This is not in direct response to anyone in particular at the moment, but I feel it needs to be said.

I own a late model Ford Ranger. It gets marginal fuel mileage, but it runs well and does all the hauling I frequently need to do. Many people I know own compacts or vehicles not suited for moving anything more than a couple of people or the groceries home from the store.

The point of contention here is that I am that friend with the truck. And frankly I'm sick of it. Sick of it!

While I appreciate your eye on economy in your vehicular choice, it does not make me subject to be your personal moving man when you need something large moved.

So often I'm told, yes /told/, that I need to help someone move something or go get X with them and my truck. Usually to be put in the position of dealing with their schedule, getting marginal compensation for fuel, and being required to be the muscle to load and move said large object. KNOCK IT OFF!!

From henceforth, if anyone, ANYONE, wants something moved, yes I am still available to help you, however, I rightfully expect adequate compensation for my time, as well as my fuel and wear and tear.

I think it is total bull shit to demand I help someone move based on friendship. Where is the reciprocity? I have a house I'm remodeling, yet no one helps me with it.

In short, if you want something moved, you either need to respect my time and not be a cheap ass over compensating my efforts and equipment, or haul your ass down to enterprise and rent your own truck, cause I'm done being treated like an on demand moving man.
