Even though I am a grown man with a wife and a baby on the way, I still rely on the advice of my amazing mother to help get through this crazy thing called life.
The other day while I was over at my moms house having lunch, I asked my mom what she would think if we had a new air conditioning unit put in.
I had some fears that our current a/c unit would end up being a little too loud for our baby and it was time for a new one. To my surprise, however, my mother said that I shouldn’t do it. She said that the local HVAC company in town has had a change in management and the quality of work has gone down an extreme amount. Most people would have just ignored their parent at this point and done what they wanted to do in the first place, but I am not one of those people. I decided to wait it out and see if the a/c unit would be a problem for our little one. A few weeks later I noticed that the front page of the newspaper was talking about how the local HVAC company has been shut down for good and the owner has been fined for lying to customers and stealing money. I have no idea how my mom knew about this or if it was just suspicion, but she most likely saved us from being in a load of trouble and losing tons of money right before the baby came. Things like that are the reason why I trust what my mom says and will take her word over anyone in the world!
