RE:fake friends trying to get free work
Many times, friends and family.
Design stuff for mates various extensions, turn it round quick, but getting them to fix a dent in your car or help with your plumbing, nah, we have to wait and get charged for it.
After many years of doing things for 'Friends' and getting nothing in return, we now have a solid rule, 'NOTHING FOR FREE.....EVER'. There are a few exceptions to the rule, but not many.
