My hubby’s brother is a heating and plumbing technician.
He works for a company in town that is known all over the country.
The company has offices in lots of different states. My hubby always calls Chet when there is a problem with our heating equipment. The problem is that I don’t particularly like Chet. The guy is always rude and obnoxious. I don’t like his attitude or his racist comments. When the two of us are alone together, I feel anxious and strange. He always stands really close and it makes me feel nervous. When my hubby suggested that Chet come to the house to repair the heating equipment, I told my hubby that I was going to find a different company. My hubby immediately demanded to know why I didn’t want his brother to help with the repair. I told my hubby that we don’t get a discount when Chet comes to help, so there is no reason not to look for a cheaper service. Thank goodness my guy let the conversation go at that. I wasn’t prepared to deeply dive into a conversation about the awkward feeling I get in the pit of my stomach. I found a couple of different places online and I was lucky that one of them had a 15% off coupon for any repair service. I happily called the heating company and made an appointment on the same day. I had the furnace fixed before my hubby came home from work. He didn’t say anything about using a different company when he saw the savings.
