We've all thought about it before. Why can't we just park in front of the fire hydrant? Do fire fighters really need all that space to hook up their giant hose? Is there really going to be a fire? Yeah, there is and your car is going to get screwed like the one above.

So yeah, I'm never going to park in front of a fire hydrant ever. Definitely. For sure. [Reddit via BuzzFeed]

I don't think this driver is getting screwed exactly.

Two things to note here: One, the car's owner was fortunate enough to have his/her windows down already so the fire fighters didn't have to smash in the windows, and two, they were kind enough to put something to keep the hose from scratching the car.

That said, not all fire fighters are this nice. I know I wouldn't mind smashing someone's window if it meant putting out a fire and saving a life.
