Hell yeah I'd charge. Shit I charge my friends for everything. Need help moving? = $$$ Need a ride to the airport? = $$$ Need me to check on your cat while on vacation? = $$$ Need to borrow my tools/lawnmower? = $$$ Coming over to watch Football on my TV on Sunday? = $$$ Want a pour from a bottle(s) I didn't want to tackle alone? = $$$ My advice to the OP is to sign up for a Square account to make it easier for your friend to pay.
