I just got burned by an old lady for a bill. Her daughter, who I do work for called and asked if I if could take care of the snow on her drive and walkways. I don't own a plow, just a snowblower that I do a few residential driveways to break up the boredom and bring in a few bucks over the winter. I left her bill for $200. It was 8-12" of snow and ice that had been compacted down over a 3-4 day period. The job took me 3 hrs to do. I had to hand shovel the entire thing. She said that she almost passed out when she got the invoice out of the mailbox. She calls and says that she is not accustomed to paying that much for work. I told her to pay me what she thought was fair and to not call me for any future work. Chalk one up for experience. Any similar stories out there.
