Although I consistently had the wish to be a bartender, I ended up being a bouncer.
When people see me, with my height, my bulk, my bald head as well as terribly long beard, they guess I am intimidating.
So I am not aggressive as well as don’t care about fights, but the bosses consistently wanted me at the front door keeping troublemakers from coming into the building. I certainly hated this task, as well as that is what helped push me into education, so that I could find something better to do with my life. It took eighteen months, however finally I got certified in Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C appliance repair as well as was able to move on to nicer pastures. It was certainly nice that my boss threw me a massive going away celebration at the bar, as well as promised to call me whenever they had any Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C problems. It turned out that it wasn’t very long. Seven mornings later the bar owner called me on my personal line as well as asked me to come in as well as look at the air conditioning appliance for the bar. What he didn’t actually know was that for the last 18 months I had been using his Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment for practice. I was pretty much tuning up as well as tinkering with his old Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C equipment to keep it running… Now that I wasn’t there to tend to it regularly, the old girl was breaking down as well as I knew they would need a whole new Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C system. I went into the bar the following evening as well as did my due diligence with the old AC system, but I told the owner the truth of what was going on — he had maybe a few more months before the air conditioning equipment died for good.
