I don't get it

So.... quite a while ago I took notice of something that other parents do all too often and, having kids myself, I just don't get it AT ALL. I saw it again just this morning so I'm feeling the need to complain about it.

Why would anyone in their right mind let their kid COVER the back seat windows with stickers?

Those cars are everywhere....and all you can see as they drive by you on the highway is a back seat window with little teeny white splotches all over it, some unsuccessfully torn off leaving that lovely adhesive (read: concrete) behind.


What made this all so much worse for me was the car I saw this morning...a not-at-all cheap Mercedes with tinted windows and (ugh) STICKERS on this inside of the window. I mean, I get that your kid it at that perfect height while sitting in a car seat, but what's wrong with giving him/her a toy to play with, preferably one that doesn't involve adhesive...or how about just look out the window, kid. You might see something crazy. I see crazy shit all the time.

My kids have never had the urge to put stickers on the window. They would just put them all over themselves and their clothing, which would end up in the wash...and then the dryer...and we have some great worn-in sweatshirts with adhesive "stains" on them (I swear, it doesn't come off)...but NOT the car windows.

The occasional Cheerio in the impossible-to-access spaces between the seat and the seat belt buckle?Yes. Stickers? Hell no.

I don't even like going through the effort to scrape off my county registration sticker and replace it with a new one every year.

This is the only car sticker I approve of

  1. I thought I was the only one with this, possibly irrational, pet peeve.

    Thank God I'm not alone!
