I used to work at a fire hydrant factory... you couldn't park anywhere near the place - S. Wright

What that means is that you cannot park in front of a fire hydrant. You will get a parking ticket, so if you work in a Fire Hydrant factory, then there are fire hydrants all over the place, even all over the parking lot, so therefore anywhere you park, you will get a parking ticket.
