It wasn’t too long ago when our HVAC company was expanded into different parts of the state.
Because of this, one of our HVAC buildings was in need of some assistance and my boss asked me to go help out for a week.
I didn’t want to leave a bad impression on the boss and so I went. Besides, I was getting free hotel stay and meals for the week, so I didn’t think it was a big deal. On the other hand, my wife was not too thrilled about me being away from her and the family for so long. She said that I should had consulted her about it before choosing to go. She’s probably right, I should have talked to her about it first, but I didn’t feel like I could just say no to the boss. I am highly respected in the HVAC company and if I do good things like this, I might be able to run one of these HVAC buildings one of these days. I try to look at the bright side of the situation, but my wife is still angry with me for making this move. Even when I was finished for the week and made it back home, she was still angry with me and she mostly refused to talk to me. I even told her I didn’t see how she was helping the situation, it was already over and done with. Her ignoring me at home was not spending quality time. At least the kids were still cool with me and didn’t have a huge problem about it. They were actually excited to hear about my experiences working in another part of the state fixing HVAC systems.
