    So this happened a couple weeks ago,so when we where finishing up are run's we did this home.so getting there we noticed the city cleaned around the fire hydrant.so i say to my buddy watch not to add snow where the city plowed,anyway i get out do the stairs and so while my buddy does the entrance and pushes it on her front lawn..then i notice the neighbor standing there ,so i said to myself "oh hes probably just interested in our stuff you know the kind that have nothing else to do and being nosey,anyway as we where leaving the guy shouts" you guys shouldnt put snow on the street" i said to him " where not putting on the street" you can clearly see none was on the street..then he says"well you guys always put the snow in the street" and was starting to be pist off...i look at him with a smile and left...

    and now im just wondering all you would said?? :dizzy: since alot have different opinions.

    thats what i say when some one makes me mad, i probaly would have done what you did. but i had a customer's neighbor come out and yell at me when i was finishing up a resi at bout 4:30 and said i was to loud. imo his yelling was louder than my truck. so later that day i talk to my customer, and he hates this guy. so later that week i checked the city ordiance, and snow plowers are exempt from the noise ordiance :laughing: so this guy ran into my client at little ceasers, and apparently this guy had gone through everything to try to prove i was at fault. ended up saying i have to be 5000$ imsured to do a 100' private drive :laughing: ...

    o btw this guy said he would call cops on me if i kept plowing:laughing:

    I'd ignore and keep driving. I'm sure he thinks every plow truck he sees is the same one and the behavior of one is attributed to the rest.

    had the same thing happen to me, but we almost got into a fist fight about it.

    i was clearing a drive from a customer who had gotten my # and wanted to sign a contract for the rest of winter... older couple...

    plowin drive, pushin snow across street that had not been plowed yet, pushin just onto the curb, because this particular town doesnt plow all the way to the curb.... guy standin in front of a house 2 doors down comes down and starts screaming at me not to put snow where he just shoveled... i was like u shoveled the street? apparently he shoveled 4 houses and the streets in front of them, out about 5 feet. comes up to my window pointin his finger in my face. i was realll close to gettin out and telling him what i thought.

    i usually dont push across the street, i know you guys are going to say it. however after this affair i immediately stopped at the police station because i was in a different town than my own where im not 100% about the ordinances. cops tell me, next time tell the guy to mind his own, and bother somebody else because that law doesnt exist.

    hasnt snowed here since then, or there would have been quite a nice pile waitin for him to shovel just to get his POS car out.

    :laughing: i second that!
    Or I think the guy owes you 5 minutes of time, bill him for being an idiot, don't waste a stamp, drop it in his mail box next storm, see what kind of response you get out of him, It could be worth the laugh and a new thread here for us all. :laughing:

    If you didnt put any snow in the street you have nothing to worry about. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    Ask him if you know him. When he says no, you say, "I must. I know your name. It's A$$hole!"

    I know here you aren't supposed to put any snow on the road,you are to keep it on the property you are plowing,and in the back roads no pushing it into the ditch as you can block them for spring run off.
