If I’m not vigilant when cleaning out a ductwork system for a residence, the air quality will remain poor! Since the work has such a strong potential for rework, I tend to lose my nerve on more than one occasion during a repair.
You know, it’s not easy to admit that I can be… irritable. Okay, I’ll say it – I have an anger problem. For the longest time, I used to believe that my anger was something that I inherited, but that may not be the case! As it turns out, anger is something that you learn from someone in your life – parents, other family members, you name it. So, I’m trying to re-learn how to manage my anger! I’ll admit though, it’s not the easiest process to manage. Since I work in the HVAC industry, a lot of what I do requires patience and tedious attention to detail. If I miss a step in the process for repairing a gas furnace, I have to be careful in retracing my steps. If I’m not vigilant when cleaning out a ductwork system for a residence, the air quality will remain poor! Since the work has such a strong potential for rework, I tend to lose my nerve on more than one occasion during a repair. Most recently, I had to deal with this while handling a routine A/C unit repair at this guy’s house. The client was this crotchety old man who got onto me about every single thing I did! It was also very hot outside, with no clouds in the sky to shield me from the sun. These were the perfect conditions for me to lash out in anger, but nope! Instead, I kept my cool, remembered my strategy for coping with stress, and simply stayed focused on my work. Working in the heating and A/C industry is a great way to test how effective I am at managing my temper!
