I think the big difference between these is the reward you get:
flipping for yourself, you're rewarded by getting to eat a burger made just the way you like it.
flipping for strangers, after an hour or so you're rewarded by getting enough money to buy maybe 3 burgers for yourself. That's demeaning because it really isn't a good reward at all.
And flipping for friends rewards you by giving something back to the people you like and potentially by being able to show off.

A life well lived I say
Unless you can prove it scientifically.
Yeah the same could be said for internal combustion engines, electric engines, essentially every engine that converts fuel to motion.
