Lets hope that tonight will be better. I sent every sub a text that said if you damage ANYTHING, send me a picture, and expect a phone call. The kid that hit the pole is new to me but not new to my company. It never ceases to amaze me the lack of common sense people display

You think if Kmart made an announcement that there was a free toilet for the first customer to retrieve it, they'd haul it away?

I plow a few residential homes in my area. Last year one that I plowed I asked him if he had everything picked up he's like yeah so I come flying through and POOF!! There goes a pallet then POOF there goes a 2x8 like 12 ft that almost went through his door! I'm not plowing him anymore.

Shawn, how does one go about knocking over a light pole! Any damage to the truck?

He backed in to it with the truck, more specifically the spreader spinner. His spinner now sits crooked but still works. People back in to stuff all the time. Handicap signs,light poles, cars, buildings, yep that big ass thing that you couldn't miss BOOM , Nailed it.

I guess I should add that with the spreader in you can't see anything out of your rearview mirror.

Mike,
It's easy to back into something if you aren't paying attention. I can't tell you how many light poles my loader operators have knocked over. Had one backing up so fast he ran the bottom of the loader right up onto the concrete base. The bolts punctured the fuel tank. Had to bring another loader to lift him off.

This reminds me of people running bush hogs down here in the south. They tear the back wheel off the bush hog every other week and hit every fence, mailbox, car, water trough, pole barn......... every bush hog operator needs to own a welder as well because you will weld that damn back wheel on every week.

It happens a lot more when we are plowing than salting and I am still un clear how he hit this thing so hard. Salting is like driving a zamboni. Driving around in circles ,you only back in to docks and dead ends. Now plowing you are going forward /backwards and know where those things are, cause hell you have been looking at them telling yourself don't forget about that pole but you lose all spacial awareness and you think that pole is 2 rows over and Bam!! you worked for free today.
