I quit being a HVAC tech
After several years of working for the same HVAC company, I finally quit yesterday.
It wasn’t because my HVAC workplace was bad, or that my coworkers were awful or even that the pay was bad.
It was actually because of the customers. I knew there were definitely some bad people out there, but after servicing some of my HVAC customer’s A/C systems, and seeing how nasty some people can be, I didn’t realize how bad it was. I don’t know what it was about my former HVAC corporation, but they seemed to attract all of the nastiest customers. I hear that other HVAC suppliers don’t have such issues, so maybe I will go for another HVAC provider. One such customer that I serviced thought he knew it all. Their air conditioning unit was broken, so when I was kneeling down to figure out what had broken the A/C, this guy kept leaning over me and pointing out all of the parts of the A/C unit, most of which was wrong. That wouldn’t have been so bad if it wasn’t for the fact that when I actually started to fix his air conditioner for him, he started telling me I was doing it wrong! I was so close to just telling him if he is so smart, then he can do it himself. But I kept my mouth shut. Another incredibly irritating customer was a customer that kept attempting discounts, or part of her A/C repair bill price deducted for various reasons. When I didn’t comply, she threatened to speak to the manager and get me fired! I can’t deal with idiots all day, and that’s why I quit.
