Sometimes things go wrong that are not under your control.
Other times things go wrong when you are trying to take control, plus never should have tried.
I have done this many times. My latest blunder was when I tried to service the oil furnace. My partner was freezing, our son was complaining, plus they were aggravated that the Heating plus A/C worker was there yet. It had only been an hour since I called for oil furnace service. They said it would take about more than one hours, so I couldn’t figure out why they were aggravated. I promised our partner that if they weren’t there within more than one hours, I was going to see if I couldn’t service the oil furnace. In the meantime, I headed out to the shed to bring up a couple wheelbarrow full of wood. I was going to get the fireplace laboring to keep us warm. I laid the kindling plus the logs on the hearth plus I lit the paper underneath. I could see the flame plus then I felt the smoke. I hadn’t changed the flue to let the smoke out. I must have put the damper in every position possible, even though I still had smoke coming into the house. Now all of us had the fans going on a freezing night, plus the air vents in both bathrooms, hoping to pull the smoke out of the house. I never did get to work on the oil furnace, since I was busy trying to not suffocate us while keeping us warm with the fireplace. When the Heating plus A/C tech finally arrived, I had the fireplace laboring respectfully plus our partner plus son weren’t complaining any longer.
