    You sure it's an ex-plower? Maybe someone who is mad at you could of done it. I know I asked one kid what vehicle he is going to drive when he gets his license, and he said "why, are you going to slash my tire?". So I think, teenagers would do that kind of thing, if they are dumb enough. Glad I'm not that dumb. It's a bad thing to do. I would do it to someone if they are a big jerk though.

    Problem is an ex-plower of a place you plow then. Probably mad that you do the place now.

    I've seen that happen before. One guy gets mad about another guy taking his current/old accounts and slashes tires or puts sand in the pumps. :rolleyes:

    I dont think slashing tires is ever exceptable, i dont care if you did take someones account. Tires are expensive and so are pumps so if someone takes you accounts just work that much harder to get that account back the next year.

    Were there any other reported slashings in the area that night. One year in our parking lot several vehicles were done, all trucks with one geo, in order to cover up who was doing it. It was a disgruntled boyfriend of the geo's owner. Sounds possible about the plowing contract though, and I don't look at it as you took the job from him. The business owners gave the contract to you instead of him.

    I remember getting 2 tires slashed on my car abotu 10 years ago.

    it wasnt so much as the tires as it was wondering who had something against me and wasnt man enough to tell me to my face

    Hell you think thats bad, all you have to do is buy new tires. I lost 5 lug nuts on one tire (which was all of them) and almost lost 3 on a different tire saturday. I think they were out to do more then a little bit of damage. What do you think could have happened to them??
