My dad has been traveling a ton for work lately.
He works for a hotel corporation & they send him off every time they open a modern hotel… Normally, he is only gone for the opening so it is only a couple of afternoons he is not home.
However, last monthhe found out that he would have to go to China for three weeks to help assist with the opening of their newest hotel. I was so shocked he was going to be gone for that long & I knew my mom wasn’t cheerful about it. My dad said that there were chores around the household that I needed to take care of while he was gone. He wanted me to wash the gutters, make sure the wood for the fireplace was chopped & change the oil filter on the heater. I didn’t even know my pal and I had a heater, I thought my pal and I had a traditional furnace although I suppose I was wrong. My dad took me down to the basement & showed me where the furnace was. He spent about an hour showing me exactly how to change the oil filter on the furnace & I knew that I was going to forget right after he left. I felt exhausting because he went into such detail to show me how the furnace works & how to change the filter. I knew that when it came time to entirely change the filter I was just going to look up a video on how to do it. I just didn’t have the heart to tell him that.
