    I thought you just raised your blade a little and drove away, spreading the snow down the road.

    Thank's GV..:waving:

    Across the ROAD !!!

    :angry:Also, please DO NOT push snow ACROSS the road. If you do not know how to plow, please sell your truck and find something else to do. THERE IS NO REASON TO PLOW ACROSS THE STREET. :angry:

    I've never had such a warming :realmad: experience. I guess if it happened to me I'd make a call to your client and let them know why the pile has grown and that there may come a point in which you can no longer service the account because of the excessive size of the pile and then no where else to stack.

    Looks like neige has nothing on you guys, he doesn't do any of that. Somebody better let Paul know his guys are really screwing it up.

    I had a guy do that also.

    One time we both were there at the same time.
    He had his snow at the end of the drive, all ready to go across the street.

    So when he pulls up to their garage to back drag it one more time. I took a load of snow pushed it across the street;) Hit his pile and pushed it up the drive behind him.

    He flips me off:realmad:. I just :D & :waving:.
    He gets out and walks over and gives me the WFT???

    I preceded to tell him my client charges $500 a year for snow storage.
    So, if you want to stack your snow there that you will need to pay. Until then keep your snow off of my clients property.
    See ya latter, and I drove away.

    My, my, so confrontational.

    I have a few customers on a private drive. Guy that plows the private drive would windrow the entire road to the side with my customers on it instead of splitting it up the middle. Even if I was finished plowing, then leave the windrow in the drives.

    Finally caught him one night and told him if he did it again I was going to have my sub with a loader and 18' pusher dump every snowflake from my customers' lots into his. Never happened again. :D :nod:
