Cheap Entertainment

The other day upon returning home from grocery shopping, I witnessed a scene I thought happened only in Chicago. A young gal about 8 years of age was standing in the middle of a parking spot clearly trying to hold this space for her mother. As her mother was coming around to park, another car was ahead of her, and wanted the same space. The poor girl didn't know what to do, as these guys were honking, and yelling at her to move. Ah, but she was a stubborn one, well at least for a short time. She kept her stance. She just looked away as not to hear them, but the car was bigger, and it kept creeping toward her trying to squeeze into the space. By this time, the mother came around the corner, parked her car behind these guys, and walks out of the car, and starts yelling at this guy through his window and in typical Chinese fashion, people gather around for the entertainment value.

I was too much in a hurry to care about the outcome, though I am betting the guys won this round.
