When its snowing
I should have written this years ago. I am a snowplow contractor in northern Va, Loudoun County to be exact, and I need to point out a few things to people when there is a snowstorm.
1: If you don’t need to go out, then don’t. Why do you feel the need to run to the store during a storm? Did you not hear or see the forecast? Are you that low on bread, milk, smokes and beer that you have to risk your life and the lives of others?
2: If you must go out, stay the fuck out of my way, if you see a truck in a shopping center with a plow on the front, and a flashing yellow light on the roof, don’t try to pass the truck when its plowing, don’t pull up in a fire lane, park the vehicle, get out, and “run into the store for a second”, your in the fucking way, not to mention parked illegally, haven’t you figured out that im trying to clear the parking lot so morons like you can shop there?
3: When you pull into a parking lot where a truck is plowing, ( I know I can speak for most plow contractors when I say that we try to clear spaces close to the building first so vehicles may park ) pull into a space that has already been cleared, don’t park your piece of shit halfway up the lot that im trying to plow. If you cant tell the difference between parking spaces that have been cleared and ones that haven’t, the plowed spaces are black, the unplowed spaces are white.
4: Don’t pull into a large parking lot that im plowing, get out, tie a sled to the back of your Subaru and pull your kids around at 25mph, anyone who does this is a fucking idiot, and shouldn’t be allowed to have kids. Your father should have pulled out.
5: SUV’s,…… I don’t care what the salesman told you, your sport- utility- vehicle WILL GET STUCK, and it’s usually in my way, stop flailing your arms and jumping up and down like you just won the lottery, trying to get me to stop to help
I could care less, im not breaking up my truck trying to pull your junk out of a snow bank just because you don’t know how to drive, stay the fuck home.
6: Property managers; most of you people understand what were trying to do, but there are a few of you who need to be shot, stop calling and asking the same questions you already know the answers to, here’s the #1 question “when are you coming?”, and here is the #1 response: “When I pull into the fucking lot, I have arrived” And another thing, when we do a good job we don’t expect praise, we just want you to pay the god damn bill, stop picking apart the job because your to cheap to pay, just send in a check and shut the fuck up. If you cant do this, then find your SIGNED CONTRACT and bring it to court.
7: Crabby people: Lets get one thing straight right now, I DID NOT CAUSE IT TO SNOW, ok? Its not my fault, don’t yell obscenities at me, don’t throw shit at my truck, don’t threaten to kick my ass unless your fat, half -drunk ass can do it. And to the guy behind the K-Mart a few years back who wouldn’t step aside so I could continue plowing, when I asked you kindly to step aside, and you started playing with your buck knife, giving me shit, you need to know that you came within 2 seconds of having a 9mm auto in your face, have you never heard the joke about the guy who brought a knife to a gunfight? Dumb ass. You weren’t worth a 10-cent bullet.
8: I also want to take time to thank the police officers and firefighters who have to deal with idiots in bad weather, after seeing a guy in a SUV pull RIGHT OUT in front of a fire engine with the siren screaming.
And finally to the guy in the blue BMW that flipped me off and walked away, …..you should be able to find your car sometime in mid May.
