F...26.2 Stickers

I can see that Matty has already commented on my Facebook status, but in my history of Facebook I have never had such an inflammatory response. Am I being a total douche in thinking that the people with these bumper stickers are a little bit douchey themselves?

I don't take ANYTHING away from the people who have ran a marathon, but that's kind of like putting a bumper sticker on your car that says, "I've had a child." It's a totally amazing and impressive feat that I couldn't even think of doing right now, but that's like saying, "You should totally be impressed by me and because of my bumper sticker, I am better than you."

Maybe it's the PBR talking, but I don't see how anyone can defend the reasoning behind having one of those bumper stickers...

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

I have driven my car more than 26.2...does that count?

WTF is up with all these "Jesus is _____" stickers? In just one year they've spread like wild fire.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

Maybe, but just recently I've seen a TON of these. I probably should stop being so critical considering I've never come close to running one, but jeebus it seems so "Look at how awesome I am."

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

That's what they mean ? WOW, there are a lot of physically fit people in the world then. I've got a bumper sticker for you, 26.2 means that's how many Double Stuffed Oreo's I ate today !

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

I'm on the fence with this one. Generally, I hate any and all bumper stickers because I could care less about some strangers opinion, like/dislike, political affiliation, etc. But I can understand that if you've just accomplished something that your very proud of then you want to tell the world. As a runner, I don't think of myself as a "I'm a better person than you because I ran a marathon" kind of guy. But, I haven't bought a 26.2 bumper sticker either. I really don't think putting one on makes you any more of a douche than putting OBX or whatever on your car. Whatever, it's early. I have a 25k trail race in a couple of hours to get ready for. They're giving out free "25KTR" bumper stickers to all the finishers!

Took me a while to figure out what 26.2 was all about... In my best Christian Bale voice I say Oh good for you!!

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

TMC, do you have a sticker from your college on your car? To me it's not that different.

I mean I know what you mean; stickers like that in general can be pretty douchey, but I don't think it's that big of a deal.
The bumper stickers I hate are the "My Kid Is On The Honor Roll At..." especially when it's for an elementary school; and even more so when they follow it up with multiple "And Again" stickers. If your kid wins a Nobel Prize or the Pulitzer then I'll be impressed, but I don't really care that little Billy got a bunch of B's in the 4th grade.

This is kind of how I feel about it. I had a hungover lunch with a friend today and we talked about this and came to the same conclusion.

My friend in my last post had the exact same response as you. I think I'm being way too sensitive and yes, those stickers annoying. I do have a sticker of my college on my car but I don't feel like it's saying, "I GRADUATED COLLEGE MOTHA F***A!" I understand it's a point of pride, but it's just so lame.

I actually had to delete my post because people CALLED me to yell at me for it. One of them I hadn't spoken to in years... They were like, "You try and do it!" I didn't say I could do it and I'm impressed by people too, but this is akin to my OBX sticker post where I feel like it's acting like they're better than you.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

LOL I agree with you TMC. A bit douchy. Great you did it, but a proclamation to the world isn't needed IMO.

It's more like "hey look at me, I am so cool and I ran a marathon". Do you think any professional runners put up 26.2 stickers on their car? No. They don't because they realize it is a n00b thing to do. They probably laugh at cars when they see it.

HAHAHAHA, now that you say that, that makes a ton of sense. I mean we've ALL done things that are physically exhausting. Should anyone who's played and practiced for a sport in their life have a sticker saying, "I played four years of high school football."?

Maybe I should get a bumper sticker that says I'm an ultra-sensitive douche.

I have to stop getting bothered by stuff like this, lol.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

I notice (and get annoyed) by a lot of things like this that most people deem "small". I hate accepting things society thinks are alright mainly because I think they are dumb(anything Apple for example). I guess we would make for great comedians!

I am glad I am not the only one who looks at the world like this.

Re: F...26.2 Stickers

Bumper stickers in general are pretty tacky, unless you're driving a clunker.
