This reminds me of a few years back when we had our 14" snow storm. It took me 20 minutes just to get to the neighbor's driveway to get my 4-wheeler and trailer. I got a call from one of my customers (who isn't a customer anymore) demanding I show up immediately and clear his drive. I explained to him that the city crews haven't even been out to do the streets yet and I was having difficulty getting my equipment to the street, let alone down the street...and I have a 1 ton dually 4x4. He freaked out and told me he had a doctor's appointment (not an emergency) that he had to get to on time. At this point he's annoying me, so I asked how he planned to get down the street once I cleared his driveway. He said the city crews would be by and he'd get out. HAHA! So I told him I would work my way to him but that I had other customers on the list ahead of him who had already called. That pissed him off even more apparently. It wasn't an hour later he calls me back. He says I owe him the $25 I would have charged hime to do the drive. When I asked him what for he got all pissed off and began cursing me and said he had to hire someone else to come do his driveway. The guy's a freakin' nutcase! He thought I had to pay him back because he had to hire someone else...??? WTF?? After he called me everything but a white boy, I got him good and told him I have appreciated his business for the last 2 years and I wish him all the best and to have a WONDERFUL day. Just before I could hit the "end" button I heard a scream " F YOU!!!!" LMAO!! Some people are freaking crazy!! By the way...It took the city crews 3 days to clear all the streets in town..it took them 2 to get to his street. I'd love to have heard how much he was gonna charge the city!
