My girlfriend was living in Orlando and she wanted me to move to the city to be with her.
I tried to find a job working for a heating or AC repair service close by, but the only job I could find was working for a Lakeland HVAC business. I decided to take the job with the Lakeland HVAC business. I made the one hour commute for a while and then my girlfriend and I decided to get a place that was halfway between my job and hers. We both have to leave the house early in the morning to get to work on time, especially when it is tourist season. The summer months are a mess because everyone is taking their kids to the amusement parks. Sometimes it can take 30 minutes just to travel 2 miles. I don’t mind not having to drive around in all of that traffic. Once I start heading over to Lakeland, I usually spend the whole day working on heating and AC repairs that are right there in that city. I don’t have to worry about dealing with traffic or all of those cars. It is a madhouse out there and I am happy to avoid that. My girlfriend on the other hand does not mind driving and all of that traffic. It takes her about 30 minutes to drive 6 miles to her job at the amusement park. I told her that she should look for something else that is close to Lakeland, but there is no way that she is going to give up a job working for the happiest place on earth.
