On Jan 1 I noticed the plow driving in front of my house with the plow down. By the way there was no snow on the road. Today Jan 2 my road is covered with snow and they are driving up and down the road with the plow up. No sand or salt coming out of the back of the truck either. I wanted to open my wallet up and burn more of my tax dollars. I also live on a main street. I pray soon to leave this area.

Call Tom Jones if you are so damn concerned, rather than ranting on Rome Topix. Your post proves that all you want to do is spread bullshit about our public servants (who are real men with real families, by the way).
As for Tom, I'm sure he's had to explain PROCEDURE to more than a few clueless folks this season already.

And keep praying to leave this area. Please. You sound like you'd be the turd in the punchbowl at the office Christmas party. Debbie Downer ring a bell?

FYI: OUR tax dollars are NOT being wasted but go ahead and keep harping on that if it makes you feel relevant. The only thing in your wallet is lint, negativity and cynicism.

You have no clue about the plow drivers' routes, schedules, routines, where to use sand or salt, inside districts/ outside areas.....
And since you DO live on a main street, surely you KNOW that main streets are a means for these men to get to their area of work OR back to the yard for more material. Relax, your street will be taken care of honey. This is not I Dream of Jeannie. No amount of blinking and crossing of arms is going to get the whole city cleared of snow in an instant.
A plow driver may need to use that street to get to HIS area without dropping his plow or using sand or salt. If it's not his route, he needs not do anything on that street but DRIVE to his destination. Mull those points over on your way to Dunkin' and HAPPY POSITIVE NEW YEAR to you.

Plow drivers route has nothing to do with plowing a bare road. Plow drives route has nothing to do with snow covered roads being driven on by plows that are up. If you are a Rome City plow driver and the road is snow covered put your plow down. I do not care if it is your route or not. I have called on previous occasions. The response I have had was that there is no school so there is no hurry to get the roads done. How are ht etax dollars not being wasted on a plow that is plowing tar or a plow that is just driving around. I suggest you gt your math straight, as far as I know gas is not free.
wow.

Actually it IS important for them to not put their plows down and get to their route bc in their route, another miserable f*ck like you is whining. Where do you work? Bc I would love to come watch you for a day so that I can do what you are doing and write a topix thread about how bad you do your job, when really I don't work there, so I DONT KNOW THE PROCEDURE. Go to work and stop b*tchinh you old crank.

I called Tom Jones for answers...

He told me "It's Not Unusual" for people to suck at their jobs around here. Then he did an awkward pose and shuffle dance.

And I suggest that you look at the BIG PICTURE!
Plow drivers do NOT plow bare roads OR drive around aimlessly. Do you think that they are idiots? Well they are NOT! They are not "plowing tar"--- they are scraping and or shelving. You have no idea what you are talking about and you WON'T until you've been in a plow driver's position, following procedure.
Do you know what happens if they don't scrape slush? Do you know how hard it is to get out of your driveway if your banks are unshelved? Ponder those things and just be thankful for our city's DPW.
And no shit, gas is not free Einstein. Keep bitching.

They won't come by and clean the streets until it quits raining.

By then, it's time for the local 4X4 crews to muddy up the roads again anyway. But that's because WE don't have snow. Or Mr. Plow.

We got hookers that work the mudpit @ Richie's, though, so there's THAT.
