Snow Plow Driver Fired For Bragging About Burying Cars

'You want to find your car? You come see me!'
Snow Plow Driver Brags About Covering Cars

Bragging about burying cars in snow has cost a Lowell, Mass., snow plow driver his job - but he might have the last laugh.

Blackdoggxxx posted a 2 1/2 minute video on YouTube, shot through the windshield of his Mack truck, showing him laughing as he pushing snow banks to the curb.

"Watch this one," he says in the profanity-laced video, "now you see it, oh! That's snow going up over it... over the roof of the car!"

"Ha haaaaa! You want to find your car? You come see me, I'll let you know where it is. Maybe. Ha ha ha ha ha!"

After WBZ-TV found the clip and it went viral, "Dogg" defended himself to a radio talk show Friday morning, saying he'd been working 22 hours straight.

"If I can get some kind of enjoyment out of it, why not?" he told the Karlson & McKenzie show. "I really don't care if I make more enemies."

But his bosses at RSG Contracting of Lowell didn't see the humor in it and fired the driver - identified by WCVB-TV as Mark Hussey of Billerica - from what he called the best job he's had in 30 years.

There may be a silver lining for the man who calls himself "Dogg," though. He says he's fielded three phone calls from television producers in New York and Los Angeles, saying he'd make a good reality TV star. He's thinking about it.

I saw a comment on here about "nay sayers" [sic]. Obviously they don't understand what a naysayer is. Maybe the guy shouldn't have been fired, and it's OK to have a little fun while you're doing your job, but if you can't understand why it's not a good idea to PUBLISH the video on the internet... well... let's just say it wasn't very bright.

I thought it was pretty funny. Aside from the "F" bomb being dropped every third word, I didn't see anything wrong with it. It's not like he was running into the cars. What was he suppose to do with the snow? The plow is designed to angle it to the side of the road.

I don't get it. What is the problem? He was plowing the snow and enjoying his job. Where do you expect a man who is driving a huge truck to put the snow? If they used dumpster to dump the snow into expect to pay double in property taxes. The cheapest and most effective way to move the snow is to the side. I wonder what is parked on the sides of each street? cars!

There was a parking ban in Lowell during the storm, where else was he going to put the snow if not on the cars? The cars shouldn't have been on the street in the first place. I saw this on the news yesterday, and I can't believe he was fired. He was probably just trying to break up the monotony of the day.

He should not have been fired for making a video. he should have been fired for burying the cars.

Keep in mind, HE is the one who says he's gotten THREE calls... Really? Three? Hard enough to believe he'd get one... oh, and you remember the guy claiming to have gotten these calls, right? The one with the IQ level just short of having any common sense, that was out burying cars with his plow?

Being on a reality TV show is his "last laugh?" OK, if you say so.

I can see that few people know that a plow truck can not avoid covering cars when plowing. He was just enjoying what he does. LOL Just maybe, if the people didn't park on the street, there would not be as much of a problem.
Can one nah- sayer out here tell me how he was to plow without covering the cars?
If you don't want your car buried, don't park on the street.
