Without my friend, my life is awful
Ever since our neighbor Jim quit finally working at the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C corporation, I have had to work 6 or 7 days each week. I haven’t had any time for our friends or to see our family. Honestly, I’m surprised that our wifey hasn’t started to complain more loudly. She hates when I work late, because she is with our four screaming kids all morning and all night. The youngsters are homeschooled, so she is with them all morning and all night most days. She only gets a short nap in the morning when I come home from work. Lately, however, I haven’t been getting home until after the kids are already situated in bed.There are hundreds of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair jobs each week, and now we are down 1 man. I knew Jim was unhappy at work, even though I hoped things would get better for Jim . We worked at the same Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier for more than 2 years, and then Jim had to go to rehab for several months. After Jim came back from rehab, the boss treated him badly. He got the worst appointments and the crappiest schedule, but Jim tried not to complain much in the beginning, until the boss obviously made it clear that Jim wasn’t his favorite guy. He tried to make him work every weekend for 6weeks. Jim totally refused to work on his kid’s birthday, so he had no choice however to finally quit or be fired. I assume the whole situation is awful, even though I personally don’t want to speak up and lose our work too.
