Lincoln man posts 'will shovel for cheap' ad on Craigslist

If you're dreading the cleanup once the snow hits, you may be in luck. A Lincoln man has posted an ad on Craigslist offering cheap snow removal.

John Augustine has perfected the art of shoveling snow and decided to put it to good use. Just one man, one shovel and possibly a half-foot of snow.

"I'm kind of just a little bit bored out of my mind," Augustine said.

The 27-year-old posted an ad on Craigslist Wednesday: "Big Snow Coming, I'll Dig You Out." And he's doing it for cheap - $5, $10 or $20 depending on the job. Seniors get a 50% discount. Even some of his customers think the deal is too good to be true.

"The first woman I talked to is like charge more next time. You're low balling yourself," Augustine said.

But he wants to keep prices low because he knows some people in his neighborhood don't have a lot of money. So he's stock piling his fridge and getting ready for a feast on Thursday. Come Friday morning, Augustine says stay warm and let the young buck use his back while it's fresh and strong.

"Until my backs broke, I'll probably keep scooping snow for whoever wants it done," Augustine said.

If you're interested in Augustine's services, you can contact him at (402) 910-4343. To view his Craigslist ad, click here: http://lincoln.craigslist.org/hss/3629411577.html
