There has been a surge in customers at my HVAC workplace.
I’m not sure what my HVAC business is doing, but it is attracting a ton of new customers.
Because of this, we are quickly getting almost too many customers, which is causing long wait times. Since most people are too impatient to wait that long, that ends up driving people away. So my boss has offered something that he hasn’t offered before. He offered overtime to any HVAC technicians that would be willing to stay and work on people’s HVAC units past the time to go home. I was immediately interested, as honestly, I have nothing really to do at home, I am single and usually just relax, so I was definitely interested in the prospect of making a bit of extra money. I thought that I would have to fight for the overtime, but to my surprise my HVAC coworkers didn’t seem all that interested. Only me and one other guy decided to take it. I would work 2 hours overtime everyday to help with the surge of new customers. I started doing overtime every week now, and although I am definitely more tired than usual, I’m no longer bored and I am going to love my next paycheck. It will definitely be worth it then. Especially since I don’t know how long my boss will offer overtime, so I am taking advantage of it while I can. I’m actually still trying to figure out what am I going to do with all of that extra money. Maybe spend a little on myself, or make an emergency fund, I’m still deciding.
