Somebody got out of his machine and told him not to park there - it was a private lot and he was in the way....Driver told him to F-off he wouldn't be long....and he left his car in the middle of the lot.

That's where we pushed the remaining snow - into a huge,6' high "donut" around his little car - with plenty of room so there was no way he could claim damages.

He returned while we were still there. He screamed...it was a beautiful scene.


(edit) And no,we did not remove the snow
Awesome!

Another example of the "I'm f***ing special" people. He had to see you guys plowing, so it's bad enough he parked there in the first place. But, to be told to move, refuse and curse you out?.... un-be-lievable!

So, you think it's nothing... and it's ok for people to just ignore rules? You come off exactly like these jacka$$es that park like that.

Doesn't matter if it is on purpose or not. A lack of awareness is sufficient idiocy to warrant punishment.

Continuing the thread drift: There used to be a boatyard next to my place, complete with a travel lift. On a Friday afternoon, this dude parked his truck right in the middle of the access drive and blocked a tractor trailer doing a delivery, then jumped in his boat and left. Yard guys tried to move it, all locked up. So they got the travel lift, put straps under it and picked it up and moved it. Funny part is they left it in the slings six feet up. Five o'clock rolled around and the whole crew went home. Truck still in the air.

Yard manager gets a call a couple hours later from a pissed truck/boat owner. Manager came and let the truck down. I talked to the yard guys the next week and they claimed they billed the guy for a "haul out"!

Should have dunked it while they had it in the slings.

The "car guys" here need to study more. Focus RS. AWD, 350hp, recaro seats. Nice cheap ($40-45k) hotrod. Expensive Focus for sure. A bunch were misbuilt w incorrect head gaskets that resulted in a recall. The ST has a different roof edge spoiler.Carry on w the bashing.

We used to put a quarter watermelon rind under car wheels. Once they back onto them it takes a lot of spinning to wear through it and get free. Was a lot of fun when there was just one drive wheel.

More topic drift. Several years ago some guy in a box truck insisted in parking in my assigned spot. Many many times I turned the other cheek and parked way down in the visitors slot. One snowy night I came home really late after working long hours. There he was again. I punched out his drivers side view mirror which effectively left him blind. He never parked there again

You guys need to cut her a little slack. It's her small victory against the patriarchy.

True, maybe time for a pound-me-too moment...

Do you really feel comfortable posting that rant in a public, documented place? If anything happens to her, you could be the first suspect.
