It is very difficult to live with a sceptic. Regardless of how hard you try, you can do nothing to please such a person. My sister, Joan, is like that. She believes in nothing, finds fault with everything, and makes everybody else uncomfortable. Her latest complaint is about our air conditioning.Though she controls the thermostat most of the time, the temperature is hardly ever right for her.
We have a central air conditioning unit, which we keep well tuned up, since we all enjoy great indoor air quality. Since we have an A/C technician in the family, we don’t even have to pay for tune ups and repairs. The HVAC works fine so I don’t know what is wrong with Joan! Since we use the furnace so much during cold weather, our utility bills happened to be quite a bit higher that previously, but any fool knows that that is normal. My sister doesn’t see it that way and is refusing to pay her fair share of the bill. So all her complaints about the HVAC unit are pure lies, just because she wants to avoid paying her way..
She is not going to get away with that though. It will be three against one, since none of the rest of us is prepared to pay Joan’s share. She will have to cave in and pay up eventually, of course. She cannot live without climate controlled air and if bills are left unpaid, the electric company will cut off our supply. I hope it doesn’t come to that but if Joan remains stubborn, it probably will.
