Personalize Me

There are many reasons why I think these East Coasters are weird...one of them being their obsession to have a personalized licence plate. Honestly, personalizing your plate doesn't annoy me (I've actually contemplated having mine say "J.Lowe"), but it's just odd to see every 5th car personalized as you drive around town. You think I'm exaggerating when I say every 5th but I'm not. It's actually about every 3rd...or on this particular day...every ONE.
This is my walk from the front door of Target to my car after a day of shopping. I didn't park very far, I wasn't the last car on the row. This is 100% true...no joke.






See... I wasn't kidding. Obsessed much? All thought of possibly owning a personalized plate has now gone out the window. If I wanna stand out, be different and make a statement, I'll stick with "515-NFV"

Vegas is almost as bad! About 1 in 5 is personalized including mine. :) The DMV compounded the "problem" by having 35 available plate designs as well, not joking. I think you should go for the J.Lowe when you get to wherever you're going. :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought Vegas was weird, with a wall FULL of a variety of plates to choose from, for nearly every event/theme/charity under the sun. But that is hilarious about the east coast. I mean, do these people know how rediculous they all look, but they think they are being so cool! I agree with you, it's not bad when it's not that common, but it's a joke when EVERYONE does it, it just looks stupid and show-off-y. I can't wait to hear more of your "observations", since I'm sure there will be many more. :)

This sort of thing is unoriginal, follow the leader, "cookie cutter" nonsense. Incidentally, I neglected to thank you for the CD's. I'm enjoying them.

oh my goodness. I had no idea, what a neat observation. "J. Lowe" would've been great...especially in Texas - I don't know if it's because of all the cute Mexicans that would get a kick out of it or because you don't see personalized plates here that often. The only question I have is...were you not worried the car owners were going to be following behind you wondering why you were taking pictures of their cars? I love how you have your camera for everything.

That was so funny! I love personalized license plates, I don't have one but only because I can't decide what to put on it!

It has been proven that people with bumper stickers, personalized license plates, etc. are prone to be way more aggressive on the road(i.e. Lindsay). All I can say is be really aware and careful or LUV4SEL is going to ram into your car.

I read that too, about people with bumper stickers being more aggressive...

How weird that people there do that...
