F*** my life impression

South Philly has a proud tradition of reserving parking spots with useless junk like buckets, folding chairs, and plastic containers from 12 packs of 2-gallon Pepsi bottles. With a snowstorm, this practice snowballs, for lack of a better term. Well after much deliberation and a horrid 2 hour stuck-in-the-snow experience, we decided to trash-up and save a spot. We used a big metal coat rack from Ikea. Someone must have gotten wise because both our spot and our coat rack were stolen.

It's "fuck everyone else day" in South Philly and it's trash day.

You can put it anywhere

The Honda CRV in this picture decided to just park in the middle of our street. I guess they figured no one could make it down our unplowed street anyway. Fortunately, the PPA begged to differ and ticketed them.

It's a snow day in South Philly and it's trash day. But not really. They haven't collected our trash in two weeks.

Shot in the back...over a matter of 80 dollars

A house about a block south of us has this sticker in its window. "Drop the plastic-covered couch mother fucker!"

It's "time to take out the trash" day in South Philly.
