    This business wants me to bid the snowplowing this year (no big deal).Get this if I was to get this place I might have to get out the truck and shovel!:eek: This would be a first for me in 20 years of plowing so we'll see what happens.

    Thanks what I thought. Does anyone have a picture of this thing called a "shovel"?

    Here's another thread on the subject from a couple years ago. On the first page, note my post and the replies of "Sirsweatsalot" (you can figure out what was deleted) and "yzal". I don't get slammed a lot on PlowSite, but yzal did a pretty good job of it.

    this year a select few will be dropped because of it.... last year i got the ol {well seeing that there wasnt alot of snow can you shovel a path around the house for me?) HUH NO!!! did you need to get around back for something? no- but you didnt plow much!!! or the old can you shovel a path to the garden shed. WELL, MRS. SO&SO did you need to get anything out of it? i can get it for you.. oh never mind its ok!!! .wtf... i usually shovel for the elderly only, you never know it they need a ride the white bus in the middle of the night, then when you dont do it for them or it doesnt snow over 4 inches they expect you to do more...... ive done this for many years and last year after it snowed it took me a few days to get over the back pain... this year... im thinking of myself and not others as much!!!

    I've got 2 small accounts that expect shoveling. I'm going to be short handed this year so I am seriously considering dumping them. I hate to because that is how I built this business was by "never saying NO". That would be my wifes quote when she's mad at me about snow removal. Both accounts are very tight quartered and rough on the equiptment. I guess that I will decide when I send out letters and contracts.
