My father is 1 of those boys who consistently says that if something isn’t broken, then you don’t need to repair it; I agree with him to a certain point, but when it comes to my dad’s house, I suppose she could make an exception or multiple.
It took him a very long time just to decide to paint the inside of the house, since she said that her seasoned paint was still covering the walls just fine! When she finally decided to change out her old heating and cooling system, it was only because the whole thing stopped working and caught on fire in the furnace room of her house.
She waited around until she absolutely had to replace the entire thing before she finally did it, and now, with her new Heating and A/C method and new paint, I just pushed on with telling him that she should undoubtedly go ahead and replace the a/c and heating vents in the house, the vents and heating registers in her home are so seasoned and beat up that they make the whole place look rundown and unlived in. I told my dad this and she just said that the and the heating runs through those air vents just lovely and so it doesn’t matter to him what they look like, no matter what I say about it, she refuses to spend any cash to get new a/c and heating vents. Every so often I just don’t understand my dad and her unwillingness to make her home look nice or spend any cash unless she undoubtedly has to.
