How about you hold the bag and *I'll* shovel... My back damage will
freak in less than 10 minutes holding a bent position like that, and I
tend to scream very loudly when I get forcibly straightened up
afterward. Shoveling constantly moves so my back tolerates it much
And would you consider driving a school bus the equivalent of military
service? I used to have the route with juvenile hall, and have
literally had riots on the bus.
