When my sibling told all the people that she wanted to be an Heating and Air Conditioning service technician, the family freaked out! I don’t know why, though. My sibling was 15 years old at the time, sure – and it seemed like such a major decision to just make on a whim! Still, she seemed like she really wanted to attend the technical school for the last 2 years of her public education. She would be able to acquire her school diploma, all the while studying the heating and air-conditioning trade. She needed our parents permission to switch to the technical program and school though. Hesitant at first, my parents were legitimately surprised and shocked by my sibling’s decision! They thought it was crazy for a girl to choose a man’s profession! My sibling thought that was ridiculous too, though she told them it was all so sexist. My sibling begged and pleaded for a week, yet our parents fought him the whole way until they finally decided to consider looking at the Heating and Air Conditioning service program. My mom asked for my input on the matter as always, because I was the oldest and already in school. Even though it was still the early 90s, I told my parents that they were being unrealistic about what my sibling can do. They wanted our sibling to choose her own future, yet they dangled the keys over her like she was a trick dog! I told our mom and dad that it was better not to argue about her choice. It was definitely the right choice, as each of my siblings signed up for the Heating plus Air Conditioning service classes. My parents signed the forms for all of them, too! My sibling completed that class, and went on to do wonderful things!
