Re: F...26.2 Stickers

I think bumper stickers in general are stupid, especially all the political ones. But really, no one gives a shit how far you've ran, if your kid gets A's in school, if you like Obama, if you want to co-exist, if you've been to VT, if you want to consider WWJD, if you're against war and abortion, or any other damn thing. Keep that crap to yourself. NO ONE cares. I have a UF alumi license plate frame, but that's as far as it goes.

Tup totally agree.
The only one I've ever owned was a Holy Cow Brewery sticker I put on my old beater Pontiac which I sold long ago.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

My wife has a 13.1 on her car, she was definitely proud of herself for doing it and in no way is saying she is better than those who didn't.

I think TMC is is inflicting his own emotions into the sticker. Just like when someone reads a email totally wrong then what you attended it to be. My dad is that way I seriously can only write him quick answers otherwise he take the whole thing out of context.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

I agree, the 26.2 is douchy. If you graduated from a good college and you put that sticker out there, I don't mind that because that's a REAL accomplishment.

Gee you ran 26.2 miles at one time. Is that hard? Sure. Does it mean much of anything? No.

On the kids' honor roll bumper stickers, I do have a bit of a different opinion though. I agree it comes across pretentious until you think about it from the 6 year old's point of view. He just got a good report card, he's proud, he sees other kids' moms with the bumper sticker on the car, and now he's earned it too. Are you as a parent going to tell him no?

If you did, you'd be a bigger douche than the parent who displays them proudly.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

I don't know. I run a good amount. I'd never put a sticker on my car like that because I think it is a little too boastful for my taste but at the same time I don't see them and think the person is a dick. I generally think it is more of a "I'm in the club" type thing.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

Wait, people actually buy these things? For some reason I thought they were given out when you ran a marathon or something. I'm not a big fan of bumper stickers, and the only one I have is a small Terps sticker on my old Chevy Tracker. I don't really care by the 26.2 stickers, but I can see your point TMC.

I agree with you on that. I was actually thinking that when people were slamming the honor roll bumper stickers. I think I remember pressuring my parents into putting one of mine on their car at one point and I think they resisted a little. As an adult, I can understand why they resisted; I don't really like bumper stickers, but when I'm a parent, I think I'll just put it on there so that my child can feel good about it.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

Well, I do think the honor roll thing is dumb personally. If my kid wanted me to put one on my car I'd have to politely find a way around it. Sorry kid, stickers don't belong on cars.
