I hated working so many hours a week.
I hated the job I was doing, and I hated that I was there.
I wanted to run away from this job and join an HVAC company. When I was a kid, I was always telling my mom I was going to run away and join the circus, but I’m older now. When I took this job, I wanted to go to school for HVAC, but I didn’t have the money. I graduated from high school, became a father and then I became a husband. I had to be responsible. I took this job right after I turned eighteen. I had to support a wife and a child. I left work and went to my dad’s. I told him how I was feeling and he asked if I could afford to go to school. I couldn’t afford to quit one job and go to school, but I could go to school part-time, if my wife didn’t mind. He asked if it would be any easier if we didn’t need to pay rent. I told him I wasn’t asking for money, but he said he was asking for company. He would babysit my daughter so my wife could go to work, and I could go to school. He could pay the household bills, and all we had to pay was for groceries. I talked to my wife, and she wasn’t receptive at first, but she soon changed her mind. She said she could get a job in the local beauty salon, even if she had to sweep floors, if it meant I could go to the HVAC school and be an HVAC technician.
