My boyfriend James is extremely handy and my whole family knows it. At first it was really nice that everybody appreciated how skilled he was. We would come over for dinner and he fixed my dad’s sink. We would play cards at my sister’s house and then he would clean up her air conditioner. Now it has gotten to be ridiculous. My family is basically using my boyfriend for free labor. He gets called by someone all the time to do a repair. He does plumbing, electrical and HVAC work. I am going to put my foot down on this the next time I see my family. It is ridiculous that my boyfriend is basically the repairman for the family. If he was a HVAC technician and they paid him, that would be different. However, my boyfriend does not get paid or work in the HVAC field. The poor guy literally has to google issues and deduce the problems all on his own. The worst was my brother called him about his furnace not running. James went over and found a worn out part. Not only did he fix the heater, but he had to go downtown and pay for the part. I am going to kill my brother when I see him next. My boyfriend is just too sweet to tell the freeloaders off. I am going to tell them no more HVAC repairs, no plumbing service and no free electrical work. He either gets paid or he is not doing it at all. I should have hid his skills from them.
