I was plowing out a friends parking spaces in front of his house after the 2010 snowstorm so he could park his three construction vans. So, I piled up all the snow across the street in front of the neighbor's house since there is just grass normally in that location.
One hour later, I got a phone call from the neighbor asking if I could please come back out. He explained to me the reason why. I had to remove a twelve-foot snow pile I piled on top of his Chevy Cavalier.
Needless to say, I didn't see the car but was wondering why the pile was so high. I just thought I piled up that much snow. So instead of making more money that day, I had to spend the rest of the day digging out the car by hand.
Lesson learned: know where all the cars are located before piling snow in front of someone else's house. If you don't, you might just spend the rest of your day hand shoveling someones car outta a snow pile. I felt terrible about it the rest of that day since I was concerned that I might have damaged his car.
Thankfully, there was no damage and the guy really wasn't that upset afterward anyways. But because I had to shovel all that snow, my back was killing me.
