    Saw something stupid today!
    I was at an auction preview in Prospect, CT today and saw this BOZO leaving with his V-plow in the scoop position, this wasn't anyone from this site was it? Hope he doesn't drive around like that all the time, ifso he must be replacing front-end parts on a yearly basis! Not to mention all the other things about that which are just plain moronic!!! :eek:

    We had a guy drive his truck to the shop one night like that. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked out the door and saw that like that. I asked him, "Did you drive like that here?" He just said. "Well, yeah." This is one of these guys that does $20,000 a night in salt alone (no exageration). He will hire around 30 to 40 trucks to go out and plow for him on top of all his own trucks. I am told that he bids everything in site, lowballs all the plowingh just so he can get himself in the door for salt. He has some pretty big contracts that he has somehow been able to hold onto over the last few years, but there are SEVERAL that won't have him back for a second year. His mowing and maintenance operations are that of a bit "sub-standard", too.
