People say I am an incredibly forgiving and kind person.
That is great and all, but I think I get taken advantage of sometimes because of this.
While I’ve had some people try this, I was able to call them out and make them realize they can’t take advantage of me. I guess I can still sometimes be clueless though, because I think the HVAC business next to me was taking advantage of my kind nature. While I knew the HVAC company could be a bit unreliable, I didn’t think they would try to take advantage of me. Anyways, the first time the HVAC professional was late, the HVAC corporation personally apologized, and I told them it was completely fine. But when I had them out a second time, they were late with an apology, and then the 3rd time they didn’t come at all. Even though I was frustrated, I still forgave them and made a 4th call. It wasn’t until the 5th time calling them, and they completely blew me off, that I realized they were taking advantage of me being nice and keep coming back even with all of their recklessness. I decided after that, that I was switching to a nice and respectful HVAC supplier. Thankfully, there was another HVAC provider not too far from me, that I decided to try instead, and unlike my former HVAC place, these people were nice, quick and efficient. I think I have found my new place where I will get all of my HVAC needs taken care of.
