    I was recently approached by U. S. Maintenance, apparently they have the snow plowing contract for all of the Rite-Aid pharmacies in New Jersey. Just wondering if anyone has done any work with them, and if they pay. Thanks

    This is a pretty public forum.... and "bashing" anyone is frowned upon.... so, the rule here is - if you can't say anything nice about anyone (or any company), don't say anything at all...

    SIMA's forum is private and most members are much more wide open there, as any close knit community would be.

    That's about a blunt as we can make it.

    If you want more, email the poster from here directly (or via private message), and you might get more information.....

    or...

    Join SIMA.

    maybe all of you SIMA boys should stay at that site and all others will look here. I think it is foolish that you pressure a guy into joining SIMA to get an answer to his question. that is not what the forum is here for as i understand a forum to be.

    SIMA has it's professional advantage, but this is a public site. Private issues (such as is being discussed there) should not be aired here....

    FYI Mike

    Mike, I am not pressuring anyone to join. Nor am I trying to win the get a member contest.

    For your information, I have not nor will I enter the get a member contest at SIMA.

    I was merely trying to give an informative public answer to the question raised, without going into detail.

    as for my "I hope you got my private message" to the questioner, I had emailed him clips from the SIMA website that might answer his question.

    If I was pressuring him to join SIMA, I would have said Join SIMA or I will come to your house and rip off your upper lip!!!!!

    Besides, I have seen you tell people here to join SIMA on many occassions. What the hell makes you any better than me????:D :drinkup: :waving: :p

    Very few posts, didn't fill out the profile, and we should all move to another site...... and all we're doing is trying to follow the rules......


    hmmmmmm.......

    btw... I've been to Jeff's house for dinner (and a very good one at that)... if he wanted to rip off someones lip - he could easily accomplish this..... on most anyone :) :eek:

    john,
    i guess you are referring to me indirectly. I do have a few osts and never filled out a profile ....don't think it is necessary ...I read these forums to get helpful info , but when there is an issue I feel I need to address I just type it. I guess if I had a profile and a lot of repliesand was a member of SIMA , then that would be ok with you?

    Doesn't matter what I think.... I'm just a poster here.... just like you. Nice thing about a forum like this... we're all equals.

    You do what you think is right. I accept people as they are, not what I (or others) think they should be..... although I do think you missed the point of most of the posts contained in this thread..... just my opinion, for what it might be worth.

    Either way, I have no intention of breaking the reasonable rules that we are all asked to adhere to - as others herein have already tried to convey.

    Put up or shut up

    OK, Uniscape, your tone is becoming more snotty as we go along. Since you seem to have some manner of problem with what SMG (which, as an entity, has NO status here on this board)does, please expand on your accusations so we can all understand what the issue is.

    All I can see is that you are somehow taking shots at JAA as the head of SMG, which is totally irrelevant to anything happening in this thread.

    Technically, JAA is not the "head" of SIMA.

    John,
    I comend you for the way you handled the matter at hand....

    Uniscape,
    I promise that you have little to gain trying to insult Mr Allin. As one of the top persons in the buisiness he is well respected by many persons on this and other forums as well.

    I feel there is nothing more to gain as this topic is way off subject.
    It is getting to be a great big PISSING MATCH in my opinion and needs to be locked down by the moderators.

    Boy oh boy

    Boy, some of you plowMEN are really getting pissy to each other lately. What's the matter, too much overhead and not enough snow?

    I enjoy reading this forum, and the petty bickering takes away from the integrity of this site. Do you really think that manufactuers of snow equipment will take our comments seriously when you belittle and insult each other?

    I regard plowMEN as an honorable profession, America's road warriors, and all of you in that catagory. Do you know any other profession that grows strong while its members try to jam each other? If you want to be paid as a professional, act like it, otherwise, get into some other field where backbiting, ridicule and moodyness is the norm, like maybe lawyering.

    Say did you hear the one about the lawyer and the plowman...


    LOL, just kidding.......

    Be nice.
