My Husband and I are trying to make a little extra money for the holidays. We will put up your interior as well as exterior Christmas decorations. All we are charging $15.00 per hour. That is only $7.50 per person. We also charge a small fee for gas.

Don't want much do you? That is more per hour than my job that I have been on for 16 years. Housekeepers only charge 10.00 per hour, thanks but no thanks, I will do them myself.

@Dang...Whats the problem with trying to make some extra money for Christmas? I'm glad to see someone offering this service. What could it take? 3-4 hours? people pay that every week to get their yard mowed. If you've worked 16 years at the same job and are making less than $7.50 per hour. Wow,I feel for you. Maybe you should get off your butt and put up Christmas decorations for some extra money so your family can actually have a nice holiday this year.

It's 2 people you idiot. It husband and wife. Here let me break it down for you. It is 15 per hour for 2 people. If we are there 1 hour that's only 15dollars which is 7.50 per person for an hour of our time. Get your facts straight before you comment! Learn how to read and comprehend!

Dang you my non-friend need to pay attention. First the lady was offering to provide a service by 2 individuals for the rate mentioned. If you have been at a job for 16 years and make less than $15 hourly your nasty hateful a$$ is getting what you DESERVE. This thread did not apply to you if you didn't want or need the service. IDIOT!!!

Now get off topix and do some work and maybe you'll get a raise SCROOGE!!!

Dang,
What kind of work do you do? 16 years is a long time to give an employer to be getting less than the $15 an hour (TOTAL) mentioned. Any yearly/quarterly bonus or anything?

Personally I hope you find plenty of work for the season. I would also run an add for a couple of weeks in the paper or trading post if you can and maybe the corkboards at the grocery stores just to get a little more info out. Advertising is the key but work such as this it's hard to tell where to throw the money for the best return.

Anyway good luck. Merry CHRISTmas

I agree with Dang....they will drag it out and try to rip people off. I would never pay 15.00 a hour for someone to decorate. Ridiculous.

First off its not your page second off I'm effn sick of seeing this damn public post you have posted it in Lebanon Honaker richlands and here that I've seen so far and you have yet to get one person to hire you!! Your pitiful, if you truly do seek to make legit extra cash take up a extra job!! This time of year is perfect if you are looking, stores and other services hire extra temp workers around the holidays!! But get it through your head not your page its public!!

Tis the season to be pissy falalalala-lala-la-laaa.

I honestly don't see a scam here. Since there are people that need help all through the year I really don't see this as being an attempt to "rip off" anyone. She has offered a service and given the hourly rate up front. Seems childish to me that people would be so hateful to someone trying to work when there's so many out there that won't hit a lick.

Who cares who owns the thread?? You people sound like a bunch of school yard brats crying about a swing set. Amazed at the childish BS!! Some of you all need to just grow up.

I see someone is keeping up with me. If you wanted decorations y didn't you say so? An it's not a scam . People don't see the true meaning of Christmas. No one else offers to put up decorations. A lot of elderly people would like to decorate but are not able to. And as far as the price goes... How long does it take to put up decorations. 2 hours tops? Not trying to rip people off just trying to make a good Christmas for my daughter. And as far as the job goes. I do the beat I can with what I have. I can't afford a babysitter or I would work along with my husband. not everyone's mommy and daddy hand them everything in life. Some have to work for what thy got!
