My Dad is one of the cheapest people I have ever met.
I guess a lot of her thriftiness is that she undoubtedly knows how to bargain with people. She must have been descended from some of the original barterers. Last week, I told her she needed a modern Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C plan for the house. I did my best to convince her she had to have at least a modern gas furnace since Wintertide would soon be here, although she refused. She kept telling me that as long as this one was running; she would not replace it. I wasn’t sure what I was going to say after that one, although I knew I had to try. I asked her what I had to do to convince her that a modern gas furnace was a necessity. The one she had would not make it through another winter. She told me she wanted a professional to tell her. I had to laugh because I was a Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C specialist. I was not only a specialist, although I was getting my own dealer. I reminded her of this, as well as she blew me off. I called a coworker as well as one woman who was going to go into my modern contractor venture with me. She came over to the home as well as told her she was going to need a modern gas furnace. She told him to supply her a estimate so she could bargain with him. Once she got the quote, it took her an hour to get him down numerous hundred dollars as well as to include free air filters as well as a 2-year maintenance as well as maintenance agreement.
