When he said he couldn’t believe what a beautiful and smart woman I was, I was blushing
My grandmother was a firm believer that women should leave men’s work to the men. She said some jobs were supposed to be done by men, regardless of whether she could do it just as good. When I went to HVAC school, I was sure Grandma was going to have something bad to say to me. Mom told me she saved me from her wrath by not telling her I was going to be an HVAC technician. That was three years ago, but now I’m not so sure what to do. I met my boyfriend at the HVAC company and last week we got engaged. I wanted to introduce him to my grandmother, but I couldn’t tell her I was an HVAC technician. I told Jake not to mention anything to her about where we met, and he was the only one who was an HVAC technician. He told me he was proud of me and what a good HVAC technician I was, but that wasn’t going to sway my decision. I had to tell him why we couldn’t let my grandma know the truth. He laughed and said his grandma thought the same way, but he knew how to handle it. When we got to grandma’s house, Jake gave her a hug and thanked her for having him over. When he said he couldn’t believe what a beautiful and smart woman I was, I was blushing. He then added that without me by his side, he wouldn’t be the HVAC technician he was. Grandma took it that I helped him study, and he didn’t need to lie.
