I have this a single uncle who thinks he knows everything about everything.
I am sure there is a know-it-all in every family however I doubt they are all as insufferable as my uncle is.
However, over the years I have l earned to completely ignore him. I just pretend he doesn’t exist or that he isn’ttalking to me. It seems to work pretty good, however especially now that I am an adult. My aunt, his partner, thinks I am incredibly rude however I don’t care. Anyway, I was through a big family celebration in my backyard when it started to rain. All of us all grabbed the food & dashed inside of the house. My uncle said, “shouldn’t you cover your air conditioner?” I ignored him but he kept insisting that I needed to go outside & cover my air conditioner compressor. This is completely not necessary. I don’t even have a cover. If you keep the compressor free of leaves, elevated on the platform it is installed on, & hire Heating, Ventilation & A/C workers every now & again you are not going to have problems with a little rain. And yet my uncle kept insisting someone go out & cover the air conditioner compressor. Finally I had had enough & I told him to stop. I explained that I never, not once, had an issue with the rain hurting my air conditioner compressor. He kept going on & on though. A month later I found out my uncle had to upgrade his air conditioner compressor. Why? Because he ran the with a cover on it in the heat. It got fried. Now who’s laughing?
