My husband has been trying for weeks to figure out a way to repay our buddy for his kindness. The reason it is so difficult is that he is older basically has everything he needs, hates to eat out, plus has no hobbies. If any of those were an option, both of us could get him a gift card, take him to lunch, or buy him something he needs. You see, he is consistently there with a tool to repair something, to check on the beach house when both of us are away, or to do just about anything both of us need. He even provided to take the car to the shop for myself and others 1 afternoon because he knew our kid was sick. He is the nicest guy! But, back to our delima, both of us absolutely wanted a way to help him out that he would appreciate, last week I was talking with our neighbor’s kid plus he said something that may be the perfect answer for us. He said that his Mom was having trouble with his furnace plus he was going to call the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C contractor in town to get it looked at. I suppose it sounds like an untypical gift, but, I provided to take care of that for him; He agreed plus I called the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C contractor that afternoon. I arranged for them to call up our buddy plus tell him that he had “won” a free check up of his Heating, Ventilation plus A/C system. They went along with it plus understood that both of us would be paying for the service. I also told them that, provided it wasn’t hundreds of dollars, both of us would cover the cost of minor repairs too. I then went plus dropped of a thank you card for the worker to supply to our buddy once the repair call was complete. The people I was with and I wanted him to suppose that it was a gift from us but both of us knew he would never accept it if he knew ahead of time.
