I suppose that just comes with the territory of having elderly parents in an old house
Over the course of my heating as well as A/C job I have dealt with an immense variety of clients both great and bad… But keep in mind that while at least ninety percent have been good, there are consistently those bad examples that are few and far between. While I would love to consider myself to be one of the lucky technicians that has had a majority of them be great clients that I have absolutely become friends with over the years, I would have to say that the worst clients I have had over the past 20 years is definitely my parents. I do not guess I could ever be able to tell you the exact reason why this is the truth, but for some reason whenever I head over to my parents house to catch up with them and have brunch they never fail to bring up something that they need fixed with their air conditioning unit. But, I have already given them advice at least a dozen times to replace that old piece of junk from the seventies with a more new heating as well as A/C device that will last them for several years to come. The truth is that both of them are just simply stuck in their old ways and would rather provide myself and my siblings with a hard time about fixing old things in the house rather than taking care of the actual problems. And the worst aspect is that while my other clients give money to me, the hard thing I do for these more than one consistently ends up being 100% free. And yes, of course I love my parents, but after several years of doing free heating as well as A/C repairs I suppose you can say that I’m starting to get a little bit tired of it all. I suppose that just comes with the territory of having elderly parents in an old house. After a lifetime of taking care of me, I suppose it’s time for myself and my siblings to take care of them.
