    Hi Guys
    I plow 5 Burger Kings, and it seems to me that when I first start plowing there isn't alot of traffic. Get the lot half way plowed and there is a steady stream of cars coming into the lot. Is this just a freak of nature or does this happen to you guys as well. Then you get some dumb a33 just pull in and park were you are trying to plow. Makes me mad when they do that.:yow!:

    Regards Mike

    Its kinda like when you plow a fresh path & your commin up to the pushed pile of snow, then you go to back up & theres 4 cars behind your bumper! ...I know of a situation that happened with a loader, he backed up & CRUNCH! into one car!

    We do some 7 elevens and it never fails when we start everyone decides to stop in and grab that 1/2 gallon of milk or paper, and they want to park right in front of you when ya get lined to push. Maybe they are ********.

    Hit the nail on the head.
    Just had someone pull in front of me the other day and park right in my line. Just pushed up near their car and gave them a nice honk honk. They quicly moved to the 200x100 area that was already done.

    I have this same stuff happen to me. What I don't understand is why certain people are even doing out in some of these storms. Just the other day at the depot, I was plowing and had to wait for a old man to push a flat bed cart full of MULCH bags through 3 inches of snow. I sat there thinking, what in the world is he going to mulch in 3 inches of snow. I guess he couldn't wait one day to get his pretty mulch!:realmad:

    I tried that once. I blocked one entrance and left one open. Well, this created more problems. Some idiot decided to try to take his corolla over my 2 foot snow burm. Can you say teater totter! Now I have stuck car in my way.:realmad: Luckily, it was a young guy that didn't care and asked me to push his car with my plow. I got to say it was fun crushing his bumper in with my plow! IDIOTS!

    That is so true.
    I do this place and it has 4 entrances. So you push them in, straight and leave them in a pile and them push them 90 degrees (make sense)

    so, on my way in, i push the entrances and leave the piles til later and then clear the last entrance I do. (they are all in a row, it's not like I'm asking people to go down a totally different road or something.)

    But what happens? instead of using the entrance I have clear and the parking lot area I have clear?

    of course, they drive up to and over the piles and look at me like I"m the insane one?
    Ummm, drive about 50 more feet and it's pavement you idiots.
    I'm waiting for one to get stuck on a big pile once. :rolleyes:
