It's a brief and basic thing to count but it's saving us big bucks. My car's suspension is shot. It needs new struts and shocks. Diana's laptop totally fizzled out. A friend is helping Mr. Lime learn how to change the struts and shocks right now. He doesn't want anything more for his efforts than dinner tonight. Pretty cheap deal I'd say.
There is a patient at my office who is a tech guru. I merely asked him to recommend a reputable place to take Diana's computer. He said they are all competent but it pisses him off how much they charge people so he'd look at it for free. Not only did he look at it, he fixed it, for free. He absolutely refused any kind of offer for compensation. He says he fixes friends' computers for free. I wouldn't have dared to assume I merited that favor since I only know him as a patient at the office.
Both of these guys have saved us all sorts of money by very gladly offering their expertise. I'm very grateful.
