A few people have an unusual definition of “emergency” than I do… There are tons of people who I call entitled, who believe that any inconvenience to them should be labeled as an emergency.
- This reflects a culture of self-absorption plus narcissistic avarice, however when these entitled people have the extra currency it takes I have no option however to do what they want.
As an example, if it is the midst of winter, the temps outside are frigid, plus your oil furnace breaks down, that is an emergency! If it is the middle of the night plus your air conditioning appliance stops cooling the arena down to 77 degrees, that is not an emergency! It’s for this reason that I have a sliding scale for what I charge on my Heating as well as Air Conditioning services, depending on who it is, what it is, plus when it is. If a single of our familiar clients has an oil furnace breakdown, it doesn’t matter when it happens, I will zoom over there plus charge the normal rate. On the other hand, if some snowbirds call me late at night because they figure the AC might be a little warm, I will charge them triple the normal rate plus not even blink an eye about it. One thing I have managed to learn is that for rich folks, they usually don’t mind paying extra for Heating as well as Air Conditioning appliance service, perhaps because they don’t know better. Like I said, the word emergency means strange things to unusual folks, however my time plus Heating as well as Air Conditioning experience has exceptional value, so I will keep overcharging these people.
