    and why people think most are morons. :rolleyes:

    After talking to the warehouse foreman and agreeing where trucks would unload I clean a spot for them. I also use the space to back up in to push toward the end.

    Then the moron in a rental truck parks on top of my piles and in front of where I was pushing!!! :realmad: :realmad:

    Do a huge mini shopping mall at rush hour to keep drives clean. Or better yet do a damn gas station at anytime. Then you will know what pissed off is. :)

    Yep, you can have 90% of the lot done and some ahole will park in the snow which is a longer walk than if they parked on clean pavement:dizzy::gunsfiring:

    Not only was it a longer walk he also had to clomp through the snow piles. I am almost positive he did it on purpose and tried to get a chuckle inside like he was a big man or something. I am also sure he was corrected of his thinking since I had talked to the foreman not 30 mins before hand. The DB would not even look at me when he got out of his truck and I was sitting right there.

    i almost pulled a lumber delivery guy out of his truck today after he parked right in the middle of the road and refused to move. I got out of my truck and yelled some mighty colorful words at this guy. don't 'f with me when I'm behind because of truck problems. I gave the contractor a piece of my mind too when he heard the commotion. because he started the whole traffic tie-up in the process by blocking half the driveway i was plowing.

    Yeah you may be the first to experience my road/lot rage 1st hand. :jester:
    In my younger days I may have got out of the truck and yelled but now I think of the customer and realize you just can't fix stupid. :alien:


    Something learned and these days parents protect the reality of the world from their kids while the kids learn it from shows like Jersey Shore or whatever it is called. :rolleyes:

    Lately I dont even yell at people anymore...well ok I do but people like that get the treatment. When they think they are being a smartazz and go inside laughing I make sure to plow ALL around their sht. When they come out they arent laughing anymore and get the point. Funny as hell watching someone dig out their car. Ive done that a few times already this year. One guy parked there for the night as he lived across the street in a house and parked in a commercial backlot. He knew I was plowing as he saw me. Lets just say this dude probably didnt go anywhere until we got rain earlier this week :laughing:

    When i plowed commercially in a strip mall w a supermarket, best buy, bowling ally and a bunch of other stores i would just plow their car in (like a 24" pile all the way around their car), they needed a shovel to get INTO their car:D

    my route is now 7 gas stations and 3 restaurants...

    if i didn't self medicate i would have popped a .44 into someones face a long time ago...

    BTW....Reaper....that lot don't look very clean to me...what kind of POS plow did that work?...:p


    i tried t plow a few people in years ago....all i got was the call that i either came and cleaned it up or i got the bill from the tow truck....NOT GOOD...BAD idea...

    My favorite has always been gas stations and 24Hr. Super Wall-Marts, they have to be the worst. We have to put the plow trucks in the line waiting to get into and out of the parking lot, that is a funny site with plow down stop and go stop and go.
     
  18. I have seen a local company use their snow shovelers as parking guides....as the cars come into the mall parking lot they would direct them where to park....seems to work very well...two trucks, 2 burly men directing traffic...the idea hasn't been copyrighted or patented yet so feel free to use it. Thumbs Up

    whats also really nice is when you open up the fire lane at a strip mall for emergency vehicals and make it to the end and there are already 4 cars parked in the fire lane
