Over the last couple of months some of my friends have pointed out how unfriendly I look when I'm driving.
I keep telling them, "I'm not trying to be rude, I'm focused!!"
I've usually got too much going on in my car (listening to supposedly satanic NPR & telling my kids, "Is it really worth fighting about?") for me to be scanning the other cars for friends to wave at.
Also, I don't have a nameless van or SUV like so many of my friends. I have an embarrassingly recognizable Buick Regal whose headlights are literally glued in place. Between that and the "Bush/Cheney 2004" sticker ya can't miss me. At least back when I used to drive the Rodeo it was less noticable.
I get tailgated semi-frequently which I am assuming is because of the aformentioned bumper sticker. I HATE bumper stickers. If you want to make a permanent statement, do it in a tattoo instead of a sticker that may hurt your chances of selling the car or will get you flipped off for you opinion.
I also get many horrified looks in the Buick (especially by pedestrians) who must assume that I caused the 2 accidents that permanently mangled my car's front. Which I didn't, my hubby had 2 accidents that were really no fault accidents.
Anyone else have a recognizable car?
