Years ago when I was still living at home with my mom as well as dad, my dad used to show us how to repair all kinds of things, but he was really great at fixing things around the home as well as on cars, too.
- He used to repair grass mowers, chainsaws, refrigerators, furnaces, and also cooling systems for all kinds of people in our city, but occasionally he charged them a few dollars, however a lot of the time he would do it for free just because he knew that they might be struggling financially.
My dad was pretty great about doing stuff prefer that for people who were having a hard time, however I can still remember once when this lady came as well as asked him if he could repair her old broken down oil furnace for her, then she was a widow as well as she had numerous youngsters to take care of. It was almost Winter as well as the rapidly decreasing temperatures outside were already cooling down a lot and she told me that she couldn’t afford to spend money on the boys at the HVAC business to come as well as repair the furnace for her. Since my dad knew how to repair just about everything, he went over to her home to take a look at the oil furnace. He had a feeling that the problem as well as got the furnace up as well as genuinely working again before the first snowfall of the year. I will never forget the look on that lady’s face when he informed her that he wasn’t going to charge her anything for fixing the furnace. My dad was really great at fixing things, but he was also just a really great person.
