Breaking the Code / Law

May 7, 2009 at 10:04 PM (Humor, Politics, Rants, Wedding)

When I got home from work today I was shocked to see a “Notice of Violation” from the county in which we live taped to our front door.  Apparently we violated some sort of “Parking Standard” code when we had our wedding shower this past weekend.  We have a two car garage but in the midst of all the happenings had parked one of our vehicles in the yard temporarily.  Well, according to the code that we violated, “All vehicles/trailers/boats must be parked on a hardened/treated surface.  All tires must be on hardened/treated surfaces.”  The most disturbing part is that someone in the neighborhood must have reported us.  Wouldn’t it have been much more neighborly to slip a note into our mailbox?  Wouldn’t it have been neighborly for the reporter to just observe and see if the vehicle is moved before assuming we are converting our yard to a used car lot?  I mean we had wedding balloons tied to our mailbox for goodness sake.  Someone is a Scrooge, apparently.

According to the notice, they will perform a random inspection in the next 10 days to see if the violation has been removed.  The funny part is that the “violation” (i.e. car on the grass) wasn’t even present when they taped the notice to the door.  It seems as though the violation should be evident before an inspector can even formally give the notice.

Breaking the law!  Breaking the law!

What’s Up With These Crazy Fundamentalist Muslims?

EDIT:  After I wrote and posted this entry, this article was available on CNN.com.  I hate being right.

Well, before I get started ranting and raving like a lunatic, I am going state my warning to you all.  This post will be littered, nay, filled to the brim, with my opinion.  This is the only warning I’m going to give the faint of heart before proceeding.  Also, I’d like to give a shout out to Amazing Ben (no relation) at BadassOfTheWeek.com.  I’ve linked parts of his site wherever possible because it’s the best way to bring in historical references, but in a fun and foul mouthed way.
