Report: NYC Sanitation Supervisors Ignored Duties to Drink Alcohol During Blizzard
Published January 02, 2011
New York Post
Instead of plowing, they got plowed.
A group of New York City Sanitation supervisors is under investigation for allegedly buying booze and chilling in their cozy department car for hours Monday night after the blizzard stranded a bus and three snowplows blocks away.
The city's Department of Investigation is probing the incident after witnesses said four snow blowers blew off their duties to get blitzed, buying two six-packs of beer from a Brooklyn bodega. The workers then walked five blocks to their car, which was in 20 inches of snow in the middle of 18th at McDonald avenues near the F train entrance, passing the stuck bus and idle plows on 18th Avenue between Third and Fourth streets.
The four remained in the idling sedan until morning -- then told their bosses they could do nothing about the blizzard because they had run out of gas, one witness said.
"They just sat in their car all night with the heat running," the witness said.

Heck, those sanitation workers needed anti-freeze in their blood, don’t you see.
It was cold outside.
I’m sorry... I fail to see anything unique in the recent blizzard.
The four remained in the idling sedan until morning
Say what? Four guys got blitzed on 12 beers?
Poorly written headline.
Could have implied they had a a duty to drink alcohol during blizzard.
Nice work if you can get it...
Maybe it was two 6 packs each????
Absolutely, if you ever watched "Cops" you'll know that the falling down drunks they catch always have had just "a coupla beers"...
Three beers each all night long is pretty much just phoning it in. Mad Dog would have done the job better, and saved the city money as well.
This headline makes it sound they have a duty to drink... lol
All of the other implications aside, I don’t see how sitting in a car all night can be fun. I’d get too bored being a Union Thug. But I like to work when I’m at work, and they probably look down on that attitude.
Unions. UGH, I HATE EM!
These unions need to be put into their place. I fire them all. Funny thing yesterday stopped in the local ACME food store. A lady was at the seafood counter and no one was there. After waiting for a while, she walked over to the lunchmeat counter and asked if the gentleman could help her. His response was “I’m not in the union to work that counter”. Are you kidding me? Now the unions are holding our food hostage. Do a Reagan and FIRE THEM ALL.
“I hope none of you shirk your duty to drink alcohol during blizzards.”
I never shirk my duty, and I pratice durning nice weather to keep my skills up to date.
And people died. Negligent homicide charges for all who ignored their duty.
Given the players, I doubt this will go anywhere.
But this is hilarious:
Fox News excerpts the article from The New York Post and you excerpt the Fox News article here.
At least they were drinking lite beer.
Don’t know where you live, but I went to a WinCo store the other day and was blown away. I have been used to either overpriced unioin stores and WalMart and this WinCo was an old school supermarket. The quality seemed top notch and the prices beat WalMart (dramatically in the bulk food section), and it was clean, well stocked and organized.
From what I understand, they are part employee owned, so maybe that has a lot to do with it. Not really on subject, but I was pretty impressed.
“NYC Sanitation Supervisors Ignored Duties to Drink Alcohol During Blizzard.”
Probably a nice way to get forced into retirement with full benefits.
So basically a bunch of welfare queens got wasted on the taxpayer dime?
That is not exactly news.
Rudy IS a very prickly SOB. He ran NYC as if he were Mussolini cleaning up Naples. And, he got it done, making the City almost livable for ordinary people for a while; a whole lot safer, and a whole lot cleaner. By golly, it was even worth a visit!
Unfortunately, New York is a very Left-Wing Place. The wealthy Bill Ayers-type Lefties living there knew they were in trouble, so they deigned to let Rudy do his thing. After Rudy restored order and sanity, they then promptly turned on him like the treacherous rabid commie-loving dogs they actually are.
The Blacks turned on him because he was tough on crime, the Jewish Liberals turned on him because he wasn't a Jewish Liberal, The Hispanics turned on him because he was tough on their lawless neighborhoods, The Irish and Italians in the City Unions turned on him because he fought'em, the school system turned on him, and he was in grave danger of having to retreat to Staten Island, which is still inhabited by some kinds of people Americans might recognize.
If 9/11 had not occurred, Rudy would probably have been lynched! Fuggedaboutit. Completely normal. Nowadays, this is what commonly happens to any normal white man in America who just does his job properly. Since Bloomberg (whose picture is in the Dictionary under RINO and also under Jewish Liberal) took over, the progress Rudy made toward having this seething urban mess rejoin America has been set back 150 years. Fire the incompetent SOBs? Hell no! Bloomie will be osculating the hindquarters of every incompetent affirmative action front end loader driver in the union.
IMHO, NYC voters are major ani and New York City should be separated as a new State, so New York State, which is a beautiful place inhabited by some great people could rejoin the human race, American Branch. NYC? Since the Liberals love Chavez for Life in Venezuela, wet their pants for an interview with Fidel, and think Barack is the greatest thing since canned Okra, why don't they like the idea of Rudy as Mayor for Life?
