Not only did they have working gas furnaces, but they also had meals for us
There were numerous times as a child when my house had no working gas furnace. The reasons for our gas furnace not working were numerous. It mostly boiled down to us being poor plus lazy, then during the winter, the gas furnace caused our electric bills to skyrocket! My parents didn’t have tasks, so they would struggle to pay our electric bill. If they ever came up short, the power corporation would shut our electricity off, plus that would leave us with no gas furnace to keep us warm, and sometimes, the gas furnace would stop working, plus there was no way that the people I was with and I could afford to pay an HVAC specialist to maintenance our gas furnace, and regardless of the reason, I can remember countless times as a child kneeling in a freezing house with no gas furnace. Thankfully, during the times when the people I was with and I had no gas furnace, the people I was with and I had friends. There were people who enjoyed plus cared for us, plus they would allow us to stay at their house while the people I was with and I saved up the currency to get our gas furnace running again. After a few nights of staying in a freezing house, it was so nice to stay at a friends house where there was a working gas furnace. I was also thankful for public schooling, which was a constant source of comfort. Not only did they have working gas furnaces, but they also had meals for us. As an adult, I have vowed that I will never allow my family to be so poor that the people I was with and I can’t afford to use our gas furnace. I will labor as numerous tasks as I need to to make sure that my family is comfortable.
