    Why do so many people wait until it starts snowing to try to find plow service last minute? Its Michigan. Its snowed here since the beginning of time. Were you in Hope's that global warming would change that this year?

    Then they don't understand why you can't service them cause you have a full route.

    What's even better is when they want it done cheaper since you are already making your money that theirs just "extra cash"

    I like the last minute ones. Helps replace the ones you lost to a cheaper bid. Also puts you in the mood to be helpful and less resentful.

    I find that the last minute driveways are usually a PITA to plow and deal with the owners .

    I have felt my whole life that dealing with anyone new is a PITA, but put on a face and make some money.

    I used to live in Grand Rapids and I used to do EXACTLY this.

    I am probably one of the people that called YOU to see if you could plow my driveway.

    I probably asked if you could do it for $15 as well.

    Do you remember me?

    Who knows. I'm mainly referring to the online neighborhood pages. Some of the people on there are clueless.
