It’s a hot Summer and Myra, the overbearing wife, needles her hubby into getting a nice cottage down at the beach. Is she happy? Of course not. She gripes at all the people at the public beach right out in front of their cozy love nest. What’s a selfish old shrew to do? Put up trespassing signs.
Even with the signs, Myra gripes, even though nobody is on the property, just on the public beach just off her property. When a young couple decides to resist the venomous old biddy, a battle of wills ensues. Who will win out in the battle of stubbornness? Poor hubby, George, is caught in the middle, giving in to every nitpicky detail of Myra’s request.
The young couple are within their rights, and technically not doing any harm as they keep their distance just off the property. Myra has her own idea of how to fight back. The big loser in the ordeal is George, and he has just about had all he can stand. Especially when the matter boils over to a court room. George finally takes charge to put the matter to an end. I have to say though, that his methods are just as extreme, but he certainly does end up with a life of peace and quiet.
