It wasn’t my decision to go to HVAC school.

I was doing lousy in HVAC school, and my instructor pulled me aside.

  • He told me I was doing excellent when I first started, and he wanted to know what had changed.

I told him nothing had changed. It was easy then, but it was getting harder. He said that nothing easy was worthwhile. If you had to work for something, it made it all the more important, and you felt like you accomplished something. I turned around and asked him what he knew about it. It wasn’t my decision to go to HVAC school. My father forced me to come here so he could have me in his HVAC company. He wanted an HVAC technician who was his son so he had someone to give the HVAC company to. The HVAC instructor looked at me, and told me to quit. He didn’t care if I was giving away a good career, but it was my decision to quit. He wouldn’t force me to stay or make me feel bad if I left. I got up and started to walk out the door, but something made me turn around. The instructor had my paperwork on his desk, and he was checking something off. I walked back and looked at what he was doing. I had nearly perfect scores in the HVAC classes, and I was throwing it away. I sat down and asked if I could stay in the class? My instructor asked if this was my choice, or if he had convinced him. I told him I could be an excellent HVAC technician if I tried, and I wanted to try.
