“Why does Grandpa always put that chair in the street, Momma?” Linda asked.
“He doesn’t have any off-street parking for his car, and that’s a big problem for him in the winter when it snows,” Linda’s mother explained.
“But how does putting a small wooden chair on the street help with that?” Linda asked.
“That way people won’t park their car in that space when Grandpa’s car is not parked there.”
“Can’t someone just pick up the chair and move it and park their own car there?”
Linda smiled. “Seems the shotgun he aims at them discourages that.”
