Random Thought – RIP Signs on Vehicles

I’ve noticed cars and trucks lately that have “In Loving Memory of [insert deceased here]” written in large letters on back windows.   I’m also often seeing stickers that say “RIP” and “In Memoriam” and include a date, picture, etc. of the deceased.

I don’t understand this phenomenon? When has it become customary to make your car a rolling obituary? What message are these people trying to send and to whom? I just find it odd.

A lot of these people are really bad drivers so there has to be a tie-in there somewhere. I also think their money would have been better spent fixing the broken tail light vs. blocking half of their rear window with a giant vinyl sticker.

You don’t see memorials to pets that often and you definitely don’t see any tributes to that 10-point Buck you bagged last fall..  What’s next?
