Be Nice to the People Who Plow The Streets
Here in Billings, you hear a lot of complaints about the lack of snow plows on the streets. And nobody hears it more than the guys who actually drive the trucks. In a way, they are kind of like police officers. Nobody’s ever happy to see the guy in the snow plow.
Yesterday, Mark witnessed a “plow rage” incident. He was stopped on Hilltop while “the world’s biggest snowblower” took on a huge snowdrift. While they were waiting for the plow to clear the street, the man in the car behind Mark got angry. He started honking his horn and cussing out the snow plow driver. Like it was the driver’s fault.
Next time you see a snow plow driver, give that guy a thumbs up. There might not be enough of them, but the ones we have are performing a valuable service.
