jehovahs witness protection: lI didn't think it would be this soon before somebody defended the asshole.
You're actually proud of yourself for doing it too, aren't you?


I'll defend him as well.  Giggling about it was stupid.  Recording it was stupid.  Putting it on the web was stupid.  But he would have been doing his job precisely the same as had he not done the stupid things.  Where I live, being parked on a snow route would have got you ticketed as well as buried.

god people. the roads have to get plowed. someone has to do it. and if you park on the street, your car gets covered. don't want your plow guy to get his jollies off covering your car? park in a garage. don't have a garage? move to where there is less snow.

let the guy enjoy his job. its what he gets paid to do.

/well not anymore thanks to butthurt little snowflakes that complained.

Yeah the driver is a dumbass but as someone who has lived in a snowy climate, I feel no sympathy for the car owners who got buried.

[csb]

One of my friends was living in the condos at the top of the mountain next to the resort.  And a big storm rolled through and he didn't move his car.  Which happened to be parked in the area where the plows put all the snow. It gets buried both by the plow and the storm.  It wasn't seen again for 2-3 months. At some point in the spring the plows cleared behind it and there was the rear end of a squished lil Isuzu Imark sticking out from under 10 foot+ mountain of snow.  Both front and rear windshields were busted, suspension blasted, and the tires were flat. Never ran again. Once it melted all he could do was get it towed to the junk yard.

The city should have used this as a PSA to get people to move their cars during snow emergencies. "Move your farking car or we'll plow that farker in".

He should have just not plowed the road?  Here you get towed, have to pay cash at impound, and wait in line with 100 other idiots who didn't move their damn cars.

I really can't find the outrage.  The only thing he did wrong was make himself identifiable when he posted it on youtube.
If I was a plow driver I'd probably laugh at least a little at all the cars I was being paid to bury.

Personally, I don't think he's in the wrong. shiat, where I live, your ass will get ticketed and towed post haste if you're parked on the street during a major snow storm.

/and yeah, when you've been up for 20+ hours straight, you don't tend to think clearly
//why they didn't get him off his route for rest earlier is the fault of the Lowell Road Department

lack of warmth: but he has residents that will call the DPW to complain that an ambulance can't get down their road just to get their road plowed right then.  No ambulance was ever dispatched.


I guarantee this is exactly how it happened.

yeah, town employees should only take slight pleasure in screwing the local citizens, when they film it and post it to youtube. otherwise they might get fired!

seriously, if you're a town employee and you make a video about how much you love messing with the people in the town, what do you expect?

His anti-social behavior has earned him the attention of people that want to pay him money to be on a reality television show.

And they say gay marriage and marijuana are ruining this country.

His job was to plow the roads and that's what he was doing. Blame the assholes that ignored a snow emergency, leaving their vehicles on the road.

Sounds like a lot of lost sleep caused him to find things silly funny, why is anyone surprised.  He really didn't do anything wrong, for it really is part of their job.  When we have a really bad snow fall that requires me shoveling the full length of my driveway, I clear the shoulder in front of my yard.  It solves two problems: first the snow clears off the plow before my driveway and doesn't rebury it, second guarantees usps can reach my mailbox.  However, if everyone wants to be whiney about it, I guess fire a guy for doing his job and having sleep deprivation.

A buddy of mine works for a DPW, and shared some of his plowing stories.  One story was how residents were told NOT to put Christmas trees to road, but one day plowing he noticed a tree on the road and couldn't stop to do anything about it, the tree was launched into the yard standing up like it was planted.  He is the type of guy who knows his residence well enough to make sure roads with elderly will get plowed early, but he has residents that will call the DPW to complain that an ambulance can't get down their road just to get their road plowed right then.  No ambulance was ever dispatched.  Don't complain about your local taxes when you pull crap like that.  He works for one of the nicer parts of MI, and sees some crazy DPW hate.

Here they tow your shiat and in order to get your car back you better not owe the city any driving related fines
