FL Registration Sticker Phenomenon
My grandfather used to always say they need to teach a class in common sense. After living in Florida with so many cretins for so many years, I would make that class a 4 year program.
Among the many different avenues of idiocy here, this strictly south Florida phenomenon is such a laughable mystery to me. People just cannot grasp the concept of replacing your existing vehicle registration sticker with the new one mailed to you. Let's say this month you get your new registration sticker for June. It is perfectly fine to replace your JUN 12 sticker with JUN 13 today! You need not wait until the end of the month! That sticker is now saying that your vehicle is registered until the end of June 2013!!! Holy Shit! What a mind scramble!! These SoFla nimrods seem to think that you need to keep putting on the stickers all over your plate. (See above photo...I actually just noticed that the plate holder is on upside-down as well! HAHA!!) I've literally seen plates where the stickers are covering parts of the alphanumeric. It's actually become a driving game of sorts for my wife and I, shouting out the oldest sticker year seen...pointing at the lummox behind the wheel! I've noticed I will actually judge a driver ahead of me if I see them to be a perpetrator of this practice. I will immediately steer clear or move ahead of this person based on their displayed intelligence. In Florida, I live by the general rule that it doesn't pay to be a do-gooder. For example, when operating a vehicle and somebody is trying to get into my lane, very rarely would I let them in. If your license plate is chock full of registration stickers dating back to 2002, there is no way in Hell you are getting in front of me. Your stupidity will definitely cause a delay in my journey. Farewell to you.
