Not quite in the same boat as you, but yeah I feel you're pain. We're only allowed to see our grandchildren when the boy and his wife need something.
One daughter moved back after her divorce and is still there, the other daughter had a friend that needed a place to live so we took her in but said daughter is up in NY working a Renfaire and basically being a vagabond.

Baby wipes, had the same issue when I was active duty, and at the end of day wiping my back down with baby wipes seemed to help the “prickly heat” as we called it.

I feel what your going through, it's going to be hard no matter what. Take things slow.

I have two daughters and I told them both no matter what, they always have a place here at home. I think if I had a son, things would be different.

Labor, you got a bargain.

Had one of my guys did it, your bill would have been more; but, it would have been done differently.

410A $50.00
Leak Search $40.00
Recovery and evacuation $50.00
Welding Charge $40.00
Drier $40.00
Coil cleaner $10.00
Labor $400.00

My repairs total more; however, we would have found the leak and fixed it. This is a tried and true industry accepted method. The “super seal” has SIGNIFICANTLY mixed reviews, with most older technicians HATING it. I hope it works in your system.

at the end of the day he put in refrigerant and leak sealant and used my hose to spray out the unit.

he was actually the company owner. nice guy - we had a lot in common.

the worst part is i dont think he really knew how long he was there. at best from pulling in to my driveway to pulling out was almost 2hrs. when he was writing out the bill he said "im not sure how long i was here but ill only charge you for 2hrs because we bs'd a lot." we literally talked at least 45 minutes.

next time i wont talk to any tradesmen.

I have a service contract with the company I use. $200 something a year for both heat/ac. Covers labor and a discount on parts. They just serviced the ac a couple weeks ago....Freon was low, replaced the fill fitting, ( I think ) recharged, cleaned....Cost me $78.
With the heater...It cost me a power switch 5 years ago. Had the nozzles replaced a couple times, the igniter, and I think the pump over the years at no cost. I ask for the same tech every time...He takes care of me.
The unit is 18 years old, so it's been worth it for me.

1st car in OKC. Pics, carfax and conversation with sales guy were great. Make the 2hr drive. He gets the rouge.
I laugh at him
He looks confused
I call him a few choice words because what was a perfect rouge in the pics actually looked like it was parked in the middle of a Top Golf driving range.

2nd car in Mesquite tx. 2.5 hrs away. Same thing. Everything was perfect. Even got videos of the car inside and out. It was a done deal. I was going to buy it. Guy said let him know when I hit a certain spot (50 min from dealership)This will give him time to have it washed. It was already detailed on inside and out just need the dust cleaned off. 40 min to the mark he texted and said it sold but he had more but they cost more. Needless to say I was beyond pissed. Made the exit, pulled through the lot, had second thoughts of how much the bail would be and left Trophy Nissan.

Thank god for my wife. She was quick to search and found another Rouge literally around the corner. All hopes were shot but we were there and made the stop. I needed to roam a lot anyways. She went in and met with the sales guy and brought him out. Mind you I was in a horrible mood. This kid made my day right off the bat. No pressure what so ever from him. He tossed me the key and said to take it for a spin and he would wait for me to come back. Well as you can see we brought it home. Made me a great deal on a better rouge than I had originally wanted.
From the way I understand it, you're supposed to take it back to the dealership and sign some paperwork before you take it home.. that kid's probably still waitin and I'm guessing fairly pissed...

Sorry to hear that Gummah.
Rediculous how people who want to be productive members of society can’t while others are happy to sit on their azz and get a free check.
