I Don’t Know How to Fix It

My mother called me over to her house with the promise of a meal, but in reality she just wanted me to fix her HVAC system. I’m not sure how she got the idea that I knew how to fix an HVAC system. I’ve done some work around my house, but never anything on that level. When I told her that I didn’t know anything about it, she still wanted me to take a look at the system anyway. It was all foreign to me, so I told her that she had to call someone for HVAC repair in NYC. Being the penny pincher that she is, like most people in our family, she didn’t want to make that call.

Despite how many times I tried to tell my mother that I couldn’t fix her HVAC system, she still wanted me to try and fix it. I looked at it multiple times and there was nothing that I could do. I told her that I would help her find someone that could fix her HVAC system if she would stop asking me to look at it, and she agreed. In less than five minutes, I was able to find a company to fix the system by doing a simple Internet search.

After calling the company and making arrangements for them to fix the HVAC system, I left my mother’s home. She was upset that she had to spend money to get it fixed, but I told her that the price she had to pay wasn’t even that much, and that it would be better than me looking at it for hours, only to do nothing to it. One the HVAC system was fixed, my mother was relieved, but that didn’t stop her from calling me about coming to her house to look at something else.
