    Ok, do any of you guys charge a minimum rate. For example, do you charge a minimum time rate or price rate. Cause i have a friend that owns a computer store and he charges a minimum 30 mins of labor to fix anything, even if it takes him 5 mins to do it, he still charges the 30 mins of labor. Or do you say that you will only do a job for 20+. Right now I dont do any jobs for less than 20 dollars, for the simple fact that you have to caculate dive time, and gas, etc etc etc. So I was just wondering what yall go buy.

    every other service industry pretty much has minimum time just to show up ... if u look professional and act professional then we should be paid as such.
