Sometimes you have to do things yourself, or at least, that is my husband’s motto.
And as someone who spent many hours repairing electronics such as cell phones and TVs, I agree that that is sometimes the case.
But sometimes he takes it too far. You see, my husband noticed that our home didn’t feel quite as comfortable as it usually does. He brought it up while we were eating dinner, and I told him that I thought that the HVAC machine was having issues. He paused and then got up from where he was sitting. He immediately went over to the thermostat and started fiddling with it. He turned it up and down, to see if anything would change. But no matter what he did, the HVAC device would not budge. Instead of calling out a professional heating and air conditioning specialist, he decided he wanted to work on it himself. I told him that was a bad idea, but he didn’t think so. As long as he had the internet, he thought that he could solve anything. I didn’t think it was a good idea, but I wasn’t going to stand in his way. I left for work a little while later, and when I came home, I found my husband covered in sweat laying on the floor. I panicked and rushed to him. He was fine, but as he sat up, he told me that we were going to call a heating and A/C worker after all. Never again was he going to try and repair an air conditioner.
