That seems a little extreme ^
I think OP is entitled to be proud of themselves and their work. Not sure how we read that they're trying to be the "center of attention". This "working when you're off" stuff happens pretty much to everyone I know that works in any specialized area.... that isn't a paper pushing office job.
My mother is a prime example. She has been working in litigation for over 20 years and any time anyone needs a title transferred, a support order modified, a divorce settled, a DUI handled..... every Tom, Dick and Harry is ringing her phone for "advice". My uncle... a contractor. Broken dishwasher? Ceiling caved in? Pipe leak? Circuit breaker? Clogged flue? everyone and their mother is calling him for ..."a quickie fix". Free-loader culture is everywhere, OP you're not alone. It's especially difficult with family and close friends.... and spreads like a virus once something emergent happens to one of THEIR best friend... and THEIR brothers kid... and so on and so on.... then you're known as the "go-to" person. But you're NOT the go to person... the only thing you want to "go to" is BED!
I agree with another poster that said to work on your go-to lines. "Thats really outside the scope of my practice, I recommend you call Ms. xxx" or whatever.
I do hear ya on this:
Isn't it odd how Lawyers are over priced sheisters, cops are out of control jerks, nurses are lazy and over paid, contractors are liars and crooks...... UUUUUUNNNNNTTIL:
They get a parking ticket...or an infection....or a broken window.... and want someone to help them for free...
