    Yeah, I'm sure he didn't "see" it.

    Probably he complained to the parking lot's owners over and over and they never did anything about it. Maybe they told them to do what he wants with it, because it wasn't theirs nor did it belong on their property.

    As funny as that is, thats called taking things a little too far. Piling snow around it is one thing, shoving it across a parking lot and up into a pile is another!

    Note the lack of license plates (Ontario has front plates)... probably no one knew who owned it and it was assumed to be abandoned... two months without moving will do that.

    Yet our stupid Canadian laws will probably side with the guy.

    I'm betting there was no insurance on the car either.

    Its too bad people don't park more stratigically when it snows, very few people actually use a little common sense and try to park in a place where they won't be in the way. I have to give them the benefit of the doubt though, unless you have done it before, most people know little about plowing and don't think about it nearly enough to change their routines.

    Personally I like the ones that even though the parking lot is empty and they have their choice of spots, they insist on parking in front of the snow piling area...

    or they park in the only section you havent plowed. :dizzy: that one really pisses me off. there 3 other sections plowed, and this idiot in a escort parks in 6" of snow.
    but of course i havent been out since december 20th, so i guess i am alittle acny. heck, i only went out a total of 9 times for the whole seson.

    Yeah, or night staff right in front of the doors.... which of course they will be gone before they open but meanwhile how do you get rid of the snow from right in front of the entrance???

    I know what you mean, though I have been out more recently but probably not as many times total as you. I just sent out bills for both January and February together (bc Jan was so pathetic by itself)... 2 plows of most of the route, and a handfull of saltings.

    Totalled $4400 for everything since New Years :( This is supposed to be my busy time of year! :dizzy:
