When the Governor's chauffeur parks the Governor's car in a No Parking Zone in front of the Post Office, Barney issues a ticket. Actually, he didn't realize it was the Governor's car until well into to the process and he then refused to back down. Mayor Stoner is outraged when he hears what they have done and he insists that Andy call the Governor's office and apologize. The Governor is in fact delighted that someone had the gumption to ticket his car and tells Andy and the Mayor that he will stop by Mayberry that very afternoon to congratulate Barney and shake his hand. Only problem is that no one tells Barney and when he hears the Governor is coming to Mayberry, he assumes the worse and that he's finished. Written by
