    I don't know if this has been posted before. I found it on College Humor. I'm 26 years old and probably would have done this in my day. But as a Municipal Snow Plow Driver, I would have got out of my truck and beat the SH*T out of them!

    I don't know....It was pretty funny to watch. I don't think throwing the snowballs at the truck itself is right, but its a funny joke to build the snowmen in the road.

    Yes it may have been fun to build the snowmen in the road, but get upset, and immature, start throwing snowballs at the plow operators? there parents should probably take them out of college, and throw them back into gr.1. :angry:
    Because some people have a job to do, and thats clearing the roads for others?
    im 16 and the furthest i would go would probably build those in the road. just to see them get taken down.:redbounce

    did you not see at the end of the video the first operator getting out of his truck, and having snowballs thrown at him? obviously not. how would you feel if your trying to do your job, and someone decides to be IMMATURE and stupid just because you ruined theyre "fun" i think this post was to be a funny post but people being immature is one of my biggest pet peeves. no pun intended, sorry to rant.

    A good packed snowball is dangerous. We seen that on TV where down in Washington DC they were filming a bunch having a snowball fight. Innocent ya but I betcha there were a few trips down to Emerg in that area where people accidently got someone in the face. tymusic

    i grew up in the sticks, so as kids we didn't get to hang out in front of stores being nuisances,

    in the winter we would build some huge forts,escape tunnels and all but that was when we got big snow and only a couple walters to clean up,

    we would make snoballs for hours, then we would pick out our targets, we were after the buses, and the cops, back then it was in good fun,

    i remember we hit a guys car he must of been in his twenties and he was a badass,, we didn't hit it because we knew he would kick our ass, it was a kid that just happened to show up drunk,

    ya know that taste in your mouth when your hiding and your scared shitless, we were all quiet laying down as the car pulled away, but the guy never got back in, i sensed something was wrong and as i start to say be quiet the drunk kid gets up and yells, thats all ya got,

    i grabbed my bro and just laid there while everyone else booked it, the cops were always the best, they were cool about it becuase they knew where we lived, we met one daywhen we were building a fort, there was a mentally handicapped kid, there and he was asking questions,

    why how where, questions looking back you could expect from him, he was repettitive though, just as a cop is driving by my buddy says we do it for this and hits the cop, hard too lightsd come on and then he yells run,

    we stand there nad he runs, the dudes running like forrest gump, he is about a 1/2 mile in a field really working thru the snow,

    the cop comes to us and we just point out to the field, that was a funny night there, the cop was even laughing

    I had someone out yelling at me at 2am once because when I plowed the road, the snow would go in his yard and he felt he was getting all the snow. After a couple minutes of listening to him I tucked it in gear and took off. His boy threw a snow ball into the cab and it splatted off the passenger window. I called the cops before I went back threw.

    you know if it was my truck there would be a problem I paid a lot of cash for my stuff and if some kid hit it there will be words or more.
    I don't wash and wax the truck all the time for someone to do this, let me toss a snow ball at there nice car and see what happens.. oh wait they don't have the cash for a car only a video camera :laughing:

    You know would the driver of a city truck be in trouble if he comes back to the yard with dents on the truck if he didn't report what happened??????

    you know a little kid that's okay but someone older that has been packing a snow ball for a while is like a rock

    last week in CT some kids hit a truck with some snow balls and now they have a court date.

    Just a couple of thoughts on this.......

    As a taxpayer in the town where I live and trust me being in NY I pay my share. Those kids are not only throwing snowballs at government property which the taxpayer paid for they are also slowing down the job at hand, costing time which equates to money.

    Secondly let's all face the fact that should one of those idiots get hurt, there would be a law suit faster than those trucks could get back to the shop.

    JMO I think it's juvenile and if thats the only thing they have to do in the middle of the snow storm maybe they should concentrate on shoveling the sidewalks on the campus instead.

    Thats a lot different then throwing a snowball at a large plow truck. AND if you're going to throw a snow ball expect to get hit back, so a trip the the ER over getting hit in the face is your own fault if you want to play along.......what are you going to do ban snowball fights? hahaaa

    They hardly slowed down those trucks. And yeah there would be a lawsuit BUT IT SHOULD get shot down, but because of how f*ck*ed up this country is they would prob win millions.

    See everyone is SCARED of a LAWSUIT so in turn they make LAWS to keep you from doing ANYTHING so that when you go to SUE you LOOSE. If the judicial system had SOME common sense they wouldn't need to keep adding more and more LAWS over STUPID LITTLE things and just throw out atleast 1/2 the lawsuits.

    i thought it was really funny actually quite original to do that... but i would have been grabbing gears trying to throw the snowballs as far as possible and made a game of it myself... its his own fault for getting out of the truck keep driving its only snow get a life, what has the world come to when we should arrest people for throwing snowballs, its getting rediculous no one got hurt and the guy just has to put on his windsheild wipers and wow crisis averted JMO though
