    So the other day I was asked to do a bid for a lawn and spring clean up, well the grandma was babysitting the kids, so I finish checkjg out the lot (prior to this the homeowner asked me to bid it) so he grandma comes out, and I intorduce myself, and she asks how much for snowplowing. It was a 2 car width 60' drive and then another 50' for a car port without the roof, I tell her 35$ and she asks "a month?" I tried my best and held my laughter in, and explained he trigger to her and how that jeeps your drive clear for 24 hours and then if another storm comes the next day, hats another 35$ and she said "well that's 70$, that's way to much and also said you could get a brand new snowblower for cheaper than that, but I got the job for lawn care, and just gave the sited my card and left.

    'cause that phone plan is $35/mth. If you take the job you'll break even.:laughing:

    Talk to the homeowner not the grandmother. Get the summer work do a good job and you'll get the winter work.

    You need grammar check too. But don't feel bad, you're not alone around here.
