Neighbors

So my shined up 928 has sat idle this whole winter.
It's been so mild with almost no snow in Utah. I'm talking to the neighbor today, (the one who I pull his two wheel drive truck out of 3 inches of snow last year, and the guy with no snowblower that I always get suckered in to helping dig out) anyway, he's literally in the street laughing at me how my new blower has gotten no use and how funny it is, and he says, You should just get a velvet rope to put around that snowblower in your garage. Haha.
He rubs me wrong anyway, so I said you'll really be laughing when I never dig out your sorry ass ever again.

You could always just rise above it. Ignore the taunts and clear his drive next time the snow comes.

Be the good neighbour yourself and it might well rub off on the other guy.

I would say to him "When you need help, ask for it"

...or you could point your snow blower chute toward his driveway and say "I believe in sharing, here, have some more of my snow".

My first reaction is I would help IF he asks for help. If he is older or in some way in real need then I would put it aside and do it either way.

I would have to agree with you, BUT would def make him give multiple snow blower compliments for his remarks already made LOL

I once had a neighbor who came over to talk to me while I was using my Ariens 10000 series snowblower to say, "Back when I had one of those things, it was a lot of work keeping that thing running than not," and then he walked away.

No real malice in his game, he was just old and had a tendency to blurt things out LOL.

Well wouldn't you know it.... a bad storm hit and there was about a foot of snow. His WIFE was out there with their little Honda HS520 to clear their driveway.

I just went over and cleared their EOD and their entire driveway. You bet your ascot that I used the same snowblower that he commented on.

He came out later to sheepishly shake my hand.

Well, actually that's the whole reason I sold my 624 and upgraded to the 928 is not because I have a huge area to clear on my property, but when it really hits us, I spend most of the day outside clearing other people's drives. This guy likes to push my buttons
