She catches Olivia in the act and decides the best course of action is to leave a sign on the can, indicating others to leave it alone. Moments later, the rain stops, to Grundgetta's dismay. She decides to close the can to prevent any sunlight coming in, but the passing neighbors read the sign and keep opening it.
