My boyfriend Raymond used to be on the wrong side of the law. I guess back then I liked guys who were considered to be bad boys. He used to sell all kinds of stolen merchandise and I hate to say that sometimes he would even steal the merchandise himself. I hate to admit that he was a thief and a criminal, but he really was one. But then I came along and he decided that he wanted to become a straight shooter, so to speak. He did end up going to jail on some outstanding warrants but once he got out, he got a job at a local heating and air conditioning company as an apprentice and general laborer. I guess this particular HVAC company was willing to work with people who had a record, and boy, were we glad that they gave him a chance. That’s because Raymond found that he really had a knack for the heating and air conditioning business. He actually became somewhat of a prodigy when it came to furnace maintenance and repair. Eventually, the manager of the HVAC business ended up sending Raymond out on all of the oil furnace and the electric furnace maintenance and repair jobs. These days, after a few years on the job as an HVAC repair technician, Raymond is one of the most honest and forthcoming guys I know! I trust him implicitly and I don’t think he will ever go back to his old ways of doing business. I hope that he will end up being a furnace technician for a long, long time.
