Several times Ted has left it unattended and no one has known what to do with it. Once it caused a traffic jam outside the post office and no one could get through until he came back and moved it. Another time, when Ted went away to Scotland, he left it by itself in the middle of the village, the villagers had to cover it up and turn it into a small garden to help them win the best village competition.
