    Don't have the patients or tolerance to deal with retail, too many stupid people out there that don't have a clue of what's going on around them.

    This is exactly why I hate plowing commercial sites. I like doing driveways. Rarely does Joe Homeowner come out when its snowing or at 2am when I'm there.

    At least he won't have to deal with any personal injury claims, the bodies will turn up in the spring with all the shopping carts.

    Saturday I was called to scrape down the grocery store lot I plow.

    Got there at 1:00 in the afternoon - supposed to be the slow time during the day. People and cars everywhere!

    Hard enough to do with my skid - can't imagine trying to get around with a big loader! :gunsfiring:

    No worse then plowing streets with people shoveling, walking, running, cars and what ever else you can come up with. I hated plowing like that with even stupider people who think you are in their way.
