Never do favours for friends

Going to plaster a room for a friend tomorrow as they are trying to push the job on. Got there to find that there is 3 plasterers coming tomorrow and I’m in the most awkward shity room I’ve ever seen. Why did I do it to myself

Job for a friend. Stairwell, scaffold needed. Told him no one else can work on the stairs that day as need a clear run. Got there to a spark second fixing on the stairs with the plumber back and forth through the scaffold fitting rads. Phoned 'friend', no answer, on beach in Spain. Constant battle. Constant.

Be polite and walk off site. Done it a few times 50% of the time lose the job but would have prefered not to do it anyway.
