This will be such a wonderful memory this will be for the kids.
Their reactions are cute
And for him
And my axe?
And my sled.
And my hat!
My wife is in my phone as 'a real battle axe' as a norm macdonald tribute and she doesnt appreciate it. This comment wasnt asked for.
I think it will be too
Where I plow there is no hill for kids to play or slide down so I went with a backhoe and pushed all the snow in one spot seen the kids play on the hill all winter and I would top it off every chance I got
You my friend are awesome.
Not all kings wear crowns, some smile well driving a backhoe.
When I was a kid, the best spots were those with giant parking lots. The plows would typically push all the the snow from the lot into a big pile which would be perfect for playing!
The plowman in my little home town used to do this for us. It was amazing.
RIP mitten 🥊
The kid in the very back in the camo beanie makes me fucking cackle
Your username made me chuckle. I hope you actually do get sent groots, hopefully most of them in the form of ascii art, but I suspect it’s mostly groot faces drawn on penis.
Instead of just turning his head he moves his whole body lmao
It’s like Michael Keaton’s Batman! 😆
I came to the comments to say the same thing! Such a darling childhood-specific thing.
Idk, still looking like that as an adult. Didn't notice it until someone else mentioned I had a tilt when talking to someone.
It’s because the snow is bright as hell
Just wear sunglasses. Always have, even since I was a kid. Snow is crazy bright, like sand but even crazier. You wear them with the later, so why not the former?
I live on the gulf coast and used to vacation to the Poconos to snowboard. Our beaches here are a very big sought after tourist destination because of how white they are. I mean bright white. You must wear the sunglasses. But, I can say how I was very surprised to see that I NEEDED tinted goggles to snowboard the first time I went
As someone who lives in Pennsylvania I find it crazy that people travel that far to vacation here lol. Which mountain(s) would you go to?
As someone who lives in NJ, I can’t believe people drive from the city to ski mountain creek when southern NY isn’t much further.
I love the beaches. Destin
Whoaaa you just exploded my brain 😳 this is why I, as a short person who has to look up at everyone and everything, does not like wearing hats with bills. People who never look up probably don’t realize how annoying that is 😂
Fireworks, Gandalf? Fireworks?
What i learnedoverseas in country is kids are kids man and people are just people.
I don't wanna be a dad but man does seeing kids just smile and be able to enjoynlife bring my soul some peace..
Really at 22 dude I figured out the secret to life really is just enough to live decently and love.
This. Also, the short pause to understand that an adult actually said yes and is doing what they want them to do. The domino effect of each kid then realizing and celebrating is so fun.
The earnest expressions, you know their day is ruined otherwise.
Foreals, had the joy of a dozen children in his hands
I know exactly the one you’re talking about. How miserable must a person be to do something like that
Imma just save the link for another time vids like that make me mad lbs
push button, get high.
temper your shot of joyous brotherhood and solidarity with children with some bilious and impotent rage at a petty tyrant destroying a child's artwork.
the internet was a mistake.
Choose joy. Seek it out. Create it. Limit the time you spend viewing content with a likelihood of angering you, if possible. Joy is a form of resistance.
I said, choose joy. Do it. Or else…
Sigh. That woman needs therapy, trying to be compassionate but I don't know how you can heal someone who is that callous and petty
We used to have a chalk drawing contest at Easter in the neighbourhood.
As soon as it ended the neighbour across the street would come out with water and a brush and remove the chalk at the sidewalk infront of her drive way.
She must be so terrified of getting the chalk in the garage.
What kind of heel would do that to a little kid?? Announcement, all kids are welcome to draw all over my driveway and sidewalk, any time! Plenty of chalk is always on my porch.
What a garbage excuse of a human being.
If you can remember being small, that's a lot of power.
Plot twist: moments later he plowed dozens of kids
He's not Epstein dude
Let's not Gaetz-keep the plowing.
Reminds me of the infamous Snow Plow Man from Snow Day
Hated to this day
Also: "TRAB PU KCIP"
Chris Elliott ❤
"Aww come on!" and "yay!" are the same in every language.
I'm gonna add my countries expressions.
"Owww komm schon/bitte!" And "Juhuuu/Jippie!"
Jippie ki yay, mutterficker
Damn dude. This killed me! Thank you.
It‘s so much worse. McClane says „Schweinebacke“, which means pig‘s cheek, but is also a very not hard hitting insult. Sounds cringey as hell too.
Lmao the “Jippie!” reminds me of the German kid with the cola playing Fortnite meme
Leute meine Mutter hat mir einfach erlaubt, dass ich mir wieder eine Cola kaufen darf! :D
Ich hatte aber leider nicht genug Geld und hab mir leider nur eine "Ja!"-Cola gekauft. :(
Aber jetzt kann ich Cola trinken und Trios zocken! :D
Those similar expressions also exist in Spanish as far as yuju and yupi.
Full translate of "abi lütfen" is something like "sir please". Abi means big brother but idk if there is a word that means abi in same context in english
The fun part is "yay" is such a Hollywood effect. The kids celebrating with "yay" but it is not even a Turkish expression.
- big bro please could you not remove the snow here pleaaaase????
- but I got a complaint from here (meaning he HAS to remove it)
- cmon big bro is it really that important please can't you just leave it??
- alright I won't touch it, see you around.
Edit: yooo this is the most upvote I've ever gotten, thanks for all the awards and likes
"YEAAAAA!!"... that i understood!
Thank you for the rest of the translation!
What language is it?
Wow, it really sounded Russian to me. Never would've guessed Turkish
Russian would be a lot softer and harsher at the same time.
To me Turkish sounds like how a "default" language should sound - all the sounds flowing through the whole speech system, easy enough to be recreated by a child.
But Russian sounds like someone made a language and thought "If it will be this easy, I'll run my mouth too fast and get in trouble. I need way more obstructions in there. And then a lot of soft silly sounds just to amuse myself while I suffer."
You are thinking of Polish, kurwa.
That’s a surprisingly good explanation lol
IMO Turkish is the most beautiful language - do any others do the thing where the endings change to match the primary vowel of the root word? Like you said, it just flows.
Agreed. I spent a little bit of time learning Turkish and the consistency and "engineered" nature of modern turkish made it a pleasure to learn, but that it sounds so great spoken (by others) makes it magical.
It's called vowel harmony. If I am not wrong, Finnish has it too.
Yes, you're correct! Finnish does indeed have it, making it very tricky for native speakers to pronounce certain loan words, such as 'olympialaiset' (Olympic Games) that have both front and back vowels, often resulting in 'olumpialaiset' (or as a joke, 'ölympiäläiset').
Overall it seems like many Turkic and Uralic languages (including Finnish and Hungarian), as well as Mongolian and Korean have vowel harmony, though how it functions differs.
Ah yes that's it, thank you!
Im suprised to hear that bcuz im turkish and every foreign friend i asked told me it sounded terrible lol.But they only heard me speaking with my other turkish friends and we dont exactly talk kindly to each other(a lot of swearing and insulting) so i hope thats the reason
Have you heard Welsh? It’s what Elvish is based off of in LoTR and is so cool sounding
Russian's love to suffer, they never want to make things easy.
Russian sounds like everyone's struggling with acid reflux.
I'm just a random American and Turkish was my immediate first guess, doesn't sound Russian at all
i swear to god i thought they were scottish.
İm turkish and only activated sound at the last second so i thought it was russian too although subconsciously i did realize it was turkish
> İm turkish
hiç tahmin etmezdim 🤣
I grew up with a lot of Turkish people but I only realized when I heard the "tamam" lol
What?! For some reason that really sounded like a heavy British accent and I just thought the audio was too shit for me to be able to make it out.
I was guessing Scottish.
You got it wrong you roasted eggplant. You put the A before the A in "YEAAAAA!!"
>but I got a complaint from here (meaning he HAS to remove it)
It would kill me if he got in any real trouble for this. I'm extra glad he got this on video because anybody who sees this is immediately going to take the children's side.
I'm sitting over here wanting to see what it was he was supposed to plow.
Is he fucking over a block's worth of everyday citizens who just want to get out and go to the grocer?
\>wanting to see what it was he was supposed to plow.
Must...resist..making...a your mum joke...
“ Now go tell your parents why this isn’t plowed but you kids have fun, i’m taking this video for insurance lol”
It really is a completely different world in Turkey. Very hard place to live if you are in a hurry or are business oriented.
Great place to enjoy life though. A lot of fresh foods and delicious cousine. People are very nice, low crime, low cost of living, and cities are very sanitary.
Fire me, put me in prison if you must, but I cannot be the evil guy for those wholesome kids.
Is “big bro” a Turkish term of endearment or was it his older/larger brother?
I learnt it's a way to address an older man you don't know. If the man is significantly older, you say "uncle". They also use it in Korean, but in a slightly different way.
If the person you’re referring to is a man and is older than you but not very old, you refer him as big bro. If he Is much older then you refer as uncle. The same goes for big sister and aunt. It’s matter of respect. You’d be seen disrespectful if you don’t use these when addressing someone older (it’s for daily talk. I mean you don’t use this at office place)
Especially when you’re begging said man to leave your sledding hill alone lol.
AWWW, They called him Big Bro?? I can't. Heart warming.
It’s a matter of respect in turkey
Yeah, same thing in Korea. If you're talking to a guy or girl older than you, they're immediately big bro or big sis.
It is an existential crisis day for an Asian when you're suddenly called "uncle" or "auntie" by younger strangers.
flashback to 19yo jungkook being [absolutely shellshocked](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXCWKUxVlWU) at fans calling him "oppa" 😂
In a lot of languages you see "Big Bro" as a term of respect. Similarly you hear "Aunt" and "Uncle" a lot even if completely unrelated.
You forgot the couple “you’re the maaan!” At the end.
I second this
You know the driver was thinking back to when he was a kid and was sledding in the same area and didn’t want it plowed. Good on him.
Or he’s seen the movie with the giant snowstorm and saw how scary children can be with snow as their weapons. He won by taking a L
The kid with the piece of plastic for a sled is my favorite. Resourcefulness lvl 1,000!
It’s super common to “sleigh” with thick garbage bags or with BAKING TRAYS :) (I mean in Turkey :))
When I operated a ski lift in Vermont in the 90's I kept a cafeteria tray in my lift shack because every morning and every afternoon I had to hike up the mountain to put up (or take down) my warning signs.
Easily, the best part of my day was sledding back down on that tray when I was finished.
Would you recommend working on a ski resort? I have daydreams about fucking off to rutland working at killington
I was in my early 20's so it was fun. Mostly my friends and I just did it for the free season passes lol.
The pay was shit, and there was something pessimistic about arriving for work before the sun rises and then leaving for work after it sets, but since we mostly worked 4/10s we had 3 days off a week to ski/board to our hearts content.
If you are young and single, and can convince some friends to also sign up, then I definitely recommend it.
A lot of resorts have been hiring lifties from nations in the southern hemisphere because it's a seasonal job and their summer vacation. So if you're a young wealthy person from Australia who prefers the cold, have I got the job for you.
And now you tell us, you even earned money having fun? That‘s not fair :)
Same in the US.
Any college town that gets snow will find trays missing from the dining halls the next day. :)
Can confirm that baking trays are a multinational solution. Kitchen spray makes you go faster.
I’m having visions of Clark Griswold going for the amateur recreational saucer sled land speed record thanks to a “new, non-caloric, silicon based kitchen lubricant” and I can’t stop giggling. Watch out for cars!
You just reminded me that when I was a kid the custodian at our school would leave heavy cardboard boxes out by the dumpster (instead of throwing them away) on snowy days at recess so kids without proper sleighs could join the fun. I had forgotten all about that, thank you for reminding me.
Same in Germany. And probably everywhere else in the world. Snow + Kids = maximum creativity unleashed
I think that’s common everywhere there’s snow and poor kids. I grew up in the southern US and we did the same. Garbage pail lids too lol.
My dad has stories of sledding down hills and taking out baby pine trees when he was a kid! Let's just say some of those trees didn't lay down like his friends thought they would! Lol
Talking about dads… My dad grew up in a small town with lots of snow. Probably due to some mistake, their school received a bunch of skis with the Marshall aid. Yes ski instead of school supplies. But they had a cool principle who didn’t store away the boxes, he just handed out everything and let them figure it out. So somehow all these little farmer kids learned how to ski 😂 Winter sports are quite a luxury in Turkey, so imagine my posh mom’s shock when she saw my self-taught dad on the slope with his very original style!
My dad tells me he had to do this with his school books and torn shoes for hours up and down mountains each day to get to school and back. We should be so lucky he said.
We used to use broken down cases or beer for sleds when we were really little.
My cousins and I used to use those big circular cookie sheets
My mom says at her college they used to take the cafeteria trays and go sledding with them
Couldn't find one at the stores the other day so my kids got some cardboard sleds to play in the snow today.
We just came back from sledding, there were kids using plastic laundry baskets and garbage can lids. Kids gonna kid, in the most wholesome way.
Turks really love kids. I was once in a store where my son and his cousin were grabbing all the purses and I was telling them to stop and the owner came up to me and looked me straight in the eye and said in my store kids can do what they want. We still laugh about it.
Turks are really nice people in general I've noticed. They love animals too
I’d definitely come back for more to that shop! The owner really knows how to deal with customers 😁
In my many years of retail, 'smother them with kindness' was my go-to for almost any situation good or bad. Avoids stress and drama and you can genuinely make people happy. Which is dope.
Not retail for me but general service industry stuff, this 100%. The best part is if someone’s an asshole anyway you can sleep well knowing you’re not as miserable as them and it definitely helps (some) with burnout.
> The best part is if someone’s an asshole anyway you can sleep well knowing you’re not as miserable as them
You're right. This was huge for me too. I've seen how some asshole customers completely ruined the day of a colleague because the colleague didn't know how to let it go. You learn a lot and a lot about yourself in retail/service.
Turks are such family orientated folks, they treat animals with such love too. Kids and fur babies,, Such gentle kind souls!
I was born in Turkey and lived there until I was around three and my parents moved back to the US. I was very blond back then, and according to my parents, people would come up to me on the street and touch my hair for good luck. I have a picture somewhere of me with a random group of Turkish soldiers who'd been working in the middle of nowhere. I don't remember it, but my parents said they were totally fawning over me.
On the other hand, my parents did come home from a night out a couple of times to find the maid had put me to bed with a board strapped to my head to give me the fashionable flat back of the head look, so there was that....
So sweet. Do you have a flat head? I didn’t realize it was a fashion lol.
I think it was more of a rural thing by that time (late 60's).
It's also entirely possible my parents were bullshitting me, something that would be entirely possible, especially with my father. So take it with a grain of salt.
Had to break it to you dude but natural blonde hair is also veeeery common with us Turks but its very possible you got your hair ruffed a little or something, not every behavior is like a tradition or a culture thing maybe those who did made it uo
'Touch blonde hair for luck' isn't a thing in Turkey and I wish people wouldn't make up stuff like that. Turkish people (especially older folks) will 'touch' a kid's head or ruffle their hair as a love gesture - nothing to do with you being blonde (being blonde isn't weird or outstanding in TR).
Lol, having been a blond Turkish kid myself one of my favourite memories is how a police officer saw me looking at his gun fascinated when I must have been 9 or 10. He unloaded it and gave it to me so I could have a better look.
My mother was not amused, not at all. Neither my babaanne. I'll also never forget how ashamed that poor policemen looked when those two women were scalding him. He suddenly looked 10 years old himself.
> had put me to bed with a board strapped to my head to give me the fashionable flat back of the head look
>the owner came up to me and looked me straight in the eye and said in my store kids can do what they want.
At this point I feel like my younger brother would have probably proceeded to shit in one of the purses and hit other kids (well, maybe just me) with it.
I want to move to turkey now
Lots of europeans spending their retirement there. For people from western countries who can take their pension there it's a great opportunity (getting the same money, but getting 3 times as much for it).
So, maybe in a couple of decades?
These special moments make the best memories
The kids seem happy in the end. Good man
Bet the snowplow dude would have been reminded of his days as a kid playing on the snow.
The lad in the yellow jacket says" you are the man abi" (big brother) lol
this is what pure joy looks like
I don’t speak the language, but I understood it all.
Some poor shmuck trying to get to work... "how did they miss just my street."
And you know this spot is going to be known as the spot where kids play so every year the resident around will have to deal with this.
Yay!!! is the same in every language when said by a kid.
"Hold on kid. Let me get my phone then ask me again".
Very sweet but WHERE’S YOUR HAT AND SCARF, YOUNG MAN!?
I needed this. So sweet. What language are they speaking?
Why am I tearing up?
Right? I think it's because the kids were ready to be disappointed. And as adults, we are also used to other adults being disappointing. So this was nice!
Also, we just watched a beautiful childhood memory being formed!
I know reddit can really hate on a happiness circle jerk, but man. The boys face at the front looks so ..... ready to be disappointed. He's asking something it doesn't look like he thinks is going to happen, but he's giving it a shot anyways. The older I get and the more experiences I have, I'm slowly realizing that things that seemed dramatic and big when I was young maybe weren't that dramatic and big in the grand scheme of things. But because of how little life experience I had at the time, those things felt and *were* big... big feelings, of big joy and big sorrow and big hurt. Idk maybe I'm just in a sappy mood (better than a meltdown, my therapist says 😅), but that's just.... that's a really nice moment. It's nice to see the little victories and kindnesses and the joy there is to still be had in the day to day, despite everything we're living through. I'm glad they got to sled a bit more, I'm glad for kind hearts and happy kids.
I lived in Turkey several years. All the Turks I've seen absolutely love little kids. The kids are saying, "Big brother, big brother...." and then he agrees not to plow. I miss that wonderful place.
Flash forward to Action News at 5 with the reporter talking to upset adults complaining that the city never plows their street
See sometimes all you have to do is ask
He just lost his job
The snow plow man in the movie snow day would never do that.
I love how this could be any kid in any country and we all can relate no matter where we’re from
Snow days are frequent in Turkey but they get tagged on to summer vacation so kids go a little wild to seize the day.
The kids parents cant drive to work, but the kids are happy😁
I must be getting old. I'm thinking about the adults that want it plowed to drove their cars through there.
Nice to be nice, awesome stuff
That was REALLY cute
