I bought a bed in a town 50 miles away. I asked a friend (man #1) to pick up the bed and he offered to pay at the time of pickup. I am to pay him back when he brings the bed. In the meantime, another man I know (man #2) will be helping man #1. Man #1 and Man #2 are best friends. The bed is to be delivered tonight. Man #1 said he would like for us all to go out to a Mexican dinner. My question is this: What compensation do I pay them for their services? Am I to assume since Man #1 asked me to dinner, I am to pay because he delivered the bed? Or do I only pay for gas. What about Man #2. Since I did not know Man #2 would be involved, do I now compensate both of them?
