My parents do the snowbirds thing and they live down the street from me. It is entirely convenient for them that I live nearby, not entirely for me. When my parents leave I abruptly have a lot of work to do. My mother is all over me to water her plants on a biweekly basis. My father wants me to beginning their motorcar and transport it around the property almost everyday. They frequently mess up and send packages to the southern home or see something on the security camera that I need to check out. The worst is when they hire a repair done and I need to babysit the business. My father likes to have a Heating as well as A/C business come to the home when they are not there. I then need to take a morning off of work to babysit the Heating as well as A/C business, pay him and then hound my parents to reimburse me. If there is a repair needed, it is such a mess. My father won’t directly talk to the Heating as well as A/C professionalâ€¦ So I am the go between guy asking questions, hashing out prices and scheduling another appointment that I am invociennce. I usually just tell the Heating as well as A/C business to make hte repair right then and there and I pay for it. It is worth a few hundred bucks not to have my father haggling over the iPhone with me translating. Someday they will live down south full time. That will be nice since I might make them home kneel when I go on holiday. I will make sure to get a Heating as well as A/C tune up during it.
