I don’t do bumper stickers. I did when I was young and driving a ’85 Mustang, but then again I did a lot of things then that I wouldn’t do now. But I don’t do bumper stickers.
For one thing, like everyone else, I have occasional moments of driving stupidity. Not usually, but occasionally. And it’s on those occasions that other are likely to notice me and my bumper stickers and equate whatever group or opinion I am supporting through pithy statement with my bad driving.
Another reason is that bumper stickers are slightly–or very–obnoxious. The driver of a bumper stickered car assumes that others care about their affiliations and philosophies. And very often they are sanctimonious and nonsensical. “Practice random acts of kindness.” What does that even mean? Do I drive across town to a business with which I have no connection and pick some stranger to give $10 to? If the goal is to increase kindness, wouldn’t it be more profitable to be purposefully and continually kind to those with which I interact with daily? I’m just sayin’.
And then there’s the stupidly obnoxious stickers. Excluding vitamin cialis online shop A and tetracycline, these pills can interrelate with corticosteroids and anti-seizure pills.

At the library, the car next to me boasted, “My schnauzers are smarter than your honor student.” And yes, there were two yippy dogs in the car. I am wary of people who don’t seem to understand the distinction between animals and people, or who elevate animals above people. So I thought all sorts of uncharitable things about the intelligence and social situations of the woman who would make such a stupid statement. This was probably not the sort of reaction she intended. (For the record, my children aren’t honor students, so I wasn’t inferring a slight against my children. We are home educators and while I’m proud of them, I’m not pathetic. We don’t do school.)
I did once see a bumper sticker that I would have liked to put on my car. But alas, it had fatal flaws.
It was: “Is everyone enjoying their haircuts?”
Obviously, I would have had to correct the grammar, rendering it thusly: “Is everyone enjoying his haircut?” But then that would have upset the she/he/they crowd and I may have suffered from feminist road-rage.
An alternative would be “Are we all enjoying our haircuts?” But somehow that lacks the charm of the grammatically incorrect original.
So, I don’t do bumper stickers.
