Indiana Teenager Gets Life Lesson as Snowplow Undoes His Shoveling Work

A teenager got a lesson in what his dad called “life’s unfair realities” when a passing snowplow undid all his hard shoveling work, re-covering the path outside his driveway as it came by.

Chris Whalen, of Noblesville, said he asked his 13-year-old son Jack to clear the driveway entrance on February 15 after some snow had piled up there from previous snowplows going through.

“Neither one of us expecting the plows would go through again,” he told Storyful. “When I heard the plow go through again, I immediately laughed internally, not initially realizing our Ring camera had caught the entire event.”

The video shows a dejected Jack throw down his shovel in despair after the plow sets him back to square one.

“I let him know I felt his pain, but I still thought it was funny,” Whalen said. “I was immediately humored by his unscripted reaction.” Credit: Chris Whalen via Storyful
