Last winter, I was really low on cash.
- After contemplating it for months, I quit my job and was living off of my small savings account.
As you can probably imagine, the funds dwindled quickly. I spent months trying to find a new job, but it seemed like no one was hiring. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, my heating system quit on me during the first snowfall of that year. I could not believe my luck! Since I was struggling to keep my fridge full, I definitely did not have the extra money for a costly heater repair. I confided in my friend for some advice. She suggested I try using an online tool that allows me to find people who can do cheap repairs. I was instantly intrigued. This website had all sorts of services listed. There were countless options for a heater repair. I was able to get in touch with someone that same day and scheduled an appointment for that evening. I was excited to finally get some heat on that cold evening! I was in for a much bigger headache. The person who showed up at my door had no business calling himself a repairman. He was in my home for nearly four hours. He had heating parts strewed all over my living room floor. My place was a disaster. Every time he tried restarting the system, my home would fill with smoke. He made the problem much worse! On top of that, when he informed me that I needed to hire a professional, he had the nerve to ask me to pay him! I could not believe what was happening. I kicked him out. Luckily, my dad was able to help with gather the money for a professional repair. I will never be stingy when it comes to a home repair again!
