We Need to Wash Out this Habit

I don’t live within city borders, so I guess in a lot of ways that keeps me from really understanding city life. But I like to think that I understand most of its rules (minus the rules about parking with confusing signs so that out-of-towners help fund the annual Philadelphia Police Department’s Holiday Party). But I saw something last night while walking the streets of Society Hill that made me very curious.

I understand that we aren’t allowed to stand in the street to hold a parking spot for a person, and my understanding is we are also not allowed to put trash cans in the street or lawn chairs in the street for the same purpose. But a washing machine?!? I’m not sure that there is anything in the books that specifically prevents a person from putting an appliance in the street to save a parking spot in front of your house.

Hmm… Maybe I better just stick to the suburbs.
