$15/hour - chauffeur's hourly wages
Just thought this would be good information to know, considering the amount of time I've spent in the car this week shuttling children hither and thither! Just on the off-chance that I begin charging for my services......
Actually, I HAVE instituted a new policy around here to "pay" for my chauffeur time. Here's how it works: If I spend an hour of my time driving Social Child to go see a movie, then Social Child "owes" me an hour of their time, say to watch their younger siblings or make dinner or some such service. These rates only apply when the driving serves no other purpose than to satisfy the recreational desires of Social Child. So, if I drive SC to, say, work; no charge. If I drive SC to flute lessons, no charge. If I drive SC to go swimming with friend, full-charge!
I'm thinking this system will work out quite well :-)
