I know we have discussed this before, and many of you think it is best to not work for friends and their sprinkler system. And I partially agree on that. When I do actually work for friends, I usually don't charge them. Here is what I have been doing lately. Since they usually try to insist on paying me, I ask them to instead make a donation to a local charitable organization - local food bank, animal humane society, Red Cross, etc. Maybe they can reimburse for parts at cost, then make a donation for my labor. Just something we've been doing recently, but will continue with it going forward. Might be something a few of you could think about if you get asked by friends as well.
