I’m delighted to be working as a Heating and AC professional

Working as a barista in a busy city coffee shop wasn’t that bad.

But, I could have done better without all the snide comments from customers.

I understand that working and living in a big city comes with its challenges. Most of my regulars were always flying into the door to grab their favorite coffee while trying not to be late for work. That often led to lots of impatience, and at times angry exchanges. I made it a habit to stop serving until they either calmed down or left the coffee shop. See, this wasn’t a big chain, but a coffee shop owned by this lovely older dude. He was the same way, and didn’t tolerate any fighting in his establishment. When I wasn’t at work serving coffee to city folk, I was attending school. I wanted to work as a Heating and AC professional. But, since my mom couldn’t afford to pay for it, I chose to work full time and attend classes part time. This meant it took longer to finish, but it was better than not pursuing my career. Eventually, I graduated, and that coincided with quitting my barista job. My boss was sad to see me go, but he also knew I wanted to pursue my career. He even came to my graduation, and was happy when I told him I had my HVAC certification. During school, I had made several connections in the industry and managed to land a job only a month after graduating. I’m delighted to be working as a Heating and AC professional in the city, and life is good.
