Reasons why we do not fix computers for free

“Like most IT pros, we all  have had plenty of friends and family members ask me to fix their PCs. Although we as tech geeks have always tried to help people whenever I can, I have come to the realization that with a few exceptions it is a bad idea to fix people’s PCs for free. Don’t get the wrong idea, there are some people that I truly don’t mind helping. I would never refuse to help my girlfriend with a computer problem, nor would I cut off my mother. Unfortunately though, the majority of those that I have helped have abused the situation.” https://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/ten-reasons-not-to-fix-computers-for-free/
