Just over two feet of snow fell on the Boston area during a massive Nor'easter earlier this month, and while many citizens relied on public services to dig out of the snow, one snow plow driver apparently had a different idea about how to handle the situation. According to reports on the Lowell Sun and Boston.com, a plow driver named Mark Hussey posted a profanity-laced video on YouTube showing him laughing and expressing his enjoyment as he intentionally buries cars and blocks driveways.

In parts of the video, some cars are already just white lumps along the side of the street, but Hussey does his best to make sure they are even harder to get to. He even starts off by pushing back snow as one person attempts to clear their sidewalk and can do nothing but watch his Mack truck rumble by. According to reports, Hussey was not an employee of the city but worked for company contracted by the city to clear the snow, and, according to his statements, he made quite a bit of money doing so. We're not sure he's laughing as loud now, though, as it appears he's been fired for his transgressions.

Hussey's video and a related news reported are embedded below, but before you fire them up to watch, note that he uses a lot of explicit, Not Safe For Work language to describe his activities.

      I guess he was fired for enjoying what he was specifically asked and paid to do.

        He was paid to badmouth the people who pay his wages, and post it online?

      I have to laugh at those commenting that don\'t understand snow removal. When there is a storm coming, a parking ban is enacted. If it\'s in a highly populated area, usually it\'s one side of the road. The theory is that the cars that don\'t obey the ban get towed, but when you have an entire streetfull of idiots that don\'t care, that\'s not exactly economical. Thus they get plowed in. Those that do obey the law still have to shovel out all the snow and ice that the plow leaves behind blocking their driveway and front walk. The reason this guy was fired, was more about his cockiness and attitude regarding it. If you don\'t want your car to be plowed in, don\'t park on the street during a snowstorm. Very simple.

      I'm not sure he could have avoided it, but he gets the douche award for posting it to the internet. And with the douche award, comes some consequences like being fired. He really shouldn't be too surprised. Some things are best kept for showing family and friends only. And for that, we thank you. ;-)

      I can't say I'm an experienced snow plower but...where else is the snow supposed to go? Growing up in Chicago it was always common for people to get their cars out or try to clear spaces before the plows came through because once they did it was even worse. All he is doing is filming and being entertained by it.

      Where I live we have a tag'n'tow bylaw that covers between December 1st and March 31st for snow fall. No overnight parking is permitted during this time. Additionally any time out side of that period if there's a snow advisory by the city the same rules apply. So if they had the same there and I was a snow plow driver, I think I'd also take pleasure from burying illegally parked cars too.

        Where are you supposed to park then? We have streets where you can't park and streets where you can. Also they have rules about parking on one side of the street during snow. But you must park *somewhere*

          Narom, so what you're saying is if you need a car, **** the laws?

          Everybody here has a driveway so ostensibly they should be parking on their property then. Because of the rules, there should be no properties with out parking, if they exist and people need to park then they should be aware of the bylaws and not profess ignorance and necessity. If you NEEDED parking, buy a house with a drive way or be aware there would be consequences according to local bylaws.

          Sorry that just doesn't cut it. If you need a car, who should buy a house with a driveway? Good lord. Sometimes that's not possible.

      I don't living in a snowing area, so hope someone probably can explain to me how the plow drivers can do his job but still not to bury the cars on the road side? The snow in the middle of the road need somewhere to go, right? So, the snow goes to the side and the cars are on its way and got buried naturally?

      I guess at least he's not wrecking cars left and right like that guy In Brooklyn a year or two ago.

      LOL what a wanker. I agree that you need to get the snow off the road, and I would indeed rather have a clear road and a covered car as opposed to a covered road and a clear car, however I think he was getting a little too close to some of the cars. I would be more affraid of getting my mirror clipped off or a big scrape along the car if I saw him coming. At LEAST dont go posting the video of yourself trash talking people and telling what youre doing on youtube. Thats mistake number 1 lol.

        i cant defend the skill level of this driver but my car was plowed in one winter and i happened to be digging my car out when a plow came by and the guy saw me. he actually waved to me and helped clear the snow against my car, it was quite amazing. he got close enough to my car to plow almost all the snow resting against my car away and i was able to get in a drive in like... 3 minutes rather than 20. if this guy is half as good as the guy i encountered, i wouldnt be worried one bit.

      Although he sounds annoying as heck (the slang and cursing, not specifically the accent), I'm not sure how else he's supposed to accomplish his job? He has to plow the snow, and the snow has to go to the right of the truck towards the curb. He was actually doing a huge favor to the owners of the cars by getting as close as possible to the vehicles without hitting them. If he'd given himself more room, the snow would have piled up into a mounting right next to the cars, which would have been even more difficult to dig out of. The way he did it, there is less snow next to the cars to dig through. He's a natural Dbag for sure, but he's doing his job, and he's doing it very well. I don't see him being fired going over well, he'll sue most likely, and come out the winner, because he'll be able to prove exactly what I've said in this post. He did his job, and did it well. The fact that he's a jerk really wont have any weight in the matter when it comes to court.

      Holding a camera, obviously looking at the screen of said camera and driving a 40,000 pound vehicle in winter conditions? Can't imagine how that would get you fired.

        Driving while using a cell phone is basically the only thing they could actually fire him for, or at least fine him under local laws if prohibited. At least he's not scratching the cars (that we can see). Technically he's doing his job quite well.

      I suppose, if someone parks on the street during a snowstorm, he deserves to have his vehicle buried.

        Because everyone has driveways?

          Some states, it's against the law to park on your own front lawn. Which is why you don't see that idea used very often.

        yup. we get fined if we don't park in our driveways after a snowstorm.
