a job can fade.

You no longer know if you want to stay in your job.

I felt that way about my job at the HVAC company. My wife told me I chose this career, and I had to stick with it. I shook my head and walked away from her. People were meaner than they used to be. No one wants to help themselves. Last week, an HVAC technician had a gun put in his face because he told the owner their furnace couldn’t be repaired. He told the HVAC technician that he either repaired the furnace or they would carry him out in a body bag. I heard of another HVAC technician who had a dog sicced on him for telling the owner he needed a new furnace. I chose to be an HVAC technician, and I chose to own the HVAC company. I wouldn’t have ever thought I would change my mind, and want to do something else. My wife and I sat down and had a serious chat. I told her how I was becoming disillusioned and realizing not everyone is glad to see the HVAC technician. There is an animosity that comes with the job, because some people feel they can name their own price. Many people don’t think they should have to pay, and will haggle over the price. Haggling is fine, if their price isn’t being forced on the HVAC technician. Let them call and haggle with me. I’m the one who gives the final determination on the costs of HVAC systems and repairs. My wife patted my hand and told me I can’t change the world, but I’m making some people’s world more comfortable.
