Pet Peeves

**warning- if you are easily offended, then don't read this post**

Everyone has a few pet peeves...some of mine might be considered OCD as opposed to pet peeves but that is a whole different post.
This one thing has bugged me for a while, but I can't hold it in any longer. This "thing" was popular in Charlotte but apparently people in Knoxville love it even more.

What am I talking about...FAMILY DECALS!!!!!

This is not just a staple for the family van, it has now become popular on any and every vehicle. They have names/pictures for every family member, grandparents, nannies, and any pet you could EVER imagine! I am really happy that people have a large family and want the world to know all their names and their pet names...and the sports they play. BUT I'm not sure your back windshield should display your family portrait.

What if the Duggar's decided to put their family decal on the back of their car?? It would probably take a few cars to fit everyone.

As my dad would probably shouldn't do it b/c it might hurt your windshield or be a safety hazard.

If you have a family decal, I still love you...but it might go missing the next time I visit :)

Oooooh! I am so glad you said something about these dumb decals! They bug me too! Those AND the monogram decals that women love to put on their cars. Monogram your dish towels or your address labels but dont monogram your vehicle - tacky!

I can not stand these decals!! And ditto on what Emily said. I love me all things monogrammed but I draw the line at my car. Ridiculous.

Do I need to get my eyes checked or does family member #4 from the left go by "Boogers?!" Wow, how embarrassing.

Btw, we have a lot of the decals here too but I've never seen them with NAMES! Too funny.

The Bruces (but most likely the Mrs.) said...

The names are the best/worst part of this. Nevermind boogers, does the other one say like Alecheetos or something!? Becky, when you have a baby I will get you family decals AND a Baby On Board sticker :)

I just figured it was a kidnapper's dream. You already know the kid's name and their family.

But these are better than "My Child Is An Honor Student At Wherever Elementry."
