message 1: by Meg (new)

Meg maybe this should have been a part of the "i hate you car" strand, but i think it deserves a place of its own.

i hate personlized licence plates especially those that have anything to do with being anyone's girl.

message 3: by Kim (new)

Kim (kmdoubleday) I hate that the state that I'm from (not the one that I live in)has more vanity plates than people who vote. I hate that they spend more time thinking about the spelling of their coolness to put on their car (which I hate)and then go on to treat you (meaning me, relunctant driver)as less than worthy. I hate vanity plates so much that I once had a list on my wall of the most hated vanity plates that I had seen and would add to it daily. The worst being 'strike' and 'viper' and 'g-suss' and the most annoying in the state that I live in now being 'iluv2ski' or 'my3kids'. I hate that I actually pay attention to these idiots and can write a paragraph or an essay or two about them.

message 4: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (wanna_read_all_the_books) Kim, would you by any chance be from VA? Of course, everyone in my family has vanity plates so...

message 5: by Kim (new)

Kim (kmdoubleday) no such luck, Cindy... I'm from NH... and my family only WISH that they could be smart enough to think in vanity plate speak.

message 6: by Valerie (new)

Valerie I hate that I once saw a girl driving a little red jeep that had the license plate:


I hate that I didn't think of that first.

message 7: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (wanna_read_all_the_books) I hate the fact that I sit at stoplights staring at the car in front of me and tailgate assholes who put something stupidly complicated on their plates trying to figure out what it says. I hate that I can't stand not figuring it out. So I end up driving like an asshole until I figure it out and then I feel all triumphant for about three and three quarters seconds and then I feel like a moron. I hate that too.

message 8: by Kim (new)

Kim (kmdoubleday) ditto that Cindy...

what the hell is MBL? I hate that you know that Val.

message 9: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony I had to think about it, like Cindy said, but I think it means "Maybe Later". Am I wrong on that?

Whether I'm wrong or right, thinking about it was five minutes of my life wasted. I hate that.

message 10: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony I hate you Maurice for figuring that out. I like my interpretation better:)

message 11: by Valerie (new)

Valerie I hate that most of you didn't know what that meant, and I figured it out the second I laid eyes on it.

Maurice was the only one riding in the MBL with me.

message 12: by Kim (new)

Kim (kmdoubleday) I hate that Maurice always figures them out before me. I think he has a secret stash of vanity plate phrases at hand to befuddle me

shellyindallas I met this guy once who was a friend of friends and he was pretty funny and seemed smart and cool and then later I saw his car and his license plate said "tawk2me". I was like, OK, all the assumptions I just made about this guy are totally false.

message 14: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (songgirl7) I knew it as soon as I saw it but I was too late. Do you guys remember that 80s TV game show where the whole point was figuring out vanity plates?

message 15: by Seizure Romero (new)

Seizure Romero I'm guessing by the several hours of inactivity that no one else remembers that show.

I saw part of one episode and I remember thinking this was a show for people who were too stupid to make the cut for Wheel of Fortune (I'm thinking the next step down is a show called Don't Forget to Breathe or maybe Dodge Hammer). I hate Wheel of Fortune. I hate the way the audience has to chant the title at the beginning so everyone can be reassured that the fleet of short buses dropped them all off at the right studio.

There is a car roaming about the Seattle area with a vanity plate proclaiming DMB FAN. I love the irony. I kinda hate the owner.

UGHHHH! Piss off!

message 17: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 5731 comments I hate plates that reference obscure sports details that no one understands except for 5 other dorks that waste more time than you do learning unimportant details about their favorite team.

message 18: by Beth (new)

Beth One of my neighbors has a vanity plate that says "TELLHIM". No idea what's up with that. Possibly some religious thing. Her daughter's vanity plate says "GRINDIN". ????...not sure what's up with that.

When I was in high school, there was this sleazy twenty-something guy named Steve Hartzog who drove around hitting on all the high school girls, much like Matthew McConaughey in "Dazed and Confused". The vanity plate on his yellow IROC Camaro said "THE ZOG". He had a magnificent mullet. I will remember that vanity plate until the day I die.

message 19: by Lori (new)

Lori (tnbbc) i worked with a manager whose plate said

I hated that freaking plate!

smetchie | 5731 comments Ha ha Gretchen!

70-Chip is a very important moment in the history of the NFL. At least to me and a few of my dorky friends.

message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

and in the same vein but somehow way worse...."Save the Coral Reefs " plate in Florida on... a Hummer

good to know!

Reads with Scotch well I guess someone is going to heaven... 1 down 5 billion to go.

message 25: by Jillian (last edited Feb 17, 2008 11:00AM) (new)

Jillian (mother_of_dinosaurs) I hate the ones where I have to think too long to figure out what it means and then I don't notice the light has turned green and people are honking at me.

message 26: by Alison (last edited Feb 17, 2008 09:34PM) (new)

Alison So, Beth, maybe your neighbor is a psychologist? Or a priest, who gets a lot of confession duty? Or maybe he's one of those guys that comes up to you in malls and asks you survey questions for a living?

And thanks, by the way..."The Zog" was my prom date.

"That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older and they stay the same age."

message 27: by Clackamas (new)

Clackamas I live in Oregon and our main plate has a fir tree in the middle. I hate that I'm constantly assuming that people are clever enough to use the tree as part of their vanity statement, which throws me off of what they're really trying to say. These two were clever though:

a) 12(tree)45
b) SO (fir)TLE (seen on a minivan loaded down with kids, of course)
