I dont know if i should really call this a rant, but it still bothering me\n\nWell some of you know that a little over a year ago i moved to houston to go to school. This past February i graduated (with honors). I had a 3.95gpa and 97% attendance rate. i only missed time when i was trying to get situated with a job. Anyway since i moved home in Feb, i havent been able to land a job so ive been staying with my mom and dad. It is very hard to go from providing for yourself to being back with your parents. But what do you do. So since ive been home i guess you can say ive been put in charge of keeping the house in order.i understand that that is my role for time being. Although im 25 i still know how to humble myself. Anyway for the past couple of weeks the a/c has been on the fritz. in the past 2 weeks there have been 2 (maybe 3) times where my dad has asked me to stay home or head home because the a/c guy would be coming to fix the unit. all times the guy never showed or either came at like 7oclock. so yesterday my dad asked me if i would stay home this morning and wait for the guy to come back and fixed the unit (just needs refrigerant). i tell him ok yesterday. this morning i wake up and start my job search, again. and i see an ad for a job paying 400/week. i know its not alot but ill take it. the catch is i had to go early so i can catch the hiring manager because he would be going out of town. I leave a message on the door for the a/c saying the back door is unlock so he can check the thermostat if need be. My thinking is it takes about 30 minutes to fill the unit with refrigerant and he can walk in and check the thermostat no problem. i leave. i catch the manager, i get the job, i come home. Dad calls asking what happened this morning. i told him what i just told you. he says "the same door where the dog is?" i said "yea" and he starts flipping out on me and said i should have called and told him so he can tell the guy to come back. so i tell him that the a/c guy has stood by our dog no problem. This dog is a small lhasa apso. nothing is mean about him. and whether i called him or let the guy come and leave cuz i wasnt home either way we would have had to reschedule. but since we live deep in the country i would figure the guy would put refrig in the unit, check it, and bill us. i didnt know a grown ass dude would somehow be afraid of a small dog that he has stood next to and was chained up anyway deter him from filling the unit. I can understand if he would have said he didnt want to come in because noone was home and couldnt go by the note being on the door. but we're talking country living here. we know and trust everybody out here. my problem is not with the guy, its more with my dad. i have waited for this guy to show up before and he doesnt show, then the time he does show, im out trying to find a job so i can move out of my parents house. Damn the a/c, either way itll get fixed. whether its today,tomorrow, or next week. but a job isnt always going to be there these days. instead of jumping down my throat about me not calling you (i did call my mother and inform her), maybe show some happiness that i saw an opportunity and did what i had to do.
