I work for a local heating and cooling company and we have been doing so many house calls this past month I think I’m going to go crazy.
- I’ve had at least forty hours of overtime each week with the amount of house calls that I’ve had to do.
I don’t typically mind doing house calls because I think they are a nice way to break up the day and you are able to get out of the house and meet new people. However sometimes the homes that you go into our rather sad and it makes you a little depressed once you leave. I recently had this happen to me when I went on an HVAC house call for an old couple. The elderly couple hadn’t had their home cleaned in what seems like months and I was sad upon walking in. I knew they would not be able to afford the heating and cooling repairs that they needed and it made me sad. I wanted to be able to help these people out by offering them my services for free, but I knew my manager would not be okay with that. He also never likes to give things away for free even to the people that really need them and deserve them. I have a feeling this elderly couple really could use the help, but I just can’t offer my help without losing my job. I don’t want to lose my job because then I would end up like this elderly couple and not be able to afford heating and cooling repairs in my own home.
