MA Personified: Who Would Have Thought Smitty Was Right?

Here is a video of a diabolical snow plow driver. He is a little rude, but I am not sure what he has done is really that bad, I mean he is just moving snow and unfortunately it does have to go somewhere. I mean I would hate to be the cars owners, but then again, knowing that much snow was coming, I would have moved my car to someplace besides the edge of the road where I knew snowplows were going to be putting their snow.

What do you guys (and gals) think? Was he just doing his job, or is he the Saddam Husein of Snowplow Drivers?

pretty typical of MA. its not the fact that he has to do it... its the fact that he seems to "like" doing it that is concerning.

nurses have to give shots to young kids... it does not mean they enjoy watching the tears.

Although i dont think they should be parking in the streets.. especially if they have driveways and knew the heavy snow was coming....but I'd bet this guy (plow driver) would go postal if someone did that to him...
Yes...he enjoyed it a bit to much

In MA cities there's no place to park BUT on the streets. You've got 30 people living in a 3-decker with one 4' long driveway. The landlord gets that spot, and the rest of the sheep get to park in the street. Broken mirrors and windows are a WEEKLY occurance, depending on the neighborhood ... sometimes DAILY!

With all the drama of the narration aside, where do people think he's supposed to put all the snow??? :confused: I laugh at all the Youtube comments. Can tell they don't live up here.

LOWELL (CBS) – A snow plow driver in Lowell was fired Friday for posting a video of himself burying parked cars and bragging about it during the blizzard earlier this month.

The driver, who would only identify himself as Dogg, told WBZ-TV he lost his job plowing for a contractor for the city after the YouTube video was broadcast on local television.
