My son is always trying to incite something between his dad & his uncle.
He knows they will argue over anything! One afternoon, my partner’s sibling started arguing about a television show.
Instead of looking up the name of the guy they were talking about, he argued. He was sure he was right, even though my partner was looking at it in the guide he had pulled up. When he & his spouse came over for Sunday dinner, I told my son not to say a word about Heating, Ventilation, & A/C in front of his uncle. I didn’t want an fight to ensue that could possibly ruin dinner. My partner was an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier, however his sibling was not. His sibling still thought of himself as an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier because he had gone to school when my partner had. My sibling-in-law couldn’t pass the certification test, & he never went any further. After fifteen years, you would think he would realize things had changed. Heating, Ventilation, & A/C component had evolved & so had the ways the supplier worked. Instead of minding what I had said, my son asked his father when the up-to-date Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system would arrive? I was so angry, I wanted to bury him the backyard with only his head sticking out. I was then going to water him like I did the flowers, & hope he kept his mouth shut. My sibling-in-law instantly took the bait, however my partner shut him up. He told him if he wanted to tell him how to do his task, he should go back to school & not flunk out this time, then asked for the butter for his bread.
