I DO GIVE FREE RIDES SOMETIMES.
I CHARGE BY THE DISTANCE, MONEY IN ADVANCE.
I WON'T GIVE ANYONE A RIDE.
You!

We often want to be helpful. Suddenly you have a flux of friends and neighbors asking you for car rides, never offering gas money. Every time you give someone a ride, you are putting extra mileage on your vehicle. Even gas money won't pay to replace a worn auto part. free taxi service

    And they do the same for me. It's usually when there is a car at the mechanic. People help each other. I would not; however, allow myself to be taken advantage of by a freeloader.

    I'd do anyone a favor but if they started using me as a taxi and not offering any money for gas...the rides stop. I shouldn't have to ask...if they had any manners they'd offer.

    I don't blame you. You also have a point, they should offer gas money on their own.

    If I'm going somewhere and a friend wants to go there's no charge but if I take someone somewhere because they want to go there they pay for fuel.

    When I do, or we carpool somewhere, my friends usually offer to buy the gas since it's my car getting the wear and tear. Sometimes I accept, sometimes I don't --- depends on the situation!

    Too often some friends act as if you owe them a free car ride.

    They don't remain 'friends' very long with that attitude --- they become acquaintances.

    It depends,if it's a family member like my mom,brothers,or my grandparents no.If is a friend,sometimes aslong as is once in a while they need it,but if my friends want a ride all the time or frequently,then yes i'll charge them.By distance:)

    I don't drive yet, but I'd give a free ride if it was only a couple miles out of my way, or if they've helped me out a lot. But if they want to go all over the place I'm either telling them cough up or get out.

    Well I get suspicious of their motives, if it just so happens I am going their way everytime I go someplace.... Got one up the street,, He will wait untill I am backing out of my drive, run up with his gas can and ask me to take him by the gas station so he can get gas for his mower... He does this everytime he need gas for his mower... I got to where I told him, I am not going that way...
