Snow Rage, "Don't Shovel My Sidewalk"

'Don't Touch My Sidewalk!' Bizarre Snow Rage Erupts In Violence

It's sad when a random act of kindness such as shoveling a sidewalk turns ugly. It's almost like we've become so "irritated" and overly sensitive as a society that people just don't know how to respond appropriately when someone does something nice or unexpected. Very disappointing.

Some people go nuts when closed in by waves of snowstorms.

One angry dude right there! Good thing that the young guy kept his cool...could've gotten really ugly!

They also had the clip of the guy trying to free himself (4x4 jeep) from the clutches of his parking space

Thanks for the clip. Had to post it on my FB page.

The jeep guy was awesome. Did you see him open his door and look out with the wheels still spinning. You would be amazed how many people get run over by their own cars in these situations. I know a patrolman that got run over by his own patrol car during a bad snow storm. He tore ligaments in his knee requiring surgery but not life threatening.

I think cabin fever just exposes those who are barely able to keep it together in everyday life.

Thin Mints can thaw even the frostiest demeanor. At least they do for me.

Unreal! Just unreal. But the guy that just bought a 70,000 dollar Cherokee and gets stuck in 6 inches of snow I'd be mad too, in fact they would get their 4X4 back and maybe right into the showroom.

The funny part is the sidewalk probably is city property so that grumpy a**hole has no right trying to govern what anyone does on it.

On the flip side one thing people need to remember is that some people dont like help from others unless asked. I am one of those people myself. I dont even like being harassed by salesmen in stores unless I ask for help. Another thing is that some people enjoy and find it relaxing to care for their yard or blow snow. I bought a new snowblower this year and had my neighbor deprived me of using it for the first time, I would have been upset too. I would have been nice about it though and not flew off the handle like that guy. I am very surprised that young guy kept his cool when that guy pushed his face. That old guy really should think before he acts like that to person they dont know well. If that young guy had a temper, the old guy probably would have ended up knocked out cold in the snow he wanted to shovel.
