I had just started laboring for the Heating and A/C company and hadn’t yet been on my own, however as an apprentice, I rode with one of the old Heating and A/C contractors and helped him with his task, then i was only there multiple weeks when the owner of the Heating and A/C company asked me to do a simple service on an AC unit.
Right before they hired me, I did a stupid thing and raced one of my friends down the middle of the streetâ€¦ His car was faster and he could outrun the police, but I wasn’t so lucky.
I pulled over, hoping the police officer knew I was trying to do the right thing and he would not write me up. He not only wrote me up, but I had a ticket that cost me my license. I was doing double the speed limit of the road I was on, which was an automatic suspension in our stateâ€¦ They impounded my car, and I had to call my dad to option me up. I told my boss I wasn’t able to drive the service van, and he thought it scared me because it wasn’t my personal vehicle. He promised it would be okay because he had excellent insurance. I hung my head and explained I didn’t have a license and told him why. He shook his head and asked why I hadn’t told him when he hired me? I shrugged, petrified I was going to be fired. He asked how long I would be without a license? He called the DMV and got me a license that would only allow me to drive the labor vehicle.
