    so I'm at shop since 8:00pm yesterday getting ready for the " big snow". it finally quits snowing at 5:00pm today so I stop at home for a quick shower and change. start shoveling my walk and a guy in a blazer stops and says I"ll do your walk and drive for $5. I told him put me on the schedule and do it every 1".

    I"m not putting my boots on for $5. + the wife won't wine about being the last on my long list. WTF he wants to work for free god bless him.

    LOL...Wait till he pulls in and sees one (or more) of your trucks sitting there with a blade on it big enough to swallow up his Blazer.:D Gee, too bad he DIDN'T have insurance...You could set him loose on a nice tight route and make a killing!payup:drinkup:

    so does he send you a bill every time he does it. $5.00 - 42 cents for a stamp, that means hes only making $ 4.58,for that price i would just slap a invoice on the door. :D
    did you ask him how much$$ for a seasonal rate? :drinkup:

    if he's plowing that cheap, it might be worth it for you to pay for his insurance if he works for you for the season for $20/hr :D

    I long did it take him to do your driveway. Must have been 10-15 minutes?

    Walk $5
    Driveway $5
    Finding your wife in bed with some guy and a white blazer parked in the driveway

    PRICELESS.

    Nice. Sounds like a prime canidate for a sidewalk crew. $10 an hour to start.
