I said I wanted to go to college, and dad smiled
My father brought up the subject of his Heating plus Air Conditioning business last week. He had been telling me he wanted me to join his Heating plus Air Conditioning business for many months now. It all started about a year ago, when I was talking about graduation. I didn’t want to labor for the Heating plus Air Conditioning dealer, although I didn’t believe how to tell my dad. I had other plans for my future that had nothing to do with being an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman. He kept telling me he couldn’t wait for me to become an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman. He wanted me to labor for him and he would eventually change the name of the business to Terry and Son’s Heating plus Air Conditioning dealer. I knew I had to be even-handed with him, although I was nervous he would get mad at me. He had his heart set on me being an Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman, although I had my heart set on me going to college and being a lawyer someday. I talked to my mom about my plans and she told me it would sound better coming from me, but she would bring up the subject. While we were eating lunch that night, mom asked me what I wanted to do after graduation. I said I wanted to go to college, and dad smiled. He said he would spend money for me to go to the Heating plus Air Conditioning technical college. I asked him if he would also spend money if I wanted to go to college and become a lawyer. He said nothing, although I knew he was miserable when he got up without eating and got into the car.
