Sometimes while being a heating and air conditioning specialist your human nature kicks in and you just can not help it.
One time I was working on a central heat and a/c unit and what ended up happening was I hung out with the people I was working for! They were watching the week’s big football game on TV while I was working on their central heating and air conditioning system doing a general HVAC tune up and check up.
Then when i was done I noticed this and started talking to them, and I sat down and had a beer that they offered me and watched the rest of the game with them! It was a good thing that I am an independent heating and air conditioning specialist. Otherwise this would have been the day that I most likely lost my job had I been working for a local heating and air conditioning company instead. The fact that I was a football fan like these people played a big part in this. When the game was done I then finally left and I was nearly late to my next HVAC appointment. It was a good thing that it was 3 hours later. Otherwise I may have lost a client. Nearly slacking off of my job as a heat and a/c specialist was not a good thing and I will have to be way more careful in the future not to let something like that ever happen again! It all is based on self control and knowing what you have to do when you have to do it!
