Friendly neighborhood, there. I'd have had about six people helping around here, with as many folks who went by or were watching on that clip. Then again, I probably wouldn't have been screaming at random passing cars. Maybe everyone just hates him I guess.

In Michigan, you always carry a shovel in your trunk.  But I think if he would have backed up further in the first place and quit stomping on the gas, he would have made it.  Losing your temper in snow never helps.  In Detroit, you learn to drive with two wheels in a rut and two wheels out.

I'm guessing it was AWD not 4WD.

It did a great job of putting power to both wheels.. not sure what the other two were doing though, but I'd guess both were spinning as well.
 
2014-08-12 10:14:44 AM  
Yeah.

a) He parked on the snowbank. He's jacked up, just needs to dig out under the SUV a little. It's no big deal unless he's stupid enough to not carry a little folding snow shovel in winter conditions.

b) He's using all seasons, not proper winters. Hint: the M&S on the tires stand for Mild and Sunny, not Mud and Snow. "All seasons" are just re-branded summers.

Just yesterday, here in Kingman Arizona, I went to pick up my six-year-old from school in the rain. As we were walking off school property, we had to pass a construction area, that used to be a dirt parking lot. In order to save himself 50 feet of walking, some lazy jackass with a Chevy crew-cab 4-wheel-drive pickup, drove up the drainage rut, and in trying to turn around, got himself wedged in between a mound of dirt, and a concrete bench.

We stopped and watched for about 10 minutes, as he knocked the brush-guard off the front of his truck, and destroyed the concrete bench with his rear bumper. I thought he was going to have a heart-attack, as he was cussing and jumping up and down just like this guy. I even considered helping push him out, but I might have damaged his "Impeach Obama" bumperstickers with my hands. Instead, we notified the Principal that school property was being damaged, and let him deal with it.

Just before my sister and I moved to Minnesota, she had new tires put on her Camaro in California. From then on, whenever the temperatures dropped below zero, all four tires would steadily leak. I don't know if it was the rubber compound, or if the aluminum rims were shrinking, but you couldn't keep air inside the tires, for more than a day. Oh, by the way, Camaros are not recommended for daily Minnesota snow driving. :)

I did want to add that I had MANY people black and white help push me out of deep snow over the years.  And I had wonderful neighbors of all races as well.  It was usually drug addicts and scrappers that were making the neighborhood bad.

This was an example of what happens when a stupid, angry idiot buys himself a 4wd vehicle and then thinks "all I need to do is gun it and I'll get out of anything!"

Nope. It doesn't work that way. All stomping on the gas does is wear down your tires and melt the snow so you're sitting atop a snow bank without any tire contact at all. You have to go slow. You have to rock it forward and back. It would also help to GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND KICK THE SNOW OUT OF YOUR WAY if you don't have a shovel.

Every year I see these dipshiats in big trucks, SUVs, and jeeps who think their 4wd is going to make them invulnerable. They're usually the guys I see in the ditches around here, because they stupidly believed that 4wd means you can go 70mph on a 45mph road during or after a blizzard.

And no... I don't always feel compelled to help these jackasses. Sometimes, they're just to shouty and angry to consider getting out of my vehicle for them. Calm the f down, dude, and maybe people will not be afraid to come give you a hand.

You hung in a lot longer than I did. It only took me being attacked at work twice (and having my apartment robbed once) to decide never to go back to that shiathole.

I agree here. The guy started out angry and cursing. This is not a man I want my kids to feel like they should approach with open arms. He doesn't want a hug and some help. He wants the expensive piece of shiat he bought to work the way HE thinks it should (gun it and the 4WD will magically get you out of anything). He's angry and taking it out on everyone else. This guy is not a friendly stranger you want your kids to feel charitable toward. This is an asshole who needs to get the fark out of your neighborhood before you let your kids go outside to play.

Sorry to hear that.  I grew up on the far east side, literally a block from Grosse Pointe City.  Was a great neighborhood when I was a kid, cops and firemen all over the place.  Even in later years, nice older people.  The scrappers came through in droves and stole everything that was and wasn't nailed down.  I was out of the house two weeks and they came in, ripped the sinks off the walls, tore apart the walls just to get to the plumbing.  The city never shut down the water like I asked them to, and there were gallons a minute pouring into the Michigan basement.  Was a nice little house when I left, now is it useless.  The squatters that moved into the empty houses were breaking in everywhere while people were at work.  It was ridiculous.  And trying to get a cop to show up for anything was a joke.  Such a shame.

I do work at Wayne State University though.  Having your own police force makes all the difference!  Lots of improvements every year in this area.  Thinks are looking good here but whole parts of the city look like a war zone.  Pathetic

Holy crap, use the floormats if you have no sand. Also, just gunning it isn't going to do anything but melt the snow into a slick surface you won't be able to get any traction on.

This.

I have a crappy RWD pickup with bald tires, and I would have been out of there in less hassle than he did with a nice new 4wd/awd.

Shovel.  Sand (or a salt or cat litter or even the frickin floormats).  Take it slow.  If it's moving in one direction, use that momentum to keep going out of the snowbank.  Easy peasy.

I was actually expecting the end of the powering out would result in him running out of control into the parked car just up the street.

Angry Man Stuck in Snow by poet145 - 137,654 views
Published on Feb 17, 2014

it's also not a Jeep.

But putting into 1 or L or whatever that particular vehicle has , and having decent tires would have made a big difference, even though it looks like soft sloppy snow.

Last winter, after 38 years of experience in Michigan, I accidentally found out why you should NEVER use cruise control on ice.  (Was not an icy day, leftover sheen from water main break)

Spun like a top!  Felt like the Tilt-A-Whirl!

It's clearly a Grand Cherokee. The hideous wheels alone give it away, not to mention the placement of the logo.

That said, it does have part time 4WD, but that's better for slick stuff anyway. There's no sense in having a "proper" 4x4 for winter driving unless you need to plow the road.

Not exactly.  Having been an idiot once and taking my summers out in 40F degree weather with a light coating of snow, I can tell you personally that summer tires are effectively made of Teflon sheets and get zero traction when you try to shed speed, especially as you near gas stations in any condition remotely resembling winter.  I'm pretty sure I took a few years off my life in that little exercise of idiocy.  Driving summers in winter is suicide, plain and simple.

All-seasons are somewhat manageable in the snow--you can actually stop in them in snow and ice eventually.  Still, if you live in a place that snows every year, buy winter tires and run them during the seasons where temps drop below 40.  If you have never driven snows, you'll be astounded by the traction you get once the white stuff starts to fly.
 
2014-08-12 03:14:22 PM  
The guy's mistake was not really in pulling out of that spot. It was pulling in.  He pulled in on top of the snow bank that was there, high-centering his vehicle.
 
2014-08-12 03:20:48 PM  
Clearly the guy is an idiot. You'd think someone would have given him a hand tho- if he wasn't acting like a deranged lunatic. But he didn't even need a shovel to get out of that five minutes faster if he looked behind the vehicle.

That's what I was thinking throughout the entire video.   Maybe if you spin your wheels more you'll get out.

This - I've been stuck like that before, except I have a front wheel drive coupe and not a 4wd jeep and thanks to the kindness of strangers I got unstuck.

This reminds me of one winter when I saw a pickup truck with massive tires and a huge lift job stuck in a parking lot.  It had only been partially plowed and he thought he could avoid traffic by going through the unplowed part of it.  I have to give him credit because he had a shovel with him and was willing to use it instead of just cursing and spinning his wheels.
 
2014-08-12 04:40:18 PM  
Yeah, my Wrangler would have pulled out of that in 2WD, no 4WD needed. Limited slip/locking differential makes all the difference. Oh, and not being an asshat.

Charles.
 
2014-08-12 04:53:00 PM  
Actual winter tires make a huge difference. My little Miata would push snow until it floated the front with winter tires. It was/is always funny to drive something like that in winter and everybody with big trucks and SUVs are just amazed you don't need something big to get around.

And there's a pretty big difference in true summer tires and all seasons. All seasons won't ever compare to winter tires in snow and ice just like they won't compare to performance summer tires on dry pavement. But with performance tires even a dusting of snow and I couldn't move on flat ground. All seasons make it drive able if your careful with light snow. Now that I'm in central tn I haven't had a problem with all seasons. You just need to work a little harder when winter tires made it easy.

I don't understand why he stayed on top of the snow mound.  You could see the ground behind the vehicle.  Why not reverse so all four tires are on the ground?
