A couple of days ago I ended up having the worst day at work.
While there are many people who say that when they have a day that they just had one or two minor inconveniences I actually mean it when I say this was the worst day of my professional career.
Over my ten years of working as an HVAC repair tech I have had to deal with many tough situations. On that particular day I was already feeling a bit dehydrated and light headed, and after many hours of working on this tricky and dilapidated A/C unit in a client’s hot garage I ended up passing out on the spot. The next thing that I knew I was laying on my back with a handful of emergency response personnel looking down on me. It wasn’t that I felt all that bad at that point, it was mostly the embarrassment of passing out on the job. I am a very serious type of guy who takes my job seriously, so thinking that the clients could potentially think that I am some sort of rookie HVAC tech was a living nightmare to me. Anyways, after a day or two of bedrest I was given a clean bill of health and my first day back on the job is scheduled for tomorrow. I’ve never taken sleep and nutrition that seriously before my accident, but now that I am getting older and had to go through that disaster I am going to make sure that I do something like that never happens to me ever again.
