The city of Chicago has more than 4,000 miles of streets, so it’s no wonder that some neighborhoods aren’t plowed right away following a big snowfall. That means residents are forced to dig out their own cars.
After expending great effort to clear a path, people want to save their parking spot so they don’t have to dig out again. “Dibs” is an unwritten rule and the consequences can be extreme for those who violate it.
Here are a few examples of how people call dibs on their parking spot in Chicago after a big snow storm.
May the farce be with you!
