As a city, we've reached a new era in the post dibs wake of Chiberia, and found more things to fight with our neighbors over. Last week's thaw and immediate refreeze has brought out a plethora of passive aggressive notes throughout Chicago's neighborhoods and people are now fighting over frozen dog poop and sidewalk ice instead of street parking. And by using all caps on these notes, residents are conveying to anyone and everyone passing by that they are really pissed off and cannot take it anymore. Our theory? If your sidewalk is frozen and you have the ability to salt it, then just take care of it. Dog poop is a different story - if you're not picking up after your dog, then you're just a straight up asshole.
