Every day, my dad gets up and fools around with the furnace.
- It has been broken for eight days and my mom is getting very frustrated.
She wants my dad to call the service to replace the old machine, but my dad is too stubborn to make the call. He insists the old furnace can be saved. He has been trying to repair the problem for the past week, but my mom has been spending a lot of time at my house complaining. I hate to listen to my mom complain about my dad, so I tried to talk to my dad. I even offered to pay for the furnace and that made my dad even more ticked off. He told me that he didn’t need any help from me or my mom or the damn heating company. I went home feeling a little aggravated and mad. The next day, my mom told my dad that she was going to stay at a hotel until the furnace was replaced. I knew she meant the words, because she never made that threat before. My dad knew she was serious too, so he finally caved in and called the repair service. My Mom still didn’t come home until the furnace was replaced with something new. My dad even tried to convince my mom that a repair would keep them until next year, but she wasn’t going to budge after she made the decision. It might be the first time in twenty years that I have ever watched my mom really stand up to my dad.
