It looks like it might be that time again -- time for snowfall and that means it's time to get the chairs, cones, beat up furniture and everything else out to mark your parking spot. If you're a Chicagoan you know exactly what I'm talking about. This is the practice of "dibs," marking your spot with an item after you took the time to shovel out the snow. But now the whole dibs piece is being debated on social media, so Chi-Town's activity is being exposed on a much larger scale.
I was reading the comments from some of the posts and everybody has their opinion as to how dibs works but I say if it's a public walkway or street or area, nobody should be able to block a parking space, whether they shoveled it or not. It's public homies, you can't claim the public space. And by the way, "dibs" doesn't just happen in Chicago, it happens in other cities too.
