Let鈥檚 see you little punks smash my letterbox now

This reminds me of this guy who used to live on my dad鈥檚 street. 聽

Every time it snowed, the snow plow would take out his mailbox - and only his mail box. 聽And just to be clear - it was done intentionally. 聽No one knows why, but the driver of the snow plow would target his box and mow it down. 聽He鈥檇 call the DOT to complain, and would get an earful of excuses that amounted to 鈥渘ot our fault you have a wimpy mailbox.鈥 聽

Fast forward to the next winter. 聽First decent snow starts falling, and every kid is hoping for a snow day. 聽It was right around 4:30 am that the whole neighborhood was woken up to this loud CLANG and the screech of tearing metal. 聽My dad made it to the window first and started laughing his ass off.

Sitting out side was one very totaled, and almost ripped in half, snow plow. 聽And these weren鈥檛 little pick-up trucks with a blade on the front, we have these up in NY:

Well, turns out over the summer, my dad鈥檚 neighbor got himself a backhoe and sank a steel I beam into the ground in his front yard. 聽Then he covered it with a decorative wood sleeve and topped it with a brand new mailbox. 聽When the snowplow driver tried to mow it down it was a bad case of immovable object meets unstoppable force - and the mailbox won. 聽With the plow firmly impaled on the I beam, it was very clear that the driver had gone out of his way to hit it. 聽

Naturally, the DOT wasn鈥檛 happy, and the neighbor鈥檚 reply was simple: 鈥淣ot my faulty you have a wimpy snowplow.鈥 聽They did try to sue him for the damages, but as he had gone to the town, gotten approval for the post and its installation, and made sure everything was up to code, it was thrown out pretty quick. 聽

And for anyone wondering about the driver鈥 聽He was fine. 聽His job and tighty-whiteys 鈥 not so much.


That is a very satisfying read.

When Doug was growing up, a great horned owl used to perch on the top of his family barn. His father saw the owl often, but he and the rest of his family rarely did. However, on the morning of his father鈥檚 death, the owl was spotted overlooking the farm house, where Pojeky鈥檚 father had passed away, before flying off into the woods.

no no no no no
this owl is not a happy owl
this owl is an injured, weak owl with a head injury
this owl is not displaying appropriate owl behaviors and is ill-equipped for life as a wild owl. this owl should be trying to escape and/or murder this man because that is just what owls do, especially great horned owls
apparently this owl got released which really alarmed me because either she made a miraculous recovery or she was completely not in any way ready for release and doesn鈥檛 have great chances of survival
believe me, i wish owls were all cuddly sweethearts who gave hugs and appreciated our care but that is so very much not reality. even the sweetest owl i know - who is the light of my life and a joy to work with - likes to murder stuff and will hiss and threaten you if he doesn鈥檛 trust you or wants you to gtfo. and when i say聽鈥渟weetest owl鈥 basically i just mean that he鈥檚 bonded to his two main trainers and is comfortable with us but if you ask anyone else he鈥檚 a grouchy old man with sharp talons. because he鈥檚 an owl. he鈥檚 not a snuggly pet. and he鈥檚 a 14-year-old captive-bred barn owl who has lived with humans and been an education bird his whole life, not a wild great horned owl who is clearly injured and having a shitty week of being grabbed and handled by giant mammals. this great horned owl is not a happy owl and it certainly isn鈥檛 feeling any sort of gratitude. mostly she鈥檚 too sick/injured to have enough energy to defend herself or hold her wings up or keep her eyes open.
when wild animals get released it鈥檚 nice to think that they are silently thanking us for saving them, but that鈥檚 what we don鈥檛 want. we want them to be ready for life in the wild, which means we want them to hate us and want to avoid humans forever, because that gives them the best chance of survival. the best thanks you can get from a rehabilitated wild animal is when they fly/run/swim the fuck away from you as soon as you open the cage and never look back. those are the successes.
