OBX

We've all seen those car stickers advertising the places you've been, right? You know, the ones that are white with a black circle and random letters inside. Like if you've been to Pittsburgh you'd sport one that says PGH inside the circle.

Cool, I know. I was actually bummed that Sam wouldn't let me get one that said GCNP from the Grand Canyon because Hey! we were actually somewhere since those things were invented! I wanted to show the whole world that we did, indeed, have a life. A small and pathetic one, but a life nonetheless. But he's not into sticking things on his car so I still look pathetically lifeless.

Anyhoo...

We were driving through town the other day and Becky says there are a lot of people with that on their car.

What?

That. The stickers that say they're obnoxious. Why would they even want to advertise that anyway?

You mean the ones for Outer Banks, North Carolina?

Oh.

I really can't laugh at her though. If we'd get out more she'd probably have known that.

Aimee said...

Michelle said...

Well, maybe she's got a point. After all, it iisssss the Outer Banks.

Justin said...

Maybe North Carolina is obnoxious? My hubs is not into stickers on the cars either.

Hahaha thats awesome.I love the Outer Banks though.I grew up not far from there.

I have a bumper sticker that says"What if the hokie pokie IS what it's all about" I have had it for a couple years and still haven't put it on my car.

LaskiGal said...

Is that what that stands for??? T and I were just asking about that during our last trip home.

I had no idea. Now we know . . .

And to think, we might be heading to the OBX next month. Never been, but everyone around here goes.

And yes. Some of them are obnoxious . . .

I would have been so lost with Becky!! LOL!! She is too cute. How is her puppy doing? Any better at house training?

I have a sticker that says SLC. My husband wants me to put it on my van.

That is hilarious!!! I'm with Becky, I wouldn't have had a clue what it stood for.

Teresa said...

I never can figure out what they mean, I would have thought the same thing as your daughter! I enjoy reading your blog and haven't commented before, its nice to see such a different lifestyle from my own (I'm a city girl who's only been on a horse 1 time in my life!) Thanks for making me smile!

Evidently no one in Detroit goes to the Outer Banks because I've never seen that sticker around here. And if I haven't seen it, of course that means it doesn't exist.

Flea said...

LOL! We have those things on our van. We were No Bumper Sticker people for years till we got this ancient vehicle. Then my Hunny thought it was a good idea to suddenly sticker it up. So we have several of those "obnoxious" type sticker, as well as Life is Good. And Glarnak the Destroyer (my favorite).

I have a bumper sticker that says, "I Miss Bill." It drives my Republican husband crazy.

Trisha said...

Hey - I think OBX reallymight mean obnoxious! I would have no clue what it really means so I am with Becky on that one! Too funny!

Kidzmama said...

Too funny.

My hubby was in the car with me today and said, "did you see that car with the pib in the window?".

"What?!"

"The P-I-B"

"You mean Put In Bay?"

"Yeah"

You have to get get so close to read the tiny print on those stickers. They are just asking for a fender bender.

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

They are obnoxious! What the heck is that sticker supposed to mean, "Oh, we're OBX people, just like 16 million others"? What's up with that? I got so fed up with all those type stickers that I slapped one on our car that said "Narnia."

CC said...

I had no idea. Obnoxious was just as good of a guess as any!

JennyH said...

So that is what those stickers are?!!

Now i know!

Colleen said...

I am starting to think that we are one of 10 cars left in the greater DC area without an OBX sticker on it. She's totally right, they ARE obnoxious.
