I started going around today to get people signed up for this seasons services and to drop off any remaning bills for snow removal. Well I stoped at my last house for the night, a really friendly lady that has always been a good customer, and she greets me at the door. I give her the bill for the last snow removal (20.00) and i explain to her the contract system. She agrees to it before i even get done explaing the whole thing and writes me a check for the snow removal. She hands it to me and it is for $220.00. 20for snow removal and 200 deposit on the season. So i guess i kinda lied b/c it isnt really a gift but it will sure help offset some of these start up cost.
