It's tough to make calls like that! You made the right choise though because if they make a law for you to inforse it applys to them to! They aren't just ammune to everything because they have some power!

What 18 said. If the Governor fires you, sue to your heart's content. And anyone who says "oh typical American move", you explain to me in your little cheese eating surrender monkey country how you get your job back, or get severance, without suing.

Well damn. You learn something new every day. I honestly had only heard it on BBC, I don't get to watch much tv on Le boats.

#1 how were you to know? was there anything on the car indicating who it was? and who was he to park illegally? you were right to do your job .

Just because hes the governor doesnt give him the right to park infront of a fire hydrent. Im sure he'll under stand. You were just doing your job after all. :)

something to consider though it is only his forth day and i am not sure but most jobs dont need a reason to fire someone that soon so maybe thats why he cannot sue?

you're correct but feom seeing what happens from working at ny job that deals with parking the hifger ups dont care they feels they can park anywhere they feel like it and god forbid they get ticketwd or towed, tgey call and threaten to fire the director and whatnot. so yeat its a bitch.

Well, we have a labour board that deals with those things, so you just take your case to the labour board and they will get the company to pay up. No need to sue. Regardless, this is not an FML. This is GFY(good for you, not the other GFY). OP, you did your job exactly the way you should have. As others have stated, the governor is not above the law. His car was illegally parked and he completely deserved to have it towed and impounded. If your co-workers try to give you grief, tell them to

13-After their spelling errors made me twitch, I then checked this person's profile and I saw that this person is 22 and not 5. I'm now under the impression that they are mentally handicapped, and therefore I will not correct them.

I don't think even grammar nazi's could fix this disaster. I must admit the funniest part of this comment were the continuous spelling mistakes.

That's a dilemma for sure. Enforce laws which were made by corrupt politicians, or enforce a law on a politician (who is probably corrupt since he is a politician).

3... Gave you a thumbs up. ( rational comment is rational) Though I must say, my IQ dropped a bit after reading that.

55 - plural "s" on Nazis with an apostrophe?? Maybe sweep in front of yours own door first, hm? Agreed though, at 22 and as a native one should expect better. Maybe the Spelling Bee wasn't her strong point and she's good at math... OP did nothing wrong, I agree!

That is disgusting. He killed someone and got a fine? He should have been jailed for man slaughter.

#212- Nowhere did I say I was perfect. Nor did I correct the commenter. All I said was that the spelling mistakes made the comment funny. I was never great at grammar, but I have a general idea of how to write properly. So think before you go attacking someone who did nothing wrong.

Also, no apostrophe in "Nazis," as "Nazi's" is possessive. Oh, and it's capitalized. -Der Fuhrer of Grammar

263- you are correct, but I would like to point out that it would be Fuehrer, as an "e" would take the place of the missing umlaut.

Reply

212 while you're attacking someone for spelling/grammar mistakes, maybe you should check your own as well. You should have said "your own" not "yours own". Let's look like a know-it-all bitch, eh?

Reply

Yeah, what if there was a fire? If OP hadn't had the car towed, the firefighters wouldn't be able to get to the fire hydrant. Then there would be even more problems!

Reply

Don't forget to sharpie a giant "?" on the bag first though. But, yes, OP did nothing wrong and I just hope she isn't attacked/fired for that.

yeahh umm if i was op i would garage sale all my stuff and make a run for another state.

You did the right thing. What makes the governor so special as to allow them to illegally park their vehicle, causing a safety hazard? Remember, you serve the people, not their politicians. Also, if that were me, I'd feel pretty badass about it.

Congratulations on owning the governor, you have earned two internets for that. The guy could be the emperor of the universe; if the law forbids parking next to hydrants, then the vehicle has to be towed. Just because the guy you had towed was the governor doesn't mean he deserves special treatment like that. He's just as accountable as anyone.

Yea just like when Arnold got a ticket for parking in a handicapped parking in California, it's a mala prohibita law, serves that douche right fore thinking he's higher than the law, governor smoverner!

Just two internets, you cheap bastard? OP did good!...of course it sounded like she didn't know it was the governor's car until AFTER she had it towed, but still has to count for something.

You're definitely going to get the electric chair for this one. You're fucked, go ahead and write out your will, cause you're going down. If anything he'll make you his assistant for doing such a great job and making him payback a small fraction of what he's stolen from your paycheck.

Payed? What's that? Ohhhhhh, you mean paid..no I don't, but if you could work something out with the FML gods I would greatly appreciate it.
