    I received a call for snowplowing and it was just the way he asked.
    Went like this.

    Do you plow snow in the winter?
    Of course I wanted to say, Sorry we only plow in the summer it's,too cold in the winter.:eek:

    Had to decline,to far but gave a number to another guy no sense passing up a lead.

    Unrelated matter, but response to "plowing in the summer...." Dive team at work was talking about the big ice chain saw having trouble before it was recently overhauled. I said that the ice should be much easier to cut this time of year anyway!

    I continue to find the question "What time do you start plowing?" quite comical. "Reports say the storm should start around 4am, but I start plowing at 3"

    I don't think I could have resisted telling him I was stealing their snow.

    I got a call the other day for plowing, nice old lady who said she needed someone to plow her driveway in the winter. Since she did specifically say winter, I couldn't resist saying that's the only time I do it.

    Ya, this story is a little off topic.

    Phone rings;
    {d}Daff mobile wash can I help you?
    {c}Yes, I was wondering if you made house calls?
    {d}Sure do, we wash lots of residential buildings.
    {c}Great, how much would it cost to spray off my mattress?
    {d}Pardon me.(This has to be a joke !!)
    {c}Well my cat fluffy seemed to have an accident on my mattress, was wondering if you could powerwash it!!
    {d}I think you should call a carpet cleaning company dear.
    {c}Thats the funny thing, i've already had a carpet cleaning company here to do the job. The man doing the work at the end of the job said" Thats as good as its going to get, if you want it cleaner you will have to call a power wash company"
    {d}a um duh:help: ( OK how to resond to this???)
    {c}Do you think I could let it soak in my pool.
    {d}Maybee you should call another carpet cleaning company?
    {c}OK, thanks for your help.

    The worst part of this coversation was I knew the little old lady on the line. At the dinner table my wife was busting a gut, before I told her the story.:gunsfiring:
