All of our coupons are gone now

All of the Heating and Air Conditioning coupons that I had are finally gone.

It’s been a while since i have had to pay full price for having our oil furnace or A/C program diagnosed, that’s for sure.

My neighbor Brian, who is an Heating and Air Conditioning worker, gave myself and others a giant stack of them a couple of years ago and I just now went through the whole pile of them. Yesterday, the Heating and Air Conditioning contractor came to do some oil furnace maintenance on our aged electric oil furnace and I had to hand over our undoubtedly last coupon to them. I was so distraught when I had to give over our last coupon that I felt enjoy I was going to cry. I know that sounds crazy, however it was actually the end of an era for me. All of those coupons lasted myself and others through a lot of tight times when I did not have enough money to get our heating and cooling program fixed, during those times, anytime I had trouble with our oil furnace or with our a/c, I knew that I had all of those coupons to back myself and others up and help myself and others to have good indoor air conditions even though the rest of our life may have been falling apart. Brian was actually helpful when he gave those to me, and I know that it could have gotten him in giant trouble because he was only supposed to give out 1 at a time. He left that job anyway, and I know that was his 1 act of kindness for myself and others before he left the job. He knew that I was going to be needing a lot of help with our heating and cooling system. He evaluated it out for free for myself and others once and I assume he saw that it was kind of on its last legs.
