Last year, when our child graduated high school, he decided he didn’t want to go to school. He made his decision to go to technical school and become a Heating and A/C specialist. He spent a year learning all about heating, a/c, and ventilation systems. By the time he got his Heating and A/C certification, he was convinced he was the best Heating and A/C specialist to ever graduate from the course. I just raised an eyebrow, and I didn’t say yay or nay. I held our tongue and waited for him to fall off his self-made pedestal. When he started working for the local Heating and A/C business, he soon got his comeuppance. They had numerous Heating and A/C specialists that all had at least many years experience. For his first 2 weeks, he had to go with one of the older Heating and A/C techs so he could learn the ropes. He soon found out that working on a Heating and A/C system in someone’s home was much odd than working in a closed environment. At the end of the first week, was dragging, and not just because he was fatigued. He couldn’t think how much he hadn’t l gained during school. He said they didn’t tell him how numerous odd Heating and A/C systems there were. He also didn’t know the difference between the A/C parts and the oil furnace parts. His next 2 weeks are going to be working in the parts room before he gets to go on a service call by himself. His ego had been deflated, however now he was ready to become a good Heating and A/C specialist instead of an excellent Heating and A/C student.
