A lot of good points here.
My question is...if it took you 25 min to get there & ANOTHER 25 min to get home......was your effort even worth the cost of your time (50 min drive time) and gas money?

Doing work for friends unfortunately often plays out poorly as they feel they can take some advantages. Your time, your fuel, your mower tires...and maybe even your shoes all add up to a PITA situation where he got the better of you, imho. I basically steer clear of working for friends...and it works out better for our respective friendships in the long run.
