For the last 3 weeks we have been helping some friends of ours with moving their restaurant. When they first planned the move it would only be closed for 3 days, it ended up being closed for 20. They were having real trouble with their staff being reliable and trustworthy.
We helped move out of the old space, we ended up being there for 14 hours. We have also helped almost everyday from the time we drop off X ’til 1 or 2 in the morning. During this time I have become a professional floor stainer, tile installer, and many other things. They also allowed me to use my design skills.
Aaron and I really enjoyed being able to help our friends. They were not close friends but now that they have seen that we are here for them when they need us and all the time we got to spend together I think we have made a great lasting relationship.
Here is my question for you….would you do it? We have had many people ask us if we are getting free food for a year, coffee drinks for life, etc? I reply “we enjoy helping our friends, why would we want anything in return.”
