I would have an seriously boiling and uncomfortable house, that’s for sure
I am incredibly fortunate to have good parents. My university roommate came from a broken home and was completely financially independent of both parents by the age of 19. I remember helping him with tax forms to get him financial aid from the university after he could no longer use his parents’ financial information for FAFSA and university admissions. This was obviously stressful for him from our standpoint, but I actually can’t imagine how bad that must have felt from his perspective. He has actually no safety net if he fails in life and needs an emergency loan to keep his vehicle on the road or his rent paid. I was much more privileged in this regard. My parents are really not wealthy, but they have enough in savings where I could ask for a loan if I actually needed it for a serious reason. That’s how I am able to use our a/c again after it broke last week. I made the mistake of neglecting our a/c filter swings and let the filter sit inside the component for more than five months without decreasing it. Needless to say, I had cracks in our evaporator coil and I needed a up-to-date 1 to have working cooling again in our house. If it weren’t for our passionate and gracious parents, I don’t guess what I would be doing right now. I would have an seriously boiling and uncomfortable house, that’s for sure. Now I need to make a better effort at saving so I have a safety net of our own to cushion myself and others if something ever happens that I don’t expect ahead of time.
