I have this thing, one of many weirdo pet peeves I possess, I can't stand personalized license plates. I don't know why they bother and annoy me so, especially considering they aren't even mine so really why should I care you're driving around with a license plate that states "Da Wifes" or something else that is equally as stupid.
And unfortunately for me, Arizona seems to have an abundance of folks that find creative ways to express themselves using the license plate. I roll my eyes when I see them, and make snarky comments if Leo is with me. What can I say they just annoy the crap out of me. Sometimes they are a challenge to figure out what the hell they are trying to say. It's like a mobile brain teaser. And to some extent I enjoy the challenge until I figure it out and usually my reply is 'That's just dumb'.
And since there is no way for me to ban seeing them, I have one small request. For the love of pete man, use proper English on them. I don't care if you have to get crafty and use GR8 to spell out great, not a big deal in fact I might give you some creativity points. But you get no points if you have a plate like the following (I saw it this morning) 4MEKID. Maybe their Irish? Or MAYBE they're just a flaming idiot.
I guess probably now that I've shared this with you, they won't bother me as much. And if you're a reader who has a personalized plate well, I hope for your sake it at least has proper English on it.
Grace, by any other name.
