Stick Figure Decals
Here's yet another thing I won't do if/when I become a parent:
I WILL NOT, under ANY circumstances, affix decals representing every member of my family to my vehicle.
This has been a trend for a while now, and every time I see a car with 10+ decals representing mommy, daddy, child #1, child #2, child #3, child #4, child #5, child #6, dog, cat, hamster, goldfish, monkey, iguana, etc., I want to shoot the person driving it.
Not only is it obnoxious, but it's tacky. It's worse than the bumper stickers that tell everyone on the road that your kid was "student of the day" at such-and-such school.
These decals are also perfect fodder for the serial killer looking to off as many people as possible in one fell swoop. Why anyone in their right mind wants to broadcast how many kids and pets they have to every Tom, Dick and Harry on the road is beyond me.
But maybe that's just my neurotic Jewish paranoia kicking-in.
In a word,
