I’m really angry with my job and the company that I am employed by.
- I have been a certified HVAC technician for the past 15 years.
I’ve worked at a number of different heating and air conditioning companies. I’ve worked on repairs, service calls, installation jobs, and even in the office. I have a lot of knowledge and a great reputation for being a hard worker. Still, my boss gave me a hard time last week, when I told him that I got hurt on the job. I was carrying pieces of an HVAC component from the truck to a residence. I tripped over a hose on the lawn and the HVAC components toppled to the ground. I fell right on top of the equipment, and I bruised my leg and knee badly. I couldn’t walk well for the rest of the day. When I got home from work, my leg was very swollen and red. I decided to go to the emergency room, just in case I had a blood clot. I found out that my leg was fractured on the interior side. The emergency room cast my leg and gave me all of the paperwork. When I went to work the next morning, I had a conversation with my boss. I told him that my leg was broken from the previous day’s accident. My boss called me a liar, and he said workmen’s compensation would never pay a claim. I never thought about workman’s compensation for a single minute, until I saw the angry look on my boss’s face. I was hurt, and he was ticked off.
