When he thought that perhaps he needed a tool and left for the hardware store, I got to work
My partner has a temper. I try to get him away from new home projects because when they don’t go well, he goes insane. It is not abnormal for him to whip his tools across the grass, yell the F bomb in addition to “punish” the project by leaving it. He doesn’t handle failure entirely well, then occasionally he even damages the project or hinders it with his outburst. The complication is that my partner is constantly eager to start one. I obtained a ductless mini split for the kitchen. I learned online and saw that the HVAC replacement could be done by the homeowner. I owned all the necessary tools and watched tons of videos. I did some practice drilling and learned online. I was more than ready to do my ductless HVAC replacement. When my partner saw me gearing up to go, he pushed me out of the way. He is the guy after all, he can do it. Well he hadn’t done the research I had. He was consistently making mistakes and ruining my new HVAC unit. He started handling it roughly, swearing under his breath and I was concerned about him denting the unit. When he thought that perhaps he needed a tool and left for the hardware store, I got to work. I was frantic, hoping to finish before he got back. I got all the horrible drilling, feeding refrigerant tubes and wires out of the way, my partner came back when I was mounting the dinoor air handler. He was calm by then and the project was going well thankfully.
