UR A LSR

i don't get rilled up all that often.

the above statement was a lie.

but every morning i pull into my office parking lot and i am greeted with quite possibly the most obnoxious vanity plate i have ever seen. i literally cringe when i see it.

i can't help that there is just something about vanity plates that make me twitch. they are the epitome of cheese. and a personal pet peeve of mine - don't judge, you have yours too.

i don't care if you SEWALOT, are a LNCHLDY, JRS WIFE, MISFIT or are CRAIZEEE.

i don't need to know how much you like butt sex or even if you are KNG OF AK *ahem* lebron james.

the only and i mean ONLY time a vanity plate is tolerable is when it is just single initials.

you are now as a reader of my blog, obliged to confess to me if you have a vanity plate. i'll judge you, but i'll still love you.

  1. What if it is single initials for your college and your favorite basketball player from the 90's jersey #???? :)

  2. I hate them too. Occasionally there is a funny one, but man. For the most part, they suck balls. That one especially!

  3. I sort of have it.
    It doesnt say anything but I have custom registration numbers, sort off.
    Usually people here have 4 digits in their plate. I only have 2, 73. the day and month of my birthday.

    does that count?

  4. You're not alone sister. I think they're the dumbest car accessories on the planet. I daydream about rear-ending them when I'm on the highway.

  5. Okay, okay...

    I used to have BRINGIT. It was from my dumber, street racing days.

  7. Haha. I JUST got the title of your post.

    I'm far too broke to have a vanity plate.

    I sort of judge vanity plate people, mostly young college kids whose parents shell out the extra bucks to make them feel special. Like, seriously. I'm sick of spoiled kids. :-P

  8. I saw you driving around with your "BLOGR" license plate - don't lie.

  9. I hate them too. My older brother has one that says "YO MNDO" which is Spanish text speak for "I RULE".

    Ugh. I hate it.

  10. I had a vanity plate.. it read LUV4BSB

    No - I'm not lying.

    I also still own them, even though I no longer use them.

  11. HAHA Narm's comment was the best.

    I hate those too, I am not going to pay to have a personalized plate. So stupid.

    I also hate people that put stickers all over their car. ! sticker is fine, 17 is not.

  12. In Illinois they are free provided you include a number, thus making them extremely prevalent.

    Whilst claiming residency in the 'Nois, my rides pimped "OSCEOLA1" and "BLAKE 22".

    Then I moved to Ohio and was forced to get a plain, old, everyman's plate full of random letters and numbers and absolutely no meaningful significance.

    *tear*

  13. my parents have one.

    It is "WOOKENT."

    Seriously.

    I know, but I can't divorce my parents now. They got it because they were done paying for college at Kent and Wooster.

  14. oof. i dont have one, and i agree with your sentiments on them fully.

  15. I do not but while reading this post all i could think about was the Office episode where what's his face irritating BFF of Michael who has WLM HNG on his car and has no idea why people think he is a William Hung fan.

    Oh yeah! His name was PACKER. Hate him.

  16. *Sigh*

    *Raises hand from the back of the room.

    I have one.

  17. I don't have one. Often while driving I will refer to the person in front of me by whatever is on their license plate.

    I don't even know what I would put on my plate if I wanted one.

  18. So funny because last week I told the boy about two I seen:

    LABRTVR to go with their Labrador dog sticker

    and the always class, URNUTZ

  19. My parents bought me one for my first car that said "MR UGLY" because that was my car's name.

    Now, sadly, I don't have any car whatsoever.

  20. okay wow that anal sex one is a bit ridiculous. i don't have a vanity plate and i don't plan on getting one any time soon.

  23. I never get vanity plates. I mean, if a cop is chasing after you, it's easier to write your plate number down. Now why would anyone want that?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do not have a vanity plate, but long ago I dated a guy who did. It was his initials and the number 1. For example, ABC1. I told him if he got a second vehicle, he should get ABC2 for the plate. He looked at me like I had 25 heads. It made sense to me...at least as much as the first plate made any sense.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahaha - no vanity plates here. They're so tacky and entirely too unnecessary!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have a whole blog dedicated to this. We don't have road rage, we have plate rage.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hahaha, yes. I definitely don't have one. A co workers has one that says "oh noes" though and that's kind of stupid/funny.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have one, although it's on golf cart and not my car: LEIGC

    As with anything, I find them acceptable if they aren't stupid.

  29. Why is it that nearly ever owner of a Lexus feels the need to display "Lex" or even "Lexy" (followed by a few numbers) on their license plate??

    Now, Alexa -- this urge better not tempt you if you someday drive a Lexus. . .with your name being what it is, I can see how it just might*

  30. *raises hand* I have vanity plates. Mine are pretty sweet though, because for years my Dad had them, it's his navy ship name. And when he died, one year later, they became available again, and they are now mine. I never thought I'd have them until this happened. It's my sorta tribute!

    Also,its two words, which are spelled correctly. Nothing stupid like WHT EVAR.

  31. I would if the Virginia DMV weren't so anti-Semitic.

  32. woahh this post upsets me! i looove personalized plates... totally breaks up the monotony of driving when i can take a second and figure out what lvoweih means !!

    although, i DO slightly judge people once i figure out the message they're broadcasting via license plate

  33. my plate used to say DTOWN. You don't have to tell me, I know it was boss.

    But then it was like $55 to renew it, on top of other renewal feels and a high priced registration. Bye bye DTOWN.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't come across many here in Mississippi, but I find them a little obnoxious, too. Needless to say, I don't have one and never will because I'm too cheap to pay extra for my license plate.

    ReplyDelete
  35. mine either said
    LA 21
    or
    PEN15
    I don't remember.

    ReplyDelete
  36. they are ALLLL OVER in virginia. i sort of hate them, and sort of appreciate the fact that trying to decipher them gives me something to do while driving.

    the only one i've sort of liked was for a family whose daughter took piano lessons from me. their last name was Bean, and their minivan's plate was "FULLA BNZ"

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hahhaha, I was looking at your title going "Hmm what does that even mean??" to myself.

    Then, about 30 seconds later, I got it. Which is about as long as it takes me to figure out stupid vanity plates. They KILL me.

    ReplyDelete
  38. 1) I really thought that "how much you like butt sex" was going to be a link to my blog yesterday. LOL

    2) My vanity plate says iluvalxa. is that okay?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh you're so right, they are cheesy. I don't have one but my grandparents do. The only reason I ask for light judgement is because they got one with the name of their honeymoon location years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  40. oh, HATE THEM. My boyfriend actually ordered one and I made him feel so dumb about it that he went back to the DMV and changed his request. He rarely listens to my input on such matters which tells you how much of an impact I must have made. His wasn't even that bad, but it's principle.

  41. When I was a young child, I thought those were so super. I also wore acid washed jeans then, so its hard to take my tastes from back in the day seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  42. My ex boyfriends said IB6 UB9

    The plate lasted much longer than the relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't, but I must admit that when I first read LNCHLADY, I thought it meant Lynch Lady, which, praytell, is much different than Lunch Lady.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I do not have one. I think they're stupid. Unless the one that says MILF becomes available.

    Then I'm all over it.

    (Just kidding)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Um, mine for sure said "HAWK32" (my nickname and my lucky/favorite number). I got it for my 16th b-day and put it on my first car, which was cleverly nicknamed, "The Hawk32". People still call me that to this day. I have never lived it down.

  46. how could anyone forget EJK11? she took us to so many post tim's wendy's trips. To this day people still ask me if I still have that car! haha!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Depending on what they say.....If they are sentimental or kinda cute I don't mind them, but when they say something like "IM WONDERFUL" or the likes - Hate them!

    You have to put up with them out here in California - They are everywhere in SF!

    I don't have one, but my husband has one and it says "DEEETZ" - Something he used to say as a little kid. (they are sooo expensive!!)

    Anyways when I moved from the Cleveland area (hometown Parma) to CA it is like "another world" - seriuosly!

    PS: Love your blog!

  48. For the record... the license plate is actually CRAZIEE.
