Most of us these days work in computers and even if we don’t entirely have an online job like we are just working in an office, still you can hardly find one that is not using computers in his work. This is why, once the computer bugs down, downtimes can hardly be avoided. If it will happen to you, you should not try to fix it yourself especially if you don’t really have knowledge in it and you have not even tried doing it. What will you do? Where will you start? Instead of just minor problems, you might just augment it and chances are you will end up damaging your computer even more so that it will be hard for a pro to retrieve your files. There are so many online businessess already that provide computer repairs and even if you have a friend that is a pro, you should pay him and will not have your computer fixed for free. Here are some of the best reasons why:
– If this person is a friend or a relative and not yet a pro or even if he is already a pro, then you should hire him officially and not ask him to repair your computer for free. You see, if you will ask his service for free and there will be a time when your computer will have the same problem in the future, you might end up resenting him assuming that he did not do well because of the fact that you did not pay. Your relationship will surely be at stake. Thus you should respect him and hire him officially. If he is not a pro, then the more that you should not ask him for this problem. Avail the service of IT consultants.
– Even if he might indeed successfully fix your computer, he might resent you silently for stepping into him. You see, if you will ask a pro to provide free service for you, it would be like you are not respecting his time. Note that he might have other customers and this is his livelihood. You also have your own job so why don’t you acknowledge his profession and pay him!
– Once your computer will be fixed, you might assume that he can do it again without being sensitive to his time. You might feel awkward as well telling him next time that your computer is damaged again. You see, there is really no good asking a service for free.
– Another reason is you might just be careless with your computer knowing that one can fix it for free for you. Most of the time, free things are not that valued.
If you have your own work, then you should not ask one to do some services for you without paying. Unless he is a sibling and you are still living in the same house, then that might do. But still even then, he might consider it burdensome.
