I've been helping my dad out by building a website for him and his side business. I told him he didn't need to pay me for it. Gods know I get tons of free medical care from him. I certainly don't feel like he needs to pay me for my professional services. It's all in the family, right?
Over the weekend I got a letter from him, and it included a check. The memo read "for website." The amount? $200.
So lets see, should I be insulted that he felt he had to pay me for helping him out, even though I told him I didn't want any money from him for it? Or should I be insulted because he paid me a fraction of what the work was worth? It's too damn funny.
