The snow was coming down steadily and had been for several hours. My partner had been plowing for a couple of hours already, and I had just changed
places with him and started to clear a new lot. I always plow the access points to the lot last to keep people out of my way, so here I am just
getting started on this lot, which just happens to be a car wash, and this car stops in the middle of the street and starts honking and flashing his
My partner gets out thinking that the guy is having car trouble, so he goes to help while I continue plowing. He comes back and says, "You're not
gonna believe it, he wants to wash his car." I said, "Does he realize it's 28 degrees?" My partner replies, "Yes, he knows but he just has to try it."
Well, I clear him a path to the nearest wash bay and continue to clear the lot, which takes roughly 45 minutes.

steps outside, still talking to me on the phone, the guy breaks the door handle and goes flying into a snow drift loosing his hat and glasses. After
crawling around in the snow, he finds his hat, full of snow, and moments later his glasses. Now the manager is on the scene. He uses the hot pressure

I am now plowing the lot directly across the street, and I have been watching the whole thing from a distance. My phone rings again and guess what? He
let it run out of gas. The manager takes a gas can up the street, brings back a couple of gallons of gas and puts it in the car himself. We don't want
to take any chances now. We just want this guy to get home before he does some real damage. The guy starts his car again, leaves the wash and drives

He stops at the nearest gas station, fills the car and drives away with the nozzle still in the tank tearing the pump from its base. Talk about your
