The Snow Plow Show Episode 817 – Dingtember Is Upon Us

After a 5 year kind of hiatus, Dingtember is finally back and probably won’t be shut down this year by a paranoid Brad. You can thank all the supporters of the shows for this, including iregretjumping, Jimmy S, Shrinkman, JT, and Holden M.J. In this episode I call businesses in shopping centers and do some secret ninja shit, ask for wifi passwords, and I even manage to do a pretty good impromptu car ding call.

Near the very end of the pranks segment I get RAIDED by the hotel front desk lady and it immediately gives me flashbacks of the random visits I got from probation for 5 years straight. Front desk lady claims this is a normal room check and has the clipboard to prove it. They’re just innocently checking the rooms and not there to spy on the residents to make sure they’re not up to shenanigans. Nevermind that I’ve only been here for a day now and I’m pretty sure they knew how damaged the room was before I arrived because they gave me the special meth head suite.

The lamp that she points out at first and I promise I didn’t do it is featured in the show art. You’ll notice that one side of it has been twisted 360 degrees and it makes me want to twist the other side to match it. There hasn’t been ANY wifi internet since I’ve arrived here, which is why I was asking about the ethernet jack on the wall. I still intend to go buy a USB-to-ethernet adapter so I can try it out just for fun. And even though I promised the maintenance guy I would report blue leakage, I was lying because I don’t work here.

  1. I know all about those flashbacks! Take care Mr. Carter. Don’t be discouraged, yet if it doesn’t feel right, then it’s probably not. Safe travels and thank you again.
