LOL Nice! And don't get me started on Code Enforcement! Apparently they have the right to come on the property I paid for/Pay taxes for, move car covers, and fine me if they have expired tags.
Great post! I was expecting to get a punch line at the end. But instead of laughing, I just got a sad-disappointed feeling when I realised how close to the truth it was.

One problem with the story though:
God promised the Earth would never again be destroyed by a flood.
Genesis 8:21 :icon_mrgreen:
Very funny and of course sadly right on. Government bureaucracy at its best (or worst).
