Stick Figures

First, this blog is a total copy of at least one other blog I've read, not to mention the picture above is from another blog about the same subject. Second, there is a very good chance that one of you reading this (of the two people that may read this blog) have this type of thing on your car. Sorry, don't me to offend you, but you're dumb.

Ok, I try to think the best of people, so I don't necessarily see danger in the man filling up his gas tank next to me at the gas station or parked behind me in the Meijer parking lot. Also, I'm obviously not overly protective of my privacy, seeing as how I have a blog and a facebook account and even a twitter account, which I never use, but still. But seriously, why would anyone put these stickers on the back of their car? First of all, they scream "a woman owns this car." I don't mean to be sexist or anything, but how many men do you know that have stickers like these on their cars? Like I said, I'm not overly cautious but I still don't want Mr. Rapist man to be like..."hey, this looks like a good car to hang around and wait for unsuspecting woman to come to." Also, the stickers are not just cute little decorations for your car. "Hey Mr. Rapist, not only am I a woman, but I have two young children who may or may not be with me, how does that sound? Oh don't worry, I don't have a big dog hiding in the back seat or anything, because as you can see from my cute little kitten sticker, I only have a pet cat...and a gold fish."

What are the benefits of these stickers? "Oh, I think that is my old high school boyfriend behind me in his car...that will really stick it to him that I'm obviously happily married with two kids and a dog and we are all having fun in our various activities as pictured on the back of my awesome minivan....take that for not taking me to senior prom!"

I find some car statements funny - I like the one about my dog being smarter than your honor student - but if you're going to go for the whole stick figure thing, this is what I would do...

I can not stand these!! Especially when parents put their kids NAMES under the picture.... "hi there _______, your mom wanted help in the grocery store" (why you would leave the kid alone in the car, i dono...but still) Just screams for something bad to happen!!
