I realized several years ago that I have often made the mistake of assuming other people knew what they were talking about.
I have regularly had such little confidence in myself that I have regularly appealed to other humans for their opinions on important matters.
I don’t think that this is the wrong thing to do, but I also don’t think that their advice should be taken as infallible facts. This is something that I finally absorbed after my massive heating, cooling, and air quality control failure last month. Now, for the past several months I have been obsessed with my indoor air temperature control equipment. I could tell that my heating system and air conditioning unit were not running well. For the past season or two, I’ve been waiting for the indoor air temperature control devices to break down on me. I have not been very proactive with the air quality equipment problem because I don’t have a lot of extra cash for a professional temperature control repair. At the same time, I don’t know who to trust as a certified heating, cooling, and ventilation control dealership. So, I decided I would ask a friend. She rapidly recommended a local heating, cooling, and ventilation technician and gave me his professional HVAC worker card. I promptly called the number and the HVAC technician inspected my indoor air temperature control devices. Too bad, he didn’t know how to fix them! When I mentioned the HVAC mishap to my friend, she seemed disappointed. She told me it made her sad that her boyfriend was such a poor heating and cooling technician. Oh.
