Street Junk Begins Popping Up After Snowstorm
That’s all it takes and all of a sudden some neighborhood Chicago streets are awash with lawn chairs, milk crates, five gallon buckets and all sorts of other junk.
Even though the several inches of white stuff melted away in 48 hours, selfish Chicago drivers still pulled their crap from their garages and basements to pathetically “reserve” the little piece of the street they allegedly worked so hard to shovel out.
Some view what some people call dibs as a quaint little Chicago tradition like one website aptly called Chicagodibs.com, is devoted to photos documenting the practice. Others find dibs to be a boorish, self-centered excuse to drag litter onto the street.
