Although my aged man had knocked me around a bunch over the years, the first day I slammed him back was the last day I lived under his roof… I had always taken his horrendous abuse, but finally he pushed me too far.
I was aged enough and large enough to fight the man back.
I don’t want to brag, even though I did kick the snot out of him and leave him resting on the floor. I packed up my stuff, walked out the front door, and decided that my revenge would be living a better life than he ever had, and this is what pushed me through high school, the trade university, and into the Heating and A/C machine industry. I did well in university, but I knew I couldn’t afford university, even though I could work until I could pay for my Heating and A/C education. The local community university had a special Heating and A/C prep course program provided in their night university, just for working class people like me who were attempting to improve their lives. I have to say the instructors there were superb, and not only taught me the ropes, they introduced me to local Heating and A/C techs and companies. In this town, the Heating and A/C community is extremely close, and a lot of these people used to work as techs together years ago. By leaving the luggage of my family behind, I was able to embrace this modern Heating and A/C family, and genuinely get into it. After I got my Heating and A/C certification I was really working a great career with full benefits within a week, and I’m already making more than my father was making.
