So I ended up paying the big bill and made sure to make a note to never contact that HVAC company again
Over the course of my life I have always been told that I am always so nice. I hear it at least once or twice per day while I am at work or out in public, and in all honesty I have no clue why I am the way I am… Being naturally passive and very kind was something that worked in my favor when I was younger, but now that I am living on our own and paying my own bills I am starting to see that people are taking advantage of me. My mom told me this would happen sooner or later and I hate to admit it but she was correct… Just the other day while I was having my heating and cooling equipment serviced I started to get a hunch that the repairman who was working on it was trying to squeeze every penny he could out of me! Despite the fact that he worked really slow and took about five “rest” breaks while repairing the equipment she still charged me the full price which I felt was unethical. I was too upset to call her out on it in fear of her perceiving me as being rude. So I ended up paying the big bill and made sure to make a note to never contact that HVAC company again. I hope that those guys like all of the money they just made off of me, because I am officially putting the overly nice person behind me and will be standing up for myself from this point moving forward.
