They always try to pay but dad refuses to take even a coin from them
I wasn’t sure about my dad coming to live with me in my home. But, my son was all for the idea. I love my dad. He is the most amazing man in the universe. But, it had been 20 years since we lived under the same roof. After moving out, I’d go home to visit from time to time. However, it was always for about a week then I’d leave. But, now that mom is no longer with us, I know dad has been lonely. His only joy seems to be with his grandchild. So, I suggested he sell the huge family house and come to live with us. Dad never hesitated and I knew he’d been waiting for me to ask. It’s been great having him around since he’s a wizard at many things including fixing the HVAC systems. Dad trained and worked as a HVAC technician. For about 40 years, he was the area HVAC technician where I grew up. He’d always make an effort to retrain on the latest HVAC technology. As a result, his employer ensured dad was happy and highly paid for his prowess at working on HVAC units. Now, I don’t have to pay any maintenance or repair fees for the HVAC system at home. Dad already has a schedule set of when he does the spring and fall tune-ups. He’s also been retraining to learn more about the latest HVAC systems. My friends have really benefited from his free HVAC skills. They always try to pay but dad refuses to take even a coin from them. He loves working on these units so he isn’t at home bored when his grandson is in school.
