I am sitting in my office starring out the window as my twenty something neighbor is getting reading to leave for work. He drives a big box truck for National HME which supplies beds etc for nursing homes and hospitals.

Yesterday after the snow ended I cleared my driveway etc of snow. My neighbor chose to stay in the house so his driveway is filled with frozen snow and ice and the snow plow added more of it to the end of the driveway too. Did my neighbor shovel anything? Hell no. So now he is going to attempt to back out of his frozen driveway which has about thirty inches deep of snow and ice on the end of it.

Two years ago he did the same thing and burnt up a tranny on his truck. I am going to assume the same is going to happen today. He just cleaned his windshield with a shovel and tore off both wipers. This is our future people, these are the people that want all the free stuff, the entitled group. The group that makes me sick to my stomach.

Yes they saw me out there clearing our driveway and hoped I would clear their driveway too. Not going to happen... not now, not ever. I learned a lot this pass year, I am a changed person now. I guess you can say I am woke now too.

Rose get the popcorn; this is going to be good.

I have two neighbors just like that. One of them had the balls to try to park in my driveway, I can't clean it myself any more so I get someone to do it, he found out right quick that he wasn't going to park there.

Maybe a writer for a TV show can use that in a future episode of something.

Ok they finally realized the only way to get out was with a shovel. So outside they were in their flip flops, tie died tops moving frozen ice to get their vehicles out but only after an hour of smoking the tires. What can I say... assholes!

I do have a good story for this. I was out shoveling our driveway after a 13" snowfall. I had only made it about 5 feet down the driveway from the garage. The fellow driving the city snowplow saw me when he was coming down the street, he yelled over to me and motioned me out of the way. He pulled up to where I had stopped. Dropped the blade and backed down my driveway clearing it in one swipe. I offered him a $20 bill for his help since it saved my back from a lot of pain later. He wouldn't take it, wished me a Merry Christmas and went on his way. Not many like that anymore.....sadly.

You are lucky. I am on a dead end street and have only seen a plow on our street a few times in the 25+ years I have lived here. Several years ago after a large snowfall I called to find out when our street would be plowed. The person I spoke to was indignant and told me every street in the county had already been plowed.

It was a company vehicle Bill, he burnt up one two years ago doing the exact same thing. The girl friend ripped off her rear plastic bumper trying to get out. Again, ASSHOLES...

If it was me, I'd let his company know about his abuse of their equipment.

I certainly appreciated hearing things like that when our family was in business. We made an employee pay for damages once, told him it would be deducted from paycheck....so he quit.
It was good riddance. If we'd have fired him, we would have been on the hook for State unemployment. He did us a favor quitting; he didn't qualify for unemployment on our tab; and the new guy we hired cost us less in repairs.
