    Cars (usually taxis) that sneek up on you when you are doing a lot.

    People not calling back, signing contracts till the last minute before the snow hits the ground.

    Well, let's see...Here's a few..lol. The cars that do sneak up behind you on a run...drives me up the wall, Seeing other plowers plow snow into the street...So unprofessional !, Seeing a sloppy job, Seeing a vehicle that is in no way shape or form to be plowing snow, The lonely car that is parked smack dead center of the lot,

    Not so much the cars but the 3' posts. The same dark brown ones that you stuck an orange stake next to, wrapping both with flourescent tape because you knew it was in a bad spot. Unfortunately the same post that some one stole your brand new stake from removing the flagging tape as well; for who knows what reason. The same one that beat the snot out of your rear bumper which in turn left a large crease in the corner panel. Anyone have a used bumper for an 04 2500HD they want to get rid of?

    employees that call in sick when its time to plow because they have a hangover or are still too drunk from the night before.

    If they don't remove them before we arrive, they get plowed! When we show up, they come running out the store to collect them. This is at an A&P...

    Cars that park right in my path when piling snow! Then they get pissed cause they have to move their car. Also when they park right in or next to my windrow! They see me, they know I'm plowing, but yet they still park so I have to go around. Then I get complaints that there are boogers on the lot!!!:realmad: :realmad:



    Oh yea... I love shopping carts! They're a blast to hit around the lot! Clearly stated in contracts, not responsible for damaged shopping carts.
