I had been toiling at my job for around three weeks.
Already, my coworkers are judging me and I don’t have any friends.
I went into the HVAC corporation because of my mama insisted I had a skill set with heating and cooling tools. She was the master of repairing things, anything that could be fixed, she could fix it, with or without any sorta manual. She was better than my father, plus my father being humble man, didn’t care at all. I remember seeing with fascination as she fixed an air conditioning unit. She took it apart plus repaired it with ease, replacing parts when needed plus making it good as new. While I was away at class, my mother kept calling me on the phone and telling me that I should repair things too. That’s how I ended up here. I started at the local HVAC corporation. I was the only female on staff at that point. When I first arrived, I knew that it was going to be hard to prove to myself that I could actually fix AC equipment. I started shadowing an older gentleman that would only allow me to drive the truck. I eventually found the A/C repair one day before him plus started fixing it. The guy was impressive that even though I was a female I was a wizard with cooling repairs. We started getting along and I was able to do more and more. The other men are still not as friendly. But, they may not appreciate me, however at least they respect me.
