I couldn’t get up certain hills, had to curtail delivery to maybe 25 houses. The vehicles Uncle Sam supplies are as valuable as pieces of turd, except of course they’re made out of aluminum and won’t rust. They have rear wheel drive, which means only one wheel has power, no weight in the back, they won’t allow chains or studded snow tires, yet they tell us to be safe, safety is #1 they say. What a bunch of f*ckin idiots run this outfit! The good news is my 16 year old strapping young buck of a son did all the snow blowin..
you whimpy ass brahmanas always have something to complain about. we ksatriyas take what we're given and "can do". that's our attitude, "can do". it really bugs me that we are supposed to take instruction from you guys. quite personally, i just ignore it. can see your son is real good at taken your instruction. someday he'll learn.
The people that say ‘can do’ aren’t usually the one’s who ‘do’ anything. I do, we do. I tried to go up the steep hills, but there was easily 10 inches of snow on the unplowed surface, it was snowing all day. I spun around in a circle even attempting to go up. It was also dark, I don’t think it reasonable to think I was going to get out and walk all that mail and packages up the hill and through the deep snow on foot.
I am not an unconditional slave, I have my limits. Anyway, these were all mounted, box on post, deliveries. I don’t have to kill myself, get in a accident, or get stuck trying to get that last peice of mail delivered. I tried. I failed. They’ll get their friggin mail the next day when it’s plowed and sanded. I go out of my way to deliver for you, beyond what is expected of me, I usually can make those hills with effort, but sometimes, very rarely, I cannot. By the way, my son likes snowblowing, he never complains about it, why discourage a good thing?
A pic from today, day after the storm, my hibernating (cause it’s rear wheel drive) pick-up truck, and my littlest daughter, ahh....fresh snow.
