My father always told us that life is too short to be unhappy.
If you aren’t happy with your job, get a new one. If you aren’t happy with your partner, find happiness, or leave before everyone gets hurt. When I got a new HVAC system for my house, I thought about dad’s mantra. Life is too short to be unhappy, but it isn’t nearly as short as the warranty on the new HVAC system. I had a one-year limited warranty on a brand new HVAC system. I had to purchase their maintenance and repair plan to keep the warranty in effect. I was sure that my old HVAC system came with a two-year unlimited warranty. I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t already have a full warranty, and why I had to pay for extra services. If something happened in the first year, I should have had free maintenance and repair without the agreement. I didn’t like that I had to buy an extended warranty before the current warranty had started? When I read the entire contract, I found out they had given me a refurbished HVAC system instead of a brand-new one. There wasn’t anything on the sales sheet about it being refurbished, and I was livid. This explained why I had to pay for all the extra services, and I only had a one-year limited warranty. I called the owner of the HVAC company and asked why they ripped me off? It took a week for an answer, but it was the perfect answer. He would have a new HVAC system delivered and installed. There would be a full-warranty, and it wasn’t costing me a penny.
