Sometimes I honestly wonder about my wife’s parents.
- I guess they are generally good human beings but all of us have such differing opinions on life that it can be tough to have a real conversation.
For as long as we’ve been married, my wife and I have kept our distance from her parents. If all of us ever get into the same room all of us all wind up arguing because of our differing opinions on politics and culture, and my wife and I happen to be fairly progressive, but her parents are severely conservative. This means all of us get into a lot of verbal conflicts, however you never have any method what is going to set these people off next. A few years ago, for instance, I made the mistake of having a current heating, cooling, and air quality control plan installed in the house. Apparently I should have asked my in-laws opinion about the indoor air handling control devices before I bought them from the local heating and cooling repair shop. Shortly after having the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan upgraded all of us were telling my in-laws about the experience with our current heating, cooling, and air quality control equipment. I mentioned that the entire Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan was now severely energy efficient and I felt good about reducing our carbon footprint. That’s when the conflict erupted. Apparently, my in-laws didn’t want to hear about my energy efficient heating and cooling equipment, because global warming is not real! Everytime the heating and cooling plan comes up all of us have another fight over the conspiracy of energy efficiency. I suppose in-law relationships are complicated, but I am hated because of my Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system.
