    Ok guys you're gonna love this one. I used to plow a local veterans hall. Small lot 30-40 cars and some sidewalks. I am a member so I would throw in some free salting etc , but always kept my prices fair. well someone else got the job and I know the guy. So I said to the guy that I used to do the lot but I guess my price wasn't good enough for them. I quess they thought I'd do it for a few beers. Well he says that's what I'm doing it for!@@#$$wtf. :drinkup: I hope he likes to drink!!!:drinkup::drinkup::drinkup:

    We are all dying to know how he will pay for his outrageous NJ GL insurance premium. I bet they won't take beer!

    Beer money

    I figured out how much I would have charged for the last 4 storms and it would have been over $500-600. Now a case of beer around here goes for $18-20. So that would be 25-30 cases of beer!! Looks to be another storm next week Thumbs Up

    Think he has any?

    For that much beer I would do it.

    I do one on and off,when I was plowing, the bartender would give me a couple of roadies for while I was plowing there!

    Could you actually drink 25 cases of beer before it went bad ? Most beer has a shelf life, correct ? You would need help, I'm sure we could stop by and take care of that for you.

    To Judge--''Your Honor,my client and I have a handshake deal that basically says I get paid in beer,quantity unknown,basically,ummm,you know,I guess whenever I want to drink some.No,I don't carry any of that inn-surance stuff,that's for real plowers who get actual money,I can't offer or afford that--I get paid in beer.Mrs.Smith here is going to have to find someone else with deeper pockets than me for her slip and fall,again,I get paid in beer.Now----if Mrs. Smith likes beer,perhaps- - - - - - -''

    Do they give the guy beer before or after the job is done? If before, it could make for an interesting video...lol.

    Of course not. I was being sarcastic.
