How Do You Say No......

I bet that went over like a fart in church...
What are you saying?? I have farted in church and it felt good. Seriously though that is I why emphasize with my mother and others that I talk to is I am not the cheap person and I have a business that works for me how I run it. It isn’t the easiest thing in the world to tell someone know but it is necessary.

I thought maybe your mom gave you the look like mine would have if I farted in church...

As for plowing my mom would give me some story to make me feel guilty.

These situations happen often, your finishing up a driveway and out of the corner of my eye, i will see a neighbor walking over, i will just avoid eye contact and keep going,
Sorry 10 years ago i would, but now we have 4 plow truck a snowblower crew, 2 skidloaders and our routes are maxed out with over 100 acounts.
Just 2 days ago i was plowing a parking lot for the 4th day in a row being exhausted from drifting snow and a lady stops her car in the middle of the street with a smile and says do you plow? as im plowing i yell No! I felt bad, but i want to say to them, fail to plan plan to fail.

Was doing a tornado salter, remove from truck with blown trans and install in mason dump today, one of many plow trucks worked on today, anyway he calls me and says, I have a buddy, now you know it's going to be a stupid question. He wants to know if you can do a truck side install tonight. Soo I said I get $450.00, but it will be double. He no show up.
