Are you familiar with that strip between the sidewalk and the curb that you find in many places? Ours has rocks; sometimes there’s grass, sometimes it’s pavement.
Here’s the debate: my husband says that it’s rude to walk over that. He will either make me let him out of the car before I park, or make me move the car before he gets in so that he doesn’t step on it. I say that in most places the city or neighborhood owns that strip and the home owner maintains it. Regardless, one is supposed to exit your car over that strip to get to the sidewalk.
Note that I am talking about urban or suburban settings, not the country, although even then I’ve got a big ol’ :rolleyes:.
Please settle this heated marital dispute*.
*Disclaimer: Not heated. I’ve just never heard of this before, and have been merrily using that strip my entire life.
