Well..........Let us HOPE that in the ifinte wisdom of our new Governor, someone in the Governor's cabinet spends some really good time looking at how the Ashe Co NCDOT is run by the present head, Doug Eller.
I personally, as a resident of Ashe Co, DO NOT BELIEVE, that our tax dollars are being spent wisely by this man. ANYONE, that lives and works in the County Of Ashe can see that SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much waste is going on in this man's dept!
NEVER in my lifetime here in this county have I seen our roads in such a horrible mess!
AND its not the lack of funds on the states part!

POOR MANAGEMENT AT OUR LOCAL OFFICE!!!!!!!

Honestly get a life and find something to complain about that can be changed. When snow is falling this hard and this fast there is nothing anyone can do about the roads. Get your ass out there and scrape the road and then you will see that really until it stops snowing you cannot clear the roads. good lord...

OK,
That I understand.......But when I see 7 snow removal trucks parked at Hardee's with the drivers eating breakfast this morning and the roads looking like CRAP, one has to wonder, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOUR BOSS LET YOU EAT BREAKFAST ON HIS TIME?
With that said, how many people do you think were involved in accidents while these guys spent 50 min in Hardee's?

Guys, I had to sit and wait for these guys to move out before I could go to work.

Yeah, I know, Went inside and asked. The shift changed at 5:00am. This was 7:30am.

If you have some kind of problem with this its really easy for you to check it out. Stop by at Hardee's or McDonald's any morning between 7:00am and 9:00am, if you are a resident of Ashe, and tell me the next time you post, HOW MANY DOT TRUCKS DID YOU SEE? Reguardless of weather conditions you'll find several. Including one of the county supervisors resposable for the crews that are in there

blah blah blah they are a bunch of under paid workers. Like I said before if you are not happy with their service get a job doing it and do it as you please.

I eat WELL! Why don't you try to get a life on your own and not attach yourself to someone else.

THAT is what I very DISLIKE about Ashe CO NC! No one around here can speak for themselves, or open up their own business, or make a statement, without asking someone else! Did anyone in your family show you how to live without attaching yourself to someones back side BUB!

Oh by the way..........THAT IS WHY I never HIRE YOU GUYS HERE! You can't even talk the talk, much less walk the walk..........You might get the job..........BUT, I've never seen you be able to do the job, SONNY!

Why don't you just go back where ever it is you came from where they talk like you and not like us? Where there isn't any snow, and where you sit ALONE eating breakfast at Hardees while watching the guys in the corner laughing and have a good breakfast watching it snow harder than you can imagine, and your sitting there wishing it was your life because your pitiful, disrespectful, inconcederate lazy ass can't do what these guys do for us, maybe I didn't spell anything properly but I don't give a shit because this is who we are and were we live and people like you have came in and took it away from us. STAY HOME when it snows you ain't got no buisness being out, unless you are dieing. Oh yeah why don't you call the DOT and get there side of the story, or are you to good to have a Phone Book!!!!
