    lol read the bottom part. It's the best part!!!!

    "-If you have work done a .50 [cent] fee is added; to cover all cell phone costs."

    LOL who would want to pay someone to talk on the phone when they're supposed to be shoveling?

    "Corners add $5-$10 dependant on size at our discretion"

    LOL, guess he find it hard to turn the shovel. I dunno.

    lol, i love how a 10x40 driveway is $20 up to 14", holy crap! I didnt like snowblowing them at $40-50 a few years ago

    and thats sweet $8 bucks to get your whole walkway shoveled out upto 6"!

    Are they gonna measure everyones place that stops them mid storm, wait for cash, of course wont state the obvious but its funny. I think we should have to pay state or federal snow plow contractors fees for a license each year so they can let these guys keep going without a business or insurance lol.

    So much good stuff in there. My favorite is "Are you Old?"

    Base rate $3.00
    Ice Surcharge $1.50
    Cell Phone Charge $0.50
    Corner $10.00
    150 lbs CC $150.00

    That will be $165.00 please, can you make that out to cash.

    Ramair, dont forget we are in NJ. That would be just like all the others. $100 / yr. No one enforces it, and someone somewhere gets a paycheck for 200K, but cant even tell you where their office is.

    I am embarrassed that my first name is Dave also. I think I may have to change it!

    sounds like Dave is gonna have a sore back this winter and probably not make enough money to cover the hospital bills/pain meds. I wish I could get away with throwing extra clauses in every estimate. Sounds like he could charge an extra .50 cents just because its done on a tuesday!
