I have to hand it to our parents.
They are just so relaxing and I’m ever so lucky to be their son.
I’m the youngest and it looked for a while that I might be the 1 who got through early adulthood separate from having to transfer back in to the quality heating and air of home. I have 2 older siblings who both had to transfer home to sort of reboot life. My oldest sibling got pregnant his freshmen year of university and he came home to the air conditioner at mom and Mom’s. My other sibling, a classic major, had to live at home for almost 3 years after he graduated university because he couldn’t find a task in his field. And there I was, got through our undergrad and then grad school. Next, I was off to the zone controlled office of the finance company I had wanted so bad to labor for. Things were golden. While I was still on an entry level salary, it was nothing to sneeze at. I had our own lake house with relaxing Heating, Ventilation, and A/C equipment. That’s not a pairing you see all that often. I was right on track to just keep going deeper into our work. Then the pandemic happen and everything went up in smoke within 3 weeks. It started with being sent home from that zone controlled Heating, Ventilation, and A/C. A few weeks later, I got laid off with legitimately little chance of immediate rehire. I swallowed what pride I had left and took our parents up on their support. Plus, they just had current Heating, Ventilation, and A/C component installed so I got to love that as well. My prospects brightened a year later but I’m sure grateful to mom and Mom for the love, support and relaxing air conditioner when I so needed it.
