I am a firm believer that you need to have friends in all the right places.
For instance, if I need my car fixed, my husband has a friend who is a mechanic that takes care of our cars.
In addition, if I get pulled over for speeding which happens once in a while, my husband has a cousin who is a captain at the police department. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t take advantage of the system, but knowing someone at the police station does come in handy. My husband is also good friends with someone who is a handyman so if there is something in our home that he can’t fix, he can always call his friend to help him with it. My husband is an HVAC technician, so whenever his friends and family need HVAC work done, he does it for them. So, he’s the technician for our mechanic as well as for his cousin who is the Captain of the police department. And if the handyman ever has a major HVAC issue that he can’t fix himself, he always calls my husband to help with it. My husband works a lot of hours as an HVAC technician. In fact, during busy season, he could work up to 16 hours per day. However, when he isn’t working and providing service for his regular customers, he’s always helping his friends, family and even our neighbors with any HVAC problems that they might have. It’s good to have friends in the right places and I am glad that my husband and his friends can all help each other out.
