My parents have a heavy and bulky space heater that they have used for the past 20 years. My dad won’t replace the machine, because it still works. He thinks it is a waste of money to replace an item that is not real. Unfortunately, the large, bulky, and heavy space heater is the only way they can keep the garage. My dad what’s the space heater in the attic during the summer and he brings it back out towards the end of fall. I offered to help my dad get the space heater last time I was over. He told me it wasn’t cold enough yet. Well, last Monday the night time temperatures dipped all the way down to 25 degrees. Instead of calling me for help, my dad decided to get the space heater on his own. Made it halfway down the stairs before he fell. The space heater tumbled down the stairs and my dad fell on top of it. He had a large cut in his leg that required 20 stitches. My mom drove my dad to the hospital, even though he refused to admit that he was badly hurt. As soon as I got home from the hospital, I went to my mom and dad’s house and through that space heater in the trash. When my dad comes home from the hospital, I’ll go out and buy him something energy efficient and lightweight. I’m sure there are a lot of options on the market that will fit that bill, as long as I look at the hardware store.
