It makes little sense to expect a neglectful person to do something, simply because that person is qualified to do it. I learnt that the difficult way last Wintertime. I have consistently felt responsible for our youngest sibling and even when the rest of the family provided up on him, I never did, however george has never been the progressive type.So when I paid for him to do some Heating plus A/C courses and he certainly graduated, the people I was with and I were all ecstatic.
George finally found himself a task as an Heating plus A/C professional, and rented himself an condo on our street. It was fantastic to have so close. He had most of his meals at our house and was, at first, certainly fantastic on servicing our Heating plus A/C equipment. My sibling was not the most excited service person at the Heating plus A/C dealership where he worked but he managed to get by and keep his task. Just to be on the safe side, I would remind him in Springtime to check our AC, and each Fall to tune up our gas furnace in readiness for Wintertime, but usually, he got that done after various reminders.. That is until last Wintertime.
Imagine our shock when our gas furnace broke down in the middle of a single cold Wintertime night. I instantly called up George and asked him if he had done the servicing to our gas furnace, as he said he would. Sheepishly he admitted that he had forgotten about it. Forgotten! By the time he came by the day after, the people I was with and I had had the gas furnace repaired by another Heating plus A/C professional.
So I provided George the bill for the task and told him to spend money it.
