It's basically the idea that if you shovel out your parking spot after a snowfall, you should get the spot when you come back home. Sounds fair, right?
And then it goes to the extreme.
I get it for a quick run to the store the day after a decent snow. 3 days after a 6" snow? Put your junky old kitchen chairs and milk crates back in your garage. You're embarrassing yourselves, here.
But, I guess if you leave your wife sitting out in the chair, and she's got THAT look on her face waiting for you to get back, well, go for it, big guy.
Do any any other cities have this type of thing? I'm lucky that I've got a garage spot in my condo (if "lucky" means having a separately deeded parking space with its own mortgage) so that I don't really have to deal with it.
