    Call and talk to the guy. He may be a great worker. He may also be a bum just looking for a handout. Looks like he is at least trying to make ends meet.

    It is a little deceiving but looks like the blade guide to me. If it is rope maybe his last ad was:

    Need rope for plow. Will shovel for piece of rope and a cookie. :D

    Ugh... the Toronto Wasteful People Society's Garbage? There are soooooo many people there that are too lazy to do basic recycling...

    Did she come to you in the back of one of the trucks? :p

    OK we'll take her back but we want our clean fresh water back too... :jester: AND our Hydro-Electricity.... soo you can't blame us for anymore of your blackouts...! (especially when it was YOUR plant that failed, not ours!)

    She probably did come on one of those trucks. She stunk so bad they thought she'd fit right in with the rest of the trash in political office.

    plow

    What's the problem with Canada. tymusic If you feel threatened by this add then I don't know what kind of people you do business with. Any of my customers if they would see a add or flyer like like this especially with the kind of truck and plow he or she has no matter the price they would not want anything to do with this outfit. This is a good deal for the cherry pickers. I don't do business with people like that as an add like this would not get me worked up at all... Maybe you should move to Canada as there are no adds like this here. You'd be safe here....

    I know of a guy that works for food. Here ortonville,mi there is a guy that is plowing a little ceasers for hot n ready pizza's. We have given them quotes to do their lot ( we already service connected lots). It seems after every good size storm they are unhappy with the service they are getting in exchange of pizza. The manager told us this clown has a $500 credit at their little ceasers!!! Who the heck want's 100 day old pizzas. Now if they sold beer that would be a different story:drinkup: Oh well I just laugh every time I see their snow covered icy lot !!! Good Luck !!!!!

    Your taking this all out of context bud. Ready between the lines. All I'm saying is everyone here in Michigan are feeling the pinch and that she needs to go back to Canada where she came from.
