My mom and my dad have been the owners of a large heating company for many years. The heating company specializes in repairs to furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps. The heating company also fills propane tanks, and sells a variety of different heating equipment. The heating company sells different types of electric, gas, and oil heating equipment. My parents also have a number of propane and charcoal grills on display. My twin brother and I graduated from high school a few years ago. We decided to attend the HVAC program at a local technical school. My brother and I were planning on joining my parents in the company business. My dad is starting to age, and it’s becoming difficult for him to work 7 days each week. My brother and I have been going to HVAC school for many months, and my brother is failing most of his classes. He complains that the system is rigged, and he thinks all of his professors are jerks. I study much harder than my brother, and he doesn’t try very hard. We have the same classes, and I have no problem scoring high marks. My dad warned my brother that failure is not an option. My brother can’t be part of the business, if he can’t complete the HVAC technical program. My brother seems to be more interested in playing video games and hanging out with his friends. Every time I ask him to study for a test or quiz, he comes up with some excuse. He won’t complete the HVAC program, if he doesn’t start to try harder.
