I truly believe that everyone has as angle when they offer to do you a "favor". I look over their shoulder so I can spot the fucking that is later headed my way. I have been screwed in this "hobby" by everyone and my asshole is so sore I can barely take a shit anymore.

Does this make me paranoid?

ive drivin 3 hours back to the shop to get a part for a buddy, never ask'd for gas or anything.

buddy of mine broke his g froce on a sat night at the track and had a match race on sun, i went home pulled my tranny out my car drove back to the track and was up till 5am getting car bac k togeather.

the only thing i expect is help me if i need it, and i wont ask for it i just hope they are smart enough

I agree,I help people cause that's who I am.Not because then they owe me.

You might want to think about changing the people you associate with!

There is nothing wrong with repaying a favor, in fact it shows respect for the other person. But I don't expect it I just hope they have my back when I need it.Maybe you need to find new friends. Sounds like you got leeches instead.

I am the kind of guy that if a friend is at my house and sees a part in my garage that I am not using and remarks, "Man! I should could use that" I just give it to them. I fix their computers for free. I am the guy EVERYONE calls when it won't boot. Need a video card? Here. Need a power supply? here. No charge, I had a spare. But when I need help on my car all I get is excuses why they can't come over or last minute cancellations. I guess you guys are right. I need new friends.

Ok then, it might be its just the car you need to get rid of! They clearly don't want to work on THAT POS!

Theres always an angle... either having a favor in the bank, holding it over someone's head or even just feeling like that person will speak highly of you. Maybe not horrible things, but they are things.

Yep, always an angle.

For me it's usually simple, when I do help someone it's based on the idea of "pay it forward" and that makes me feel good because I believe in that concept. Others have helped me in the past and present so I am merely trying to repay the debt that will always be mine to pay back.

Favors always works best when you do it without expectations of anything else. If you felt like you were burned afterwards, than you didn't do a genuine favor.

Note - If there's money involved than treat it like a transaction, not a favor.

I had friends like that too, they would only call if they needed something fixed. They would act like we were going to hang out, and then its "think you could check out why my brakes are soft, or why my lights dont work" and thats fine, thats what friends are for. My beef is that somehow it becomes MY problem. One "friend" always would say that he would shoot me some money, and never would. Or say he'd come over and help with my junk, and never ever has lol. I spent a whole weekend getting his junk to pass a safty, for nothing, no beers, no weed no money. It became to much when the fucking parking brake was sticking, and it was 8pm, and he wanted me to put new ones in, for free of course, so he could get it saftied tomorrow morning. I was working in the morning and I was not staying up late working on his fucking car. So I said I'm sorry but you have to get it fixed by a shop or something, and he acted like I owed him, and it was my fault he would have to spend the coin to get it done if he wanted it fixed tomorrow. Ungrateful dick, I did 2 inner tierods, drove him around to get tires put on, drove him to the wreckers, fixed the trunk seal, fixed the leaking axle seal(with my own part) changed the oil, for free and I am the dick. I dont fix cars for free anymore, I will help, but I am not a fucking mechanic, and deffentally not one that works for free.

I have friends that help me, and I help them, and it works out great. My one buddy doesnt even have a car, or know anything about cars and he helps all the time. So when his brothers car wouldnt start I was over there at 10pm, becuase he helped me with many things over the years.
