We are going to be putting a sign in the front yard this week because it’s going to save us some money on our cooling bills.
When my wife first told me that we were supposed to be doing this, I flat out refused to do it.
I told her that our yard was nowhere to be putting ads and billboards to advertise for the local HVAC company. I hate to have anything in our yard that’s not a plant or a flower. I even get mad whenever my kids leave their toys outside in the grass. I couldn’t believe that my wife would offer to put out this HVAC company ad when she knew that I’m not the kind of person who would allow that kind of thing on my property. But when I was done with my tirade about it, I noticed that my wife was just standing there staring at me with her arms folded across her chest. She had a smirk on her face and she asked me if I was done yet. When I finally stopped talking about it, I asked her what she was smiling about. She said that if we put the HVAC company sign out in the yard for a three week period, then we would be eligible for a twenty five percent discount on our new central air conditioning system. Well, when she said that, it changed everything! I was more than happy to leave that HVAC ad out in my yard no matter how trashy it looked! Twenty five percent is twenty five percent, after all.
