The guy across the street (who is 84) came out with the same fifty dollar bill he tried to give me every time I snowblow his driveway (five years now). One day I'm going to take it just to see his reaction

agreed.

give the guy benefit of the doubt. Unless you live in 'da hood'. Then the guy would probably be using one of those weed eater powered snowthrowers, or a stolen Deere that's been repainted bright purple with auto-zone spinners and foglights or something.

My elderly neighbor tried to offer me money for cleaning her snow a couple times. I never took it, she then switched to offering me hot chocolate, which was great, nice way to warm back up so I always accepted it. Now I don't get anything, which is fine by me. I do 4 sidewalks and 3 driveways, including about 10' of the street in front of the houses so the mail lady can get through. It takes all of an hour maybe to do it all, no big deal.
