I asked who complained about me now? He showed me the letter and told me no one complained.
I kept remembering what my mom would say when I had a particularly bad day at school. She would sing the song, ‘Momma says’ that goes momma said there would be days like this. I could understand there being days like this, but I was having weeks. I was having weeks on end of people yelling at me and making me feel like the worst HVAC technician in history. One lady told me to get out of her house, and never come back. An old man chased me out of the basement, and said there was a place for thieves like me, just because he didn’t like the bill. This had been going on for weeks, and I was ready to say I wanted to give up on being an HVAC technician. My boss called me into the office, two days after I finished penning my resignation. He told me he had received that I had been nominated as one of the top HVAC technicians in the area. I couldn’t even smile, but I didn’t believe him. I asked who complained about me now? He showed me the letter and told me no one complained. He really did receive the letter. I’m not sure what shocked me most; the fact that I received a good word about my work, or that he hadn’t received any complaints in the last two days. Maybe things were going to turn around, and I would be a top HVAC technician again, but I wasn’t going to count on it. I was sure people were getting stressed over the upcoming holidays, and it would just get worse over the next couple of weeks.
