Well, what are friends for if you can't use 'em? :hmmmmmm: I don't have a good answer for you but is there ever any gold in the dirt they have you run? Oh, and by the way I have a bucket of dirt if you could... OK. Never mind.

After thinking about it I figure it's only human nature for people to expect their friends to do things for them and to reciprocate. I used to own an auto repair shop and when my friends had problems with their car they called me for help. I have a friend who is a plumber. When I needed a new water heater I called him. I have an airplane and have a friend who owns a remote fishing lodge. I fly supplies for him and my family and I stay free at his lodge. The one time you likely won't have any friends is when you need money. Wish I had a friend who owns a bank...

If you feel like your being taken advantage of. Why not find out what their speciality is and encroch on their free time? Or at least hang around their house and drink all their beer.
