I come from a long line of people who never learn directions and regularly pay as little as possible for every imaginable purchase.
My father was the worst offender of our entire family, I lost count of the plethora of times he had to replace something half a dozen times simply because he insisted on getting the cheapest choice available. He did it recently with a cell iPhone purchase and famously did it once with the roof to our home when I was a kid. That was a horrifying summer, with water dripping from the ceiling and repairmen coming in and out for weeks on end. Although I tried to change as much as possible, numerous of his core values were subliminally instilled in myself and others and manifest to this entirely day. I have been doing it always with repair work, and ended up causing serious damage to our vehicle last year when I took it to a cheap tire store to get serious repairs done, simply because they insisted they could undersell anyone in town. Most would guess an experience love that would be enough to change myself and others for good, but it hasn’t. I have been paying as little as possible for repair and maintenance on our heating and cooling system. Although this has been a pattern for at least more than four years now, I entirely slipped the most in the past 12 weeks, by accidentally forgoing any inspections or repair work done in the full duration. If I had simply put more patience and dedication into the effort love a great homeowner, I might have caught numerous of the serious troubles wrong with our system. Instead, I was told that I have to buy a brand new air handler and condenser unit. I was quoted just under $10,000 because of the size of our home. Despite our continued past blunders, I guess this is easily the last time I will make this mistake.
