We’ve all seen the stick figure families on the backs of people’s cars. They’re cute. Apparently, some people really hate them, and several really obscene decals are available now, spoofing the trend. The other day, when the kids and I were leaving a playground, we saw a particularly charming decal on a car in the parking lot.
It was on a Cadillac Escalade, in the parking lot of the “poshest” playground in my area. I guess after you spend $85K on a car, there’s no money left over to buy some class?
Thanks to the owner of that Caddy for leaving me to try to explain this to my kids:
Thanks for keeping the playground family-friendly, Escalade owner. Stay classy.
But later that same day I stumbled across some really, truly awesome alternatives to the classic stick figure family decals.If you’re “so over” stick figure families, how about one of these (instead of something truly offensive)? Check them out!
