Video: Swearing plow driver buries cars, gets fired

In Massachusetts, where it's a daily competition to see who can be the most annoying driver, this can be expected.

Ever feel like your local plow drivers were purposely putting more snow on your car as some sick, cruel torture to make winter even worse?

Well, up in Lowell, Mass., a working-class suburb north of Boston, one guy really was. Because he filmed it and uploaded the video to YouTube. And then the city promptly fired him.

Mark Hussey of Billerica, another northerly suburb, is what we in Massachusetts refer to as a "Masshole." Massholes can be of any nationality and background, so long as they're driving with extreme indifference while wearing Massachusetts license plates. When they're rocking an obnoxious, rough-idling Boston accent littered with expletives -- the kind local boy Ben Affleck fails miserably trying to imitate -- it can't get much more stereotypical.

But stereotypes are at least in part based on reality, and for Hussey -- a middle-aged man with nose rings who is "f$#$in lovin' the f$#% outta my truck" -- is that guy.

Boston.com reports Hussey was working for a private plowing company that was contracted by the city. He shot a number of other videos that don't involve burying cars in 3-foot piles of snow. So that only qualifies him for temporary Masshole status.

"My only mistake was being overboard with the commentary, if i was explaining what i was doing instead of mouthing off i probably would have got a raise," he wrote on YouTube. "i did get fired, another lesson learned. my fault 100%."

The video's below, and be careful, there are a lot of words that start with the letter "F."

I had this happen to me several years ago when I lived in a steep mountain home with a steep uphill climb to get out of the driveway. We would park on the shoulder the night we were expecting storms and this guy would bury us as deep as possible for it each time. One morning I came up to find my vehicle had plowed snow pushed up against the front , rear and sides almost four ft deep. Made a call to the County and I don't know if he got fired but they came out, dug my car out, and it never happened again. There's no excuse for it other than the driver is an ****!
