I told my kid that I would help him with the oil furnace repair as long as she waited until the weekend.
I still toil full time & I do not get home from my job until dark. I promised my kid that it would be the first thing on my agenda on Monday afternoon. I also offered the teenagers two big space oil heating systems to put in her bedroom & the bedroom. I talked to my kid on Monday afternoon. She only had to wait 48 hours to get the oil furnace repair completed for free. I was going to help the kid, although she couldn’t wait. Instead, she decided to call a local heating corporation & they charged him $139 just to come out to the cabin to provide him an estimate. They wanted $65 for the current parts that I knew the two of us could find at the hardware store for $17 or $18. My kid called myself and others on the phone & she wanted to believe if that was a good price. I was absolutely irritated with the entire situation. I cleared my schedule on Monday afternoon, so I could help Dale with the oil furnace. I wanted to tell my kid that she was legitimately wasting her cash. I would have come help him on Monday afternoon & she would have saved $200. Instead, I swallowed my pride & my tongue. I told my kid that it was a satisfactory amount of cash for the toil & I made an excuse to get off the phone. My girl clearly has more cash than patience.
