We have a tractor. DH has always since we got it five years ago plowed out all of our neighbors. He never asked for a dime and rarely received more than cakes and cookies. Last winter we had back to back storms that were worse than what we have this time. And DH was laid off. Usually when people would offer him money he would say no, but last winter he said yes. He told one guy that he was laid off and would appreciate some money for fuel. The guy was real friendly about it and then gave him $100! Way more than DH expected but the guy acknowledged he would have owed way more for all of the previous plowing. So most people gave him some money ranging from the $100 to $5. Then he found out that the one person called everyone else and told them that DH was Charging $100 per plow out! He's not charging anything! So he just keeps plowing. So this one woman stops him one day and tells him that last year he damaged her trees by piling too much snow too close to the bases of them and would he not do that again. He shrugged and moved on and kept plowing her out. 3 feet of snow has to be put some where! Today she left a note in our mailbox saying she didn't like the way he plowed this last time either!! It was ice - hello! It was a miserable plow job the snow was very heavy and icy and she was blaming him for the fact that her garage door was frozen shut! I am tempted to tell him to just tell her to hire some one and drive right past her drive. His feelings are actually hurt. Keep plowing her out or blow her off?
