It doesn’t even take that much time out of your day to shovel your side walks, I see a lot of seniors struggling to get by! Stop being so darn lazy and your walks 😡

  1. I just had knee surgery and can’t walk. Had to get a friend to come over and shovel. Don’t judge. You don’t know people’s circumstances.

    • I live in pain, and I have the biggest amount to shovel on my rental property. It’s so difficult for me to lift the heavy snow and “throw it” …my friend helps me. I even tried hiring someone, but no luck. I just do it little by little….

    • When I can shovel, I don’t do it while it’s still snowing. I wait until it stops.

      It is still your responsibility to have that sidewalk clear of snow and ice!

    • Thanks for the info Sandra Wells. I won’t be handling a shovel for a while.

    • I have people to help but sometimes it requires a wait. It’s Canada. There is snow.

      so you have no regard for those having to use that sidewalk to get where they need to go in their daily lives! Would you have them take a nasty fall and seriously injure themselves? A lot of seniors also rely on a clear sidewalk! There are resources out there! Sorry for your surgery, it looks painful!

      I definitely agree that we need to be understanding of difficult situations out there, what seems so easy may be a nearly impossible task for others. Loss of a loved one, injury or medical issues money issues, depression or other mental illness. Some people are struggling to get out of bed or struggling to feed themselves so hiring is not possible. Be grateful for the life you have if shovelling seems so easy and like a 5 minute task but try to think about why others may be struggling and maybe offer to help…calling people lazy without knowing their circumstances is ignorant.

    • The only person using the sidewalk is my mail delivery person. The main walks are done by a company. If snow makes you fall, you live in the wrong place. I just navigated through ice and snow on crutches the day I had surgery. If people are at work while it is snowing, I don’t expect their walks to be clear for me.

  2. Those in wheelchairs, walkers or other aids have no hope in hell getting through all the snow…SHOVEL!

    Those people who haven’t shoveled could very well be in wheelchairs or something…

  5. A lot of people have hired companies to shovel walks. They are super busy right now because of all this snow! And those home owners could be seniors to or working shift work, or just waiting for the snow to stop so have some patience.

    She’s right about the shoveling. I’ve lived in my neighborhood now for 8 years and now all the neighbors. Their is just lazy people who don’t want to do it. Some neighbors rely on other neighbors to do it, because they are always shoveling the sidewalks. So why shovel, right. I wish we had the law like Sherwood Park has, they have 24hours to clear their walks or their is a fine.

  7. Ugh yes! Like I’m disabled and it’s hard to walk sometimes. What’s bad is when you know the people who live there are fully capable because they’re out drinking in the back yard moving shit around, bringing furniture in their backyard but are just to lazy to do their sidewalks.

    Yes I can empathise with those who are unable. I myself can’t shovel. But if you’re fully capable fucking do it. Its hard for everyone trying to walk on the slick ice let alone those with physical disabilities, or kids.

    Unless you’re referring to the people who never shovel and continuously walk over it, you’re a douche.

  9. I understand that some are unable to shovel physically, but aren’t you then responsible to make other arrangements? Is it not law to keep your sidewalks shovelled? I am not being rude, I totally get physical limitations. I’m just saying tho don’t you still have to make sure your walk is shovelled even if you have someone else do it for you?

    I’m so lucky with my neighbours. We share a super long sidewalk as we are both the corners. We share. Whom ever gets out there first will do the entire length and we keep it up when it’s snowing so it doesn’t get so heavy.

    So I guess a shoutout to my awesome neighbours.

    Remember, there are also a lot of seniors living in the homes that you are complaining about not having shoveled their side walk. Relax.

  16. Regardless wether its laziness , handicap or mobilty issues its still law to get it done 24 hrs after . Hire someone or pay a neighbours kid or whatever needs to be done ive seen many people falling yesterday and you can be sued. I sent my son and husband over to do my parents as my father just had knee surgery

  17. Those who havent the physical capability to shovel may not be in a financial place to hire someone. Maybe offer to help? Assuming everyone is just lazy is a sign we would rather judge than understand.

    All my neighbors are able and pretty much stick to their own sidewalks but I have a snow blower so when it snows like yesterday I will do the main walk in the front of everyone’s house and up their main walk to get the bulk of the snow then it’s just a matter of them cleaning up the edges if so desired…some day I might need the favor returned

  22. It’s actually very scientific.
    I’ve never seen a senior walk by.
    Do you deliver mail?

  23. You have 24 hours to clear your sidewalk or you can get fined by the city.
    It don’t take long. Just do it.
    If your physically unable, then don’t be afraid to ask for help…..
    My neighbours and I take turns doing each others. It’s awesome.

  24. Well my walk at home isn’t shoveled yet, because I am out of town this weekend. I’ll get to it when I get back tomorrow. You have no idea why someone wasn’t out there the minute the snow stopped. If it still isn’t done in a few days then fine complain, but this quickly…get over it.
