Family-yes, elderly neighbours-yes, friends-maybe, others-nope
"Can anyone help with computer" asked lady in the village.
Yep. Quoted my hourly rate. She agreed.
3 hours later had not got near what she wanted done
due cleaning the junk she had on the system and little side-trips she sent me on.
She guilt tripped me down to half-price and I got out of there.
She then deleted 5 years worth of emails (she is self employed).
Said that she was "following my instructions". Was bollocks.
I took pity and undeleted them (not just out the trash).
She slipped me a tenner "for your little girl".
I had just saved her professional existence.
Last favour I did !
