Why Are So Many HVAC Techs Perverts?
What is it about this business? Does the trade attract perverts or does it create them?
I started working full time in HVAC when I was 17 years old and I was about as sheltered as I could be. I was homeschooled, Grew up in a strict Christian home and the only TV I was allowed to watch sports.
Let’s just say that my first few days working as a trainee was a rude awakening…
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about an innuendo here and there or an off color joke… I’m talking about the kind of stuff that you WOULD NEVER say in front of basically anyone other than the other nasty dudes you work with. Talking about women as they walk by… talking about stuff they had done that i’m pretty sure is physically impossible… Talking about stuff they watch online…
Over and Over and Over
If you are a tech you know what i’m talking about here.
Why is it OK in our workplace… any workplace to talk like that?
I’m not here to pass moral judgement on others, I just hope we can take a good long look in the mirror and see if that is who we are as professional technicians?
Maybe I don’t have the answer… but maybe you do.
Why does the trade appear to be OK with perverted talk at work?
