I was working on an a/c equipment last week; My daughter had just completed HVAC classes and was waiting for her certification to arrive.
Once it got to the office, I was going to have her working with one of my older HVAC dealers, however she stood behind me when I was cleaning and prepping our a/c for summer, and she kept saying she could never be the HVAC supplier I was, i assured her she could be better, although she didn’t guess it.
I wanted her to do the inspection and minor repairs, although she refused. I was almost done, when an idea finished making into my head. I hung my head and told her I wasn’t feeling well. I had to get out of the sunlight and get some tylenol and something to drink. She was upset about me, but I told her she had to complete the inspection on the a/c unit. She had to make sure the paperwork was complete, and take care of all the cleanup. She said she wasn’t ready to do all this, but I knew she was. She had to prove it to herself, or she was going to talk herself out of being an HVAC dealer! Half an hour later, I sat in the kitchen seeing her outside the kitchen door. She came inside and I smiled. She told me to wash the smug look off my face, because she knew it was a ruse and I wasn’t sick. I wouldn’t have remembered to tell her to do the paperwork if I had been. She did a marvelous job with the a/c unit.
