The neighbor wanted to clean my car again today

He wants to do it like every 2 weeks. Cars don't need to be detailed every 2 weeks. That's like a 2 time a year thing. It is cheap for him to do it--$30 (though I give him $40) but it is annoying for me to have to go to the local ATM and then pay an extra $2.50 b/c it isn't my bank's ATM. I wasn't in the mood to deal with it today so I told him to come back next week. Again it doesn't need to be cleaned so soon but I consider it goodwill to give him the money. He obviously needs it.

I am a Doctor of Psychology, but I'm thinking of heading to local parking lots and cleaning folks' headlights for $30 a pop. I have some really good cleaner from the Dollar Tree. And some nice clean rags too. I am NOT an "essential worker." Nor is my stock broker. Sigh.

Ah, Well, I think, This guy is stretching the " goodwill " just a bit And may be taking advantage of your kind nature just a bit. He must know a car only needs detailed twice a year. I wonder how many other people feel a bit sorry for him like you do.!! It's good money, no wonder he needs it?
