I think it's partly because there are a lot more guys doing family IT, so even if the percent of them who charge isn't high, it may be more than the number of women doing that, me, I get insulted when family offers money for my time (which happened).BabyFaceLee said:
Why is it that (mostly) guys often think they should receive some sort of payment for what they do for friends/family?

Recently i sold my grandmother my old desktop. reformatted fresh with xp cause its the only workin os i had layin around.. 2 days later she calls me saying she forgot her password, and i couldnt log into the admin account to do net user, so i had to reinstall again.. the next morning, she calls me saying she once again, forgot her password... which is why i set it to 123456 that time.
I couldn't agree with you more. The traditional male-female relationshiip in marriage is uncomfortably similar to prostitution anyway. Why does the best sex always come after the purchase of a new dishwasher?Why is it that (mostly) guys often think they should receive some sort of payment for what they do for friends/family? Most women (me included) do stuff for guys all the time, including IT support/help I might add, and would never dream of asking for payment and would not accept any if it were offered.
