I come from a somewhat shady family, and I’m nothing like them.
I know that we have the same blood, but I’m shocked that we are actually related. We’re completely dissimilar humans, because my extended family is always up to no good and meanwhile I live my life on the up-and-up. One of my most challenging family members is my Uncle Jerry. He is an under-the-table sort of guy, if you know what I’m saying. Uncle Jerry never visits a real professional for anything that he needs accomplished. He doesn’t need to, because he always “has a guy for that.” Recently, he was trying to convince me that I should hire one of his buddies as a heating and cooling repairman for an extremely expensive Central HVAC system. I had mentioned to my mama that my indoor air quality has been suffering and it seemed as though my central heating and cooling devices needed to be professionally inspected. Somehow, the news got back to my Uncle Jerry who had to offer his two cents about heating and cooling repair services. Namely, he told me that there was no point in paying a certified HVAC technician for something that one of his friends could do for a reduced price. He started telling me about his good buddy who was a whiz with all mechanical issues. He desperately wanted me to hire his “guy” for this air conditioning system inspection. When I asked where his friend even lived, Uncle Jerry told me the man had been living in his shed for a few months now. You know, I think I’ll call a real HVAC technician.
