I told him not to say a word about HVAC.

My son is always trying to incite something between his dad and his uncle.

  • He knows they will argue over anything.

One afternoon, my husband’s brother 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 husband was looking at it in the guide he had pulled up. When he and his wife came over for Sunday dinner, I told my son not to say a word about HVAC in front of his uncle. I didn’t want an argument to ensue that could possibly ruin dinner. My husband was an HVAC technician, but his brother was not. His brother still thought of himself as an Hvac technician because he had gone to school when my husband had. My brother-in-law couldn’t pass the certification test, and he never went any further. After fifteen years, you would think he would realize things had changed. HVAC equipment had evolved and so had the ways the business worked. Instead of minding what I had said, my son asked his father when the new HVAC 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, and hope he kept his mouth shut. My brother-in-law instantly took the bait, but my husband shut him up. He told him if he wanted to tell him how to do his job, he should go back to school and not flunk out this time, then asked for the butter for his bread.
