A tried and true method for sure! In the event this doesn't work and you are required to be a little more blatant, try this trick I picked up from a good friend of mine. The next time someone asks you to spend 4 hours fixing their computer and offers you $10.00 for your effort, open your wallet, thumb through any cash contained therein and boldly announce that you will be willing to pay them all of the cash you have on hand NOT to fix their computer as it will save the both of you time and frustration. I've had to resort to this maneuver on three occasions and it has worked quite well. Although I can't say for sure, I think it has something to do with making them think twice about how you value your time.
