Charge whatever your conscience will bear. Those with a clean conscience will charge more those with a bad conscience will charge less. People think that they can buy favor with God, which is repugnant to him he wants obedience not sacrifice.

I'm not. But I will be soon. I need to go replace my belt tensioner pulley on my truck.
You non-butler guys are always doing something to keep your shit running. I know cuz I used to be a weekend warrior working on non-butler equipment. Constantly.

three preachers talking about how they divide up the offerings

two drew a large circle on the floor and threw the money up in the air .

One kept what landed inside the circle for his pay
the preacher at the other church took what landed outside

third preacher said,

"I just throw it up in the air, and whatever God doesn't take, falls to the floor as my pay"

I have done homeless & women's shelters for free, but my church I charge full freight.
I figure if they can have a staff of 80+ full time employees and pay a head pastor $300,000 a year then they can pay me. They even have someone on staff to call and ask where I was on Sunday. I have told her I work some Sundays but I think she thinks I'm home sleeping, and sometimes she is right.

I used to work with a brother doing a local Kingdom Hall. He was an elder and would donate his time and equipment as a gift. When I say he was an elder, I mean in more ways than one. He would pay me do the work with his equipment. He has passed on now but that was another experienced cleaner that I learned a lot from.

I hope you're able to hold on to him for a long time. Even if he flakes on you 6months from now, your body is enjoying the rest
I agree. Ok, I'm not bragging about this, because I feel we are all in the same boat here when it comes to pushing a wand around all day. I would proudly stand beside any of you and grind carpet all day. I can go for 10 hours pushing a wand. Go go go, I'm like a steam driven piston pumping wand plowing machine. It really didn't hit me how conditioned to the business i've become until I started teaching this newb how to wand.

So he's been watching me for the last week and says "Hey, I can do that. I see what you're doing and it isn't that hard."

Ok, I'll let you try it. I gave him the wand with some basic instructions. I told him to only work on technique and not speed. The speed will come after the technique is mastered. I explained slow is better than splash and dash. I handed him the wand and within one wet pass he starts sweating profusely and complaining his arms are on fire. His grip was so tight he was wearing himself out. I told him to relax, breath with every push stroke (Like weight lifting) and slow down. He finished the dry passes and started a second run. After the second set, he was totally exhausted.

I told him he better not puss out on me after the first week of wanding. I warned him I was going to turn him into a machine that can wand for 10 hours a day. We cleaned 4 vacant houses ,rotating stick-time on the wand.

It was eye opening how much I've become conditioned to pushing the wand all day. I thought this 27 year old "Kid" was going to show me up. Not happening.

He is doing pretty well. He's learning the equipment and has a good eye for detail. I have no complaints with his rate of progression. At the end of the week i'm planning on giving him a $1 raise. I'll continue to increase his pay as he continues to progress.

I know this is probably nothing new for you multi truck/Employees guys. It was just eye opening for me to see.
