    So I get a call Friday afternoon, This lady ask for me to come plow her driveway. She adds that her car is stuck in the way. Now, keep in mind it hasn't snowed in a ten days. So I figure she is a cabin owner and the warning alarms begin to sound in my head. I ask what the drive is like. She says its down hill a little bit and around a corner. Any way I tell this lady that it is gonna be a minimum of $75 to plow her drive maybe more given the circumstances. She says I'll let you know......probably got spooked by the price. Later she calls and asks if I'm still willing to do it. I say OK like a dumb***!:dizzy:

    I get to the job, and she has already got the Lexus SUV out of my way. I look and there is 4 courses of land scape that are bout 8 feet high! boy was she rite about the downhill part! Any way, I get the drive way cleaned up and she pays me the $75. Just as I was leaving this half million dallar lake home, her dumb husband stops me and says............Do you think you could go out on the lake and plow a skating rink? Keep in mind theres bout 2 feet of snow on top of 6 inches of ice! WHAT....damn idiots!:gunsfiring:

    Reading things here on Plowsite makes me feel better that people are ridiculous no matter WHERE you are!

    I posted something a couple weeks back about a guy who was looking to save money by not having me plow, but then he needed the mailbox cleared out so I went for 1/2 the cost of the driveway (2 days later, NOT when I was already out plowing). With lots of time to think about things during plowing for hours & hours, I decided what my response should be for people: "I bill out at $125/hr, so if you're ok with that I'll be over."
