Everyone else is trying their best to keep warm and away from the snowy weather in many temperate countries these days because it seems that spring is still almost as cold as winter but one guy has gone viral for clearing snow from his yard while wearing just shorts and gloves! LOL.
This prankster dad of four just had this crazy idea to make his wife laugh by clearing their driveway while wearing just a pair of cut-off denim shorts and a pair of gloves. Crazy, isn’t he?
Patrick Schmidt of Wausau, Wisconsin woke up on Saturday morning and grabbed the first pair of pants he saw in his closet. Shorts aren’t exactly the best piece of clothing to use in the snow but Patrick was too amused to care.
“They (the shorts) were the only ones there. I went downstairs, had breakfast with the family and I knew that I could snow blow or I could go change and I was like ‘oh, it’s only 27, so I can probably just do it with a pair of gloves and boots on’,” he recalled with a laugh.
“I figured it would entertain my wife, I didn’t really think much of it and I didn’t really think much of it, we live on a little cul-de-sac.”
But his ridiculous photo would soon be plastered all over social media after his neighbors spotted his antics.
“I was cooking breakfast looking out my window to see my neighbor shirtless in cutoff jean shorts,” Nicole Thomas revealed.
Once she stopped laughing her heart out, she immediately ordered her husband to take a photo of their crazy friend.
Mark Thomas drove his truck near Patrick’s house to take a better photo; he later defended his actions, saying he was only following his wife’s orders! LOL. The families are actually close friends. According to Mark and Nicole, they weren’t really surprised when they saw the shirtless, short-wearing Patrick plowing the snow because he’s actually such a prankster.
“I saw the truck and I was like what is he doing? Then I knew he was taking my picture, but I had no idea this was all going to happen,” Patrick recalled.
But Nicole was unrepentant. She loved the photo of her crazy neighbor. LOL.
“Can you out-do this? I don’t know. We’ll have to see what he comes up with I guess,” she said.
Would Patrick do it again? Probably not! But he’s actually glad he did it, even just once in his life.
“Nobody wants it to snow this much in April, but what are you going to do? It’s here, we live here, no one forced us to be here so, may as well get out enjoy it, have a little fun with it,” Patrick concluded.
