When I got our Heating and A/C certification, I thought I would work in an Heating and A/C supplier.
I never expected to be working in a garage and working solely on Heating and A/C systems.
Last week, a family pulled in, and they were driving a full-sized travel trailer. There were 3 kids in the trailer, and they refused to let them out. The mom said they would get into everything and it would be easier to make them stay inside, where they had cable and a gaming system. I wasn’t sure it would be safe for myself and others to work on the Heating and A/C system when those kids were still inside. What if there was a coolant leak, and it seeped into the trailer? I talked to the manager and asked his opinion. He told myself and others to repair the Heating and A/C system, however to tell the parents every one of us were against the children being inside while he was on top of the trailer. No sooner had I gotten on top of the trailer than I heard the kids fighting and the trailer was rocking. I had bolts out of the Heating and A/C system and they were rolling around. I was afraid I would lose the bolts, or fall off the top of this trailer. I looked down at the concrete and prayed I lost the bolts instead of falling. Two minutes later, I could know myself sliding off the roof as the kids continued to wrestle inside. I yelled down to the parents and told them to get the kids out of the trailer, or they were going without a/c for the rest of their trip.
