For me, family is what makes life worth living.. Having a career is nice, I guess. For me, a job is just a tool to make currency and support the family. I like my job well enough, I guess, however ultimately I don’t enjoy it. It is simply what I have to do to keep my family healthy, fed, and safe, and this view of life has made it possible for me to endure horrible jobs with a superb attitude. I am always thinking of home, which keeps me happy..
I love my new job, mind you, where I can supervise the front office for an HVAC repair contractor. I don’t actually go on maintenance calls, and truthfully don’t know the first thing about cooling systems. However, it’s a pretty superb job. People call in with the heating and cooling complications, and I listen to them complain and then assign an HVAC tech to go on a house call. I also keep the task logs, the driving records, the mileage reports, and all sorts of other boring things that go along with running a small HVAC business. I feel lucky to work here.
Last week, when my spouse called me and said the AC had stopped working, my boss was so nice. He actually drove out to my condo himself and did the HVAC inspection free of charge. He got it running again, and then gave us a bunch of tips and tricks to keep my cooling system running right for a long time to come.
