Down the Hall on Your Left

This site is a blog about what has been coasting through my consciousness lately. The things I post will be reflections that I see of the world around me. You may not agree with me or like what I say. In either case – you’ll get over it and I can live with it if it makes you unhappy. Please feel free to leave comments if you wish .

The Choices Are Almost Endless, Unfortunately

WHENEVER I AM DRIVING AROUND TOWN lately I’m seeing something that makes me wonder a bit. Not a lot, just a bit. What I’m seeing are those stick figure decals on the rear windows of cars. In the beginning these decals or stickers were showing just your basic nuclear family: Mommy, Daddy, and a couple of kids.

It didn’t take long before someone added the family dog to the lineup. After that the floodgates were opened. More kids, Granny and Grandpa. If there had been a divorce the decal would show a space with a Vacancy sign.

I spent most of a quarter hour doing extensive research into this and about all I learned was that some people have incredibly bad taste.

I have downloaded a few examples of some that I thought wee funny, but I left out the ones that might be considered obscene in places other than Las Vegas and The Vatican. Or parts of Indiana and Puerto Rico.

I saw one that was on a car from Utah. That decal showed what might be considered a stereotypical large Mormon family. Of course that could also be a good and fertile family from Saudi Arabia. I make that judgment based on the fact that the Royal Family consists of approx. 15,000 little Princes and Princesses – aka “Potential Usurpers of the throne.” A decal on the back of the Head Dudes Limo would cover every window in the car.

I don’t know where one buys these things. I’ve stopped in some Auto Parts stores and the closest I can find are “Baby on Board” and Confederate flags. My best guess would be some sites that are deep within the Dark Web or should be.

If English is either not your language of preference or comprehension there are stickers available in other tongues. I liked this one. Of course there are others of a more predatory nature

I doubt that I would ever want one of these things on my car – a docile little Toyota. OK, maybe I would get one but it would have to be something to match my personality and sense of what passes for humor. Maybe something like this. We don’t have a passel of kids, but what the heck. You gotta have some fun in life. 

I suppose there could be worse things to stick on the back of one’s car. Those are usually on sale at the Truck Stops along America’s highways. And a lot of those involve body parts both human and bovine. I’m not going to go there.

If  you want to put a sticker or decal or whatever on your car – go ahead, I won’t try to stop you. all I would ask is that you use a little common sense. not like me.

Some things should be left at home.
