Bike jobs you loathe

As a fairly experienced home mechanic who also does bike stuff for friends and family I'm wondering, what are the jobs you hate doing and always end up getting a mate to do/taking it to your LBS?

Being winter season (although it's 16 degrees today so I was out in full summer kit) I've done a few mudguard installs recently which I find quite therapeutic. I also like doing bar tape, as long as I get to choose what I'm wrapping. The only stuff that goes to my LBS is cutting fork steerers and chasing and facing, although that's more down to insurance and the tools being very expensive.
