I think it’s been pretty well covered here. It all depends on the situation. We all have certain people in our lives for whom we are happy to do most anything they ask of us. Then there are always those who abuse a relationship because they are cheap and/or lazy.

When confronted with a request I really don’t want to take on, I just tell the truth: “This is my hobby and I make things I feel like making for the fun of it. What you are asking me to make sounds too much like a job, and I already have one of those.”
