There was about 2 inches of powdery snow on my car Thursday morning. Going to work, I ended up behind a BMW 745i, probably this year's model. It was covered in snow, all the driver did was turn on the wipers and clear a small square in the front windows to see the mirrors. Back windscreen, back windows and most of the front windows were still covered in snow. First off, this guy has a new BMW but no garage to put it in, secondly he's too lazy to even clear off the back screen, which is a problem because those mirrors weren't much use after a couple of miles on the highway. And he's bombing along at 60mph
on the slush-ridden road, barely able to see.

I can picture the techs aggressively growling at their screens, stomping around the office, and having fist-fights at the copier. I'd prefer they worked calmly, things might get fixed faster.
