I have five siblings, and every one of them are girls.
By the time I was 16, I was almost a foot taller than even my tallest sister, 5’ 5”.
When she graduated from high school, she went to school to become an HVAC technician. I had talked about becoming an HVAC technician from the time I was 10 years old and an HVAC technician had come to the house and allowed me to watch while he repaired the air conditioning unit. I knew he was taking pity on me being the only boy in a house full of girls, but it was fun to watch him working on the air conditioning system. The tallest of all my sisters was only 5 years older than I was, and before I graduated from high school, she was one of the top HVAC technicians in our local HVAC company. I swore that one day I was going to be a better HVAC technician than she was. I signed up for the HVAC courses right after graduation and worked hard to stay at the top of my class. I graduated number one in my HVAC classes, and I got the highest grade on my certification exam. I even secured a position in the same HVAC company my sister was working at. I was going to be placed with a mentor for the first six weeks. It devastated me when that mentor was my sister. I went to the HVAC company manager and asked if I could have another mentor other than her and he said no. I was afraid my sister is always going to be a better HVAC technician than I am if she is my mentor.
