One thing I dislike about my job are all of the housecalls I have to make on holidays

As an HVAC supplier, I end up having to make a whole lot of house calls on holidays. This legitimately wouldn’t bother myself and others all that much if I didn’t have a family. If I were a single guy, I think that it wouldn’t be that large of a deal. But since I have a partner & 4 kids, it is kind of a large deal! She gets mad at myself and others whenever I have to leave family dinners or holiday celebrations for work. I think that people need to have their air conditioning & furnaces fixed on holidays & weekends, however my partner seems to know that people should just wait until it’s a official workday to call for HVAC repair work. As a professional heating & cooling supplier, I think that isn’t entirely feasible. The people I was with and I have to be available for our purchasers whenever they need us to be there for them, & that includes weekends & holidays, too. Over Memorial Day weekend this year, it was a single of the same situations. The people I was with and I were having a cookout & I was manning the grill while the kids played around in the yard, and suddenly, my beeper from the HVAC supplier went off & when I called in to talk to someone in dispatch, I was informed that I needed to go & repair someone’s air conditioner for them. My partner was not glad about this in the least. She said that there is no such thing as an air conditioning emergency, because no a single is going to die because they are too boiling for a few hours. Of course, I had to go do the air conditioning repair, however when I got lake house my partner was mad at myself and others for the rest of the day.
