    So what if he enjoys it? The next driver is gonna do the same damn thing because there is no where else to put the snow. I laughed at the video, and I believe he shouldn't have been fired for plowing the cars in. Taking the video while driving? Maybe, but since when can someone be fired for enjoying their job?

    where is the thread that was started yesterday on this topic? looks like the mods took it down? i don't understand why? there was a good dialogue with points being made on each side - some in support, some against... everyone was civil. i guess difference of opinion is no longer tolerated here? oh well.....

    but then again i can't understand why half the threads taken down are removed in the first place?

    this one will likely be gone soon too...

    Since plow trucks and driveways were invented,snow will be pushed back into the driveway.

    The problem is he represents a company that isn't his own, then like an idiot, went public with his episodes. So, there in lies the problem. Sure have we all had a moment where were like "that dude isn't getting out till spring" with a little chuckle, but this guy went way to far. He was showing off, bragging, and not at all acting like a professional. C-ya-lata-Kehd........

    Exactly. And this idiot took his guilty little pleasure public because he just couldn't help himself. Now he is reaping exactly what he sowed...

    The fact is there was a parking ban in effect and those cars shouldn't have been there to begin with. How is he supposed to do his job and not plow the cars in. It's not like he's going out of his way to plow people in, it's incidental to doing his job. I know that the Public Works guys in my town love watching mailboxes get crushed and go flying when they're plowing...so should we fire them all?

    I'm surprised at how many people have come out in defense of that d-bag. "He's just doing his job...", "He enjoyed his job, what's so bad about that?". How about doing your job while not acting like an idiot?

    Not one of us could go up to our customers and talk to them the way he did. I'm glad he got fired.

    :laughing: Exactly!

    I thought he would get in trouble. I still laugh every time I watch the video. Poor Dogg.

    You have entirely missed the point..... This is solely about professionalism or rather lack thereof. And zero to do about a mythical parking ban in his specific area.

    He may be an idiot but the fact is he was doing his job as instructed with no reports of any damages. Now that hes fired he can stay home eat bon bons and collect welfare.......all for doing his job.

    The parking ban isn't a mith...would like a copy of it? It's readily available. If they violate a parking ban they deserve to get plowed in!!!! Maybe it will teach them a lesson. His language needs some cleaning up though.

    I stopped at my rental yard yesterday as I was passing by and was talking to the manager. He was telling me that a local contractor was using one of their loaders to push back piles for a town and residents were giving the guy all kinds of grief and threatening him for dumping snow on their lawns. So they'd rather have piles blocking sight lines than some snow on their lawn, which by the way isn't really their lawn, it's town property adjoining the road. I've had people throw their shovels at me for refusing to service their driveways. The bottom line is that most people are self-centered a-holes and have no idea what it takes to keep the roads open and show little to no appreciation for those he bust their butts doing so...all they do is whine and moan...it's all me, me, me.

    he didnt go out of his way to plow anyone in...they were collateral damage from him doing his job..there was a parking ban in effect so i guess the car owners have to reap what they sow as well.

    as a matter of fact there was a thread here not to long ago about a guy in CT going out of his way to plow a car in, and by in i mean front sides and back because someone left there car in a place he didnt think it should be and nearly everyone who posted said he was right for doing it,,what makes this guy any differant ?????

    These days if you get caught on camera doing something that people are strongly opinionated against your in trouble one way or another. Yes it was his job. He made it public with the video. His boss caught wind of it and even if he was right I'm sure his boss had to answer to someone else and it wasn't morally correct and someone had to pay the price.

    I agree, I used to get people complaining while I was shelving the roads, dirty looks the whole nine. Watching the video I'd have to say he's a pretty good driver and there was no need for terminating him, repremand yes, termination no.
