Buy one of these lights and put in on your truck. Ask for payment in advance:

I thought it was about Brian Leetch bugging you all day at work for being a Penguins fan.

Sad to say, your original act of kindness puts the burden of being honest squarely on your plate. Be honest. Tell them the free ride will end on Friday and Monday they need to take the bus.

I offered to take some guys to the park after work(where they park for free) every now and then when they can not get a ride up the hill. Now they seem to take advantage and assume I can ride them up every day. It is starting to get kind of annoying. What is the best way of handling this with out being a jerk? Any type of help would be apriciated.

Seriously??? tell them it's not your job to cart their lazy asses from their free parking. Or, tell them they need to pay for a portion of YOUR parking pass. You shouldn't have to worry about being nice or hurting their feelings.

:thumb: I don't see what the issue is. You don't owe them a thing (not even a reason).

Yeah, I got ya. It's just funny on how one day they were stuck with no ride so I was nice enough to ask if they needed one one day. Then they asked once or twice again, then it eventually just became automatic that I was riding them every day. They are really nice people but it is just getting to the point where I feel I am being taken advantage of. I am going to tell them on Friday that I will be taking a different route home on Monday so I can get to the gym to meet my friends on time.

Are their legs broken? Why are they parking farther away from work than they are willing to walk?

Because they can park there for free and get someone to drive them.

Just say, "Hey guys, not sure how this happened, but I'm not a taxi service. You want to park for free, you can walk to your cars."

Or you could start charging them $1 per ride.

I would place actual leeches on all of the seats they use. Then when the go to get in and notice them you can say, "Oh sorry, I already have full car of leeches today!"
