You know, after you get old enough, you finally realize what you can live with and what you can’t.
- It’s weird.
Sometimes you think that everything is fine and life will be okay, and then once in a while you just figure out that what you’ve been doing isn’t working for you anymore. That’s how it’s been with my husband Joe lately. I’ve been married to Joe for the past ten years, and it’s just not working for me anymore. He’s been so annoying to me lately that I could just smack him. He’s been bugging me for a long time, but the last straw with Joe was when he ruined our brand new HVAC system last week. Joe thinks that he’s a Mr. Fix It, but he’s really a dummy when it comes to working on things like heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. Our new HVAC unit needed some new air filters, and I told Joe to leave the HVAC unit alone. I had paid for our local HVAC company to come out and do regularly scheduled maintenance on our furnace and our A/C, and that HVAC maintenance package included regularly switching out the air filters. But my husband, Mr. Know it all, said that he wanted to change the air filters himself. However, I knew that Joe tears up basically everything that he touches, and so I dared him to mess with the air filters on the furnace and the A/C unit. Well, of course, Joe went and did it anyway. And then of course he tore up our brand new HVAC system. I could have killed him for messing with it. Tearing up the furnace and the A/C was the last straw for me.
