My mother preferred a space oil furnace over using the control unit.
When my mother decided to transport in with us, my wife rushed to get a new control unit for her room & have it affixed.
She was sure that she wouldn’t be able to read the numbers on the dial of the old control unit, & she wanted her to have a new digital control unit with giant numbers.
She barely had the control units told when Dad moved in; John explained to her how the control unit worked, & showed her exactly how to use it. When I took my Dad shopping, I was surprised to see that she was purchasing a space oil furnace for her room, she told myself and others she preferred to use the space oil furnace over the control unit. When I asked her why she said she couldn’t see the numbers on the control unit. I looked at the control unit & showed her the button that would light up the dial so that everything would be suitable for her. That’s when she told myself and others that she couldn’t see green & black. I was so frustrated with her, that I took her portable space heater, plugged it in & told my wife to unattach the control unit. When mama overheard myself and others telling John to transport the control unit, she became irate. She told myself and others I was consistently the first one to jump the gun & act abruptly. I told her I wasn’t acting abruptly, I was doing what she told myself and others to do. I hooked up her space heater, & now I was getting rid of the control unit that she didn’t love our buying & installing for her. She didn’t talk to myself and others for almost a week.
