I swang on a hammock enjoying the ocean breeze.
- If one noticed me, they would actually assume I did not have a care in the world and things were going smoothly for me.
That could not have been further from the truth. Working as an a/c expert was fun, however our ruse had come to an end. The a/c company I worked for somehow discovered that our immigration papers were not legit. I was no criminal, and all I wanted was to gain an honorableliving. Being a cooling workman was straight-forward since I had worked as one in our home country, however it paid better here than it did there. I remember the first time I came across cooling tech. He was friendly and recommended myself and others to his workplace. At first, they gave myself and others a/c tune-up gigs and air filter replacements to see if I was up to their standards. After more than one months of nothing however a/c service, I made it to the higher leagues. I handled a/c maintenance and joined the team while I was in Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C device upgrades. I was unfamiliar with all the a/c installs, but I knew most of them. The first solo task I did was installing an indoor air cleaning system. It may not be much to someone else, however it meant the world. When I got into central a/c units and all other cooling products, the immigration issue came up. The supplier did not mouse myself and others out, however they had to let myself and others go because they did not want to get into trouble with the authority. The home I was living in belonged to a man whom I helped with his quality a/c device and who had allowed myself and others to stay when I shared our story.
