I know what you mean! Although my friends don't take advantage exactly...

It's really the perfect storm. I usually budget too little time for a given project, I'm too nice/generous with my friends as far as helping them out, and I'm not respectful enough of my own time.

But hey, long drawn out projects with friends strengthen friendships and are always exciting!
