    Weekend before last I installed some side curtain airbags in a vehicle for an old friend. He called wanting to know what he owed me...I said nothing bro. I was going over on that side of town anyway and it took me a half hour and was easy. Gratis bro. He said I will buy you lunch your choice. Right on. Have done much business with him in the past made lots of money off him. He got the freebie.

    That being said "Arbeit macht frei" is BS. Nothing is free.

    Your case is different Jeff. After some long sustained business, sometimes throwing in something for free is a great way to keep up the customer relationship... but doing free work with "promise" of future work is complete BS bro...

    Maybe charging a cheap rate for services is even a bigger sin/mistake...

    Exactly, there is HUGE differences between building a business relationship, vs a predatory client killing a photographer by empty promises of more work and 'exposure'. Very often the next time these predators will hunt for a new gullible photographer. Right here in Clubsnap there is quite a number of account holders are doing these, some events companies, some moms who had been giving birth, some 'couples' from a neighbouring country (donno why always from that country, for political correctness cannot mention), they only login when they need to make free use of a photographer.
