    I gave a bid on a 25 unit town home and just got called this evening to tell me I got it. Kind of put me in a tough spot if we get some snow tonight.

    I on the other hand got a call today from the guy i was going to sub for on 6 commercial accounts.
    He called to tell me that he gave the accounts to someone else. Its a bummer because i held
    back on the marketing for my own accounts, cause i didnt want to bite off more than i can chew. I have 9 resi's, but i would've had more if he didnt tell me
    i could sub for him on those accounts. Its all good tho. I'll take it as a learning exp.
