I was wondering if anyone else ever got strange requests like this one. A business owner of a placement agency recently moved into a building where he is the sole occupant, so he is now responsible for grounds maintenance. It was a bank building with a single "teller" lane on one side and 3,400 sq ft parking lot on the second side. Other two sides are streets. He’s asked me to submit a bid for snow plowing. BUT - he only wants it plowed if it "really needs it". Then he only wants me to plow half of the lot. He’ll do the other half. We didn’t get into how we’d divide the lot into halves. Doesn’t want any ice melting material and he’ll do the sidewalks. All this is to save money so that tells you what "really needs it" means. This guy is a lawyer who’s wife is rich. He owns the placement agency for something to do. A grounds maint co offered to take care of his bushes for $50/mo. He thought that was too much so he has the employees pull weeds from them. I’ve told him that I won’t be submitting any bid and won’t respond if he calls after October 1st - my route should be set up be then.
