    Cashing in on your mates...

    Scampy's thread about wanting to charge his mates for a home movie of them got me thinking,

    in what ways have you cashed in on your mates...

    me?

    1. when i was about 12 we used to make up batches of home made sherbert and sell it to other mates (for about 20 cents a bag, if i recall correctly)

    2. but then one of my mates started undercutting my sales, so I ended up selling the recipe to all his customers for about $1 each.

    3. Me brother was much smarter tho, he used to stock up on water balloons and sell them on scout camps...

    wot have you done?!

    Bought ounce bags of legal highs smoking stuff and split it in two and sold it for twice the price I paid for one bag.
    Never lied what it was just told people I had a secret source of the best legal high. Fucking hippy shop in a nasty end of town that they were all scared to go to.
    Paid five quid made 15 profit. Got away with it for about 6 months,

    If you could see the msn conversation I've just had with the volatile, aggressive madwoman then you would know that I wouldn't be too bothered about that right now. And all because I can't afford to send her 5,000 for her to go on holiday with her 'mates' - the same ones that told her about the joys of working in HK.

    Anyway - don't take offence at my comments, I'm not serious. Just because you enjoy a kiss and a cuddle with another man, doesn't mean you're gay.
    "I'm an outsider by choice, but not truly. It's the unpleasantness of the system that keeps me out. I'd rather be in, in a good system. That's where my discontent comes from: being forced to choose to stay outside.
    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    Why don't you 'cash in' and do it on pay per view?

    See, no fucking business sense these Indo-expats.

    I've done lots of work for my mates. I charge them the same as I would charge anyone else, just as they would me.

    I'm a mate, not a charity.

    ^^^ Mates are surely entitled to 'family and friend' discount. Always gotta knock off a bit of cash off I think.

    ^ Well one of the movies is an hour long, the other will be just over.

    I got THB 65,000 baht for a movie I did for an Aussie expats 4 day 40th birthday party - a thousand quid. They were extreemly happy with it and the price wasn't questioned.

    Obviously the budget of my ex colleagues won't be the same, so I am asking for a tenner, if that isn't discount enough I don't know what is.
