    ".....All Talk and NO Action. Looking for demotivated, slacker who whines constantly, never returns phone calls, thinks they know it all and Simply wants to get paid 2x everyone else and has zero experience. If you've broken previous employers equipment because your brain is not engaged and most people call you a tool bag behind your back -Then we want to hire you. We'd prefer that you have two or three other gigs that would also interfere with any ability you might have to actually do any type of work......"

    ARE PEOPLE FREAKEN KIDDING ME!!! I can't tell you how many think snow plowing is an instant get rich job option with no effort involved. They think they should get paid top dollar but, can't back it up. HEY, I've got a bright new shiny truck and can plow 100k sq feet in 20 minutes, my A--.

    I'm looking for someone motivated, reliable, working phone, working equipment, can shovel a bit and can back up their talk. We can be flexible with schedules.

    St. Charles, West Chicago, Wayne, Bartlet, Carol Stream, Commercial and Residential. PM me if interested aside from myself I can probably hook the right people up with additional hours with two other outfits in the same area.

    ( Whew part rant part posting :D )

    We had a possible shovel guy show up on a bicycle after saying he had a truck to drive, turns out his driver's license was suspended. How bout this one, "can you pay me cash, I don't want to pay taxes."

    Hello Scott,
    I am a (no joke) hard working guy looking to help you out in any way I can. I do have a truck (ford f150) but no plow on front. However, I do have a valid drivers license and very good driving record. I dont mind shoveling and working hard. I have 4 kids and need the second income very bad right now. Please e-mail me anytime if interested and I will give my cell #.
    Thank you for your consideration,
    Ed Price

    I live in Aurora, have a F250 SD 4x4 , 7.5 plow. But I am a newb at plowing with a truck. Not really a newb, but it has been many many years and I am learning all over again. Would like to help ya out, but I want to get used to plowing again and get better at it before I put myself out there in everyones way!!!! When I do think I am ready, all I can do is plow with my truck, not allowed to shovel due to my disability. But I still wish ya the best of luck! wesport

    Darn glad they let us use these computers here in Joliet State Prison, oh and I can get as many license plates as you need!! I will be out on good behavior soooon. I would have been out sooner, but I swear I didn't shank that guy! :eek:
