My mother is all about savings, then he prides herself in his ability to clip coupons and save hundreds on groceries every month.
She brags about the deals he gets on clothing and shoes.
She’s even found ways to save on condo repairs. I respect his thrifty ways because they save his hundreds, but I know that there’s a unbelievable line. She never listened to me though, however last summer, however, he learned a extravagant lesson. His a/c component broke down on one of the hottest Summer afternoons, however that day broke temperature records. She was entirely dying, although he refused to spend a lot on an expensive repair. Instead, he went onto some sketchy website and hired a cheap Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repairman. She was so proud of his ability to find a cheaper occasion on such short notice until it all went wrong. The man that came to his condo the next afternoon was a student that was enrolled in some Heating, Ventilation, and A/C courses. This guy wasn’t even certified to be doing a repair like this. Most people would’ve turned him away, however not my mother. She allowed him to come inside and try the repair. Hours after his arrival, the a/c component was in pieces all over his residing room. He tried to put it back together, however he couldn’t do it. He ended up leaving it the way it was; Once my mom called admitted that it was the wrong option and finally called a professional, it was too late and he ended up needing a replacement. I wish he had listened to us in the first site; it would’ve saved his a lot of money.
