My son used to work with me, but he has been going through a lot of things.
He used to be reliable.
I could count on him whenever I needed something done. I felt very happy to make him a partner in my heating and AC repair and installation business. I taught my son everything that I know. I taught him about the different heating and AC machines and I taught him all about the business side as well. I went through the books with my son so he could see how all of the expenses were paid. He watched me write checks to the various vendors and service providers. My son was doing great until he moved to Alsip with the girl from the trailer park. My son met the girl at a bar and I could tell that she was a bunch of trouble the first time that my wife and I met her. After she moved my son to Alsip, all of the problems started. My son often showed up for work late. I tried to talk with him about his behavior, but he brushed me off and acted like it was no big deal. Last weekend my son was working on an AC repair job in Alsip. He took his girlfriend with him and she was outside in the truck. She got bored and went inside of the customer’s house to find my son. The customer called me because she was very upset. I had to comp 50% of the fees that the customer was paying for the repair in order to keep her business.
