    Sometimes I wonder if people have any common sense anymore. This was from a storm we had a couple weeks ago. I had close to 300 spaces of the 400 cleared and was about to come and make a pass through these spots and this guy pulled into it in front of me. Then another guy parked right next to him right as I was making a clean up pass (He pretty much cut me off.) These particular spaces are unassigned and so they could have parked in any of the other cleared ones. Luckily it was only a small snowfall.

    Happens every time without fail. :realmad: Oh well, done venting.

    I am sure we have all been there and done that. I use to give them a little extra next to the door if they continued to be stupid time after time.

    I've had a few times where they parked in front of where we were piling and was very tempted to just push them in. 'Funny, I thought I was parked right here...'

    That's happened to me before. They usually get an ear full to stay the least.

    Stuff like this doesn't bother me anymore for some reason. I think my give a damn is broken. I get paid to plow snow. If cars are parked in the parking lot, just go around them. I just consider them another obstacle, just like a light post or an island. It's all part of the process.

    They can never all park together. That would make things easy.

    If you watch them pull in, why not just honk and point to where they should go? Thats what i do

    I wish that would work. I've chewed them out, had emails sent out, pointed, used cones. Five years into this property and I just kinda put up with it.

    Like dodge said, just part of the process.

    You can honk all you want, they will just wave at you and keep on being stupid.

    Is that even a space? People like their favorite spot and don't give it up for any reason. Come snow or high water.

    What drives me nuts are ones watch you clean and soon clean spots next to them and you leave. They come out and move there car over to clean spot This happens to me a lot in my big complex

    Happens a lot, but that is pretty obvious where to NOT park.. idiots.. some of our guys have just decided to plow all the snow up against their car so they need to shovel to move... that has happened before more than once. they learn quickly.
