    “There’s a three-foot section of sidewalk that’s mine,” Myers said in an interview with WEWS News.
    No sir...the sidewalk is not yours.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Re: Angry Ohio man blows snow on neighbour trying to shovel his sidewalk

    The guy was trying to make a political statement and his neighbor was ****ing up his political statement.

    "He said he wanted his driveway left uncleared on purpose, as a statement of protest against city officials he claimed frequently do not shovel their own driveways.

    “I’ll be damned if I’m going to clean my sidewalk and bust my rear end to keep my sidewalk clean when we got officials in this city who don’t practice what they preach,” Myers said."



    So to make his point about busting his ass the guy spent extra time to shovel the snow back into place hoping that city government will notice that he is a lop. Forget the fact that he has a damn snow blower which makes the job, easy as vacuuming a carpet.

    On a side note I new a elderly man back in Oregon that used a special propane torch to melt his driveway. Each time that he used it, his neighbor called 911 to report a fire. But during the summer during restricted fire condition's the same neighbor that called the fire department would burn his trash in a huge pile right next to his barn. Some people are just assholes and some are stupid assholes, his barn burnt taking with it his motor home and boat.

Every time it has snowed this year, I have gone downtown to help somebody I know out by shoveling pathways between 3 plowed parking lots so the ladies who park in the lot furthest from their work would not have to climb the mounds of snow pushed up along the margins of the three lots to get to their work as the companies that do the lots just push it all up in big rows and leave.

    As for the OP, my city has an ordinance that requires that you maintain the sidewalk in front of your home/business free of snow and ice. If someone falls and injures themselves because you do not, then you are liable. The guy who wants the kids to have to walk in the street instead of down the sidewalk is just a penis.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Not me, just the opposite. You can always put more clothes on to get warm, but there's a limit to how many you can take off to get cool.

    Once again, it's better to ask before helping someone who might not want your help. Perhaps the fellow with the bigass plow does damage when he clears and the one neighbor wants to clear his spot without damage. Perhaps he just wants to do it himself. In either case, the fellow with the plow is the bigger asshole. If he weren't he wouldn't be piling the street's snow in front of the other fellow's house.

    Remember the old saying, "Some kinds of help are no help at all".

    Helps me either way. Snow has to be pushed somewhere and as long as it is not in front of my house....besides we live at the bottom of the hill. The street in front of the busy body's property is the natural place for it to be pushed anyways. If it were pushed in front of my huse, the melt would refreeze and create a giant sleet of black ice as my side of the street is the higher side.

    it comes down to this for me. When you're freezing and you go inside it takes a good 30 minutes to lose the chill, but when you are hot you are refreshed the moment you step into the air conditioning.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    I am also in a hot climate.

    My opinion is that blankets are cheaper than electricity.
