For the past few months, a skip has been occupying a parking-space next to a domestic garage not far from Mrs Jebec’s house. The Jebecs have always liked to park one or other of their cars where the skip has lately been, and I’ve been told they believe they have the exclusive legal right to do so. I don’t know who had the skip placed there. Whoever they may be, they don’t seem to have been putting much into the skip. The lopped-off trunk of a small tree is one thing that was put in, quite a while ago.
This morning, a lot of additional items were dumped into the skip; and this afternoon, the skip was removed. About thirty seconds after that, Mrs Jebec parked Mr Jebec’s car in the parking-space. She strode back to her house, with an “at last” expression on her face.
