Small Town America

I had jury duty a couple of years ago which wasn't too bad because the office I work in is located right across the street from the courthouse. I wasn't chosen as a juror but was there for the questions asked by lawyers, prospective jurors coming in with their doctor's notes and various excuses.

After the first twelve names were called the lawyers began to ask questions to see if they wanted to keep these people as jurors for their trial. I thought it was kind of sneaky for the lawyer to ask this question: Do you have a bumper sticker or personalized license tag on your vehicle and if so, what does it say? This is a really good way to find out a lot about a person's religion, politics and a whole host of other things, without coming right out and asking. Some of the answers were funny and immediate cause for that particular prospective juror to be dismissed!!!LOL

So this week I was on the look out for bumper stickers and personalized license plates that reflect the kind of people who live in my rural area and small towns near my home. I also saw a couple of neat church signs and heard a new post office story.

Here are some of them:

POST OFFICE STORY

Two men in front of me in line: One says to the other one, "Been fishin lately?". The other one says: "To ______ with fishing! The last time I went fishing I had to have surgery to get a fish bone out of my throat. If I get a bone in my throat again, it will be a chicken bone!".


Have a great Thursday!

I like the license plate that says TAKU UNDER - I wouldn't want him following me very far! ;)

Just had to laugh at the (former) fisherman! LOL

I like reading license plates and trying to decipher their meanings. Those that I can't figure out, I decide those people are wasting their money each year! ha ha (it would be hard to use the services from one who advertises with TAKU UNDER)

Oh yeah, my boss drives a Cadillac Escalade with the tag reading "Just4moi"
