My parents are both in their 73s and are truly bored, however they have nothing to do but find projects to occupy their time, however my mother appreciates doing work on the household and my father does what she wants.
The issue is that they can’t physically do the work anymore, however so when my parents need a job done, it is up to one of their teenagers or they hire out; I try to do whatever they want when they want it.
I just don’t always have the time though. The other afternoon I missed out on a roofing project. I didn’t want to go up on their roof anyway, although I hated that they hired roofers. I found out that my father saw two shingles in the driveway, and he then decided the roof was going to shambles. My mother then got on the phone with the first roofing supplier she could find and hired them to redo the entire household roof. The roofing supplier then upsold them to do the garage roof as well. Did they need truly current roofs? No, they truly did not. I wasn’t too pleased that they got upsold on two current roofs. I am sure that they spent a fortune. I will say one thing positive, the work was really well done. The gray shingle roofs are gorgeous and put on the right way. It makes the household look current and it is watertight. My parents are super cheerful with it as well. I mean, it is their money. They should get to decide how to spend it.
