I don't understand why this even happens. If people would just stand at the microwave for 2 minutes this wouldn't happen. But NOOOOOO, they'd rather have cajun style popcorn and make us suffer the entire day. Bad enough it happens at least 2 times a day. I hate sitting by the kitchen.*phew* I feel better.

It's ridiculous, but you're right they might as well criticize the vehicle I drive just because I have an "In Loving Memory of..." sticker on my rear window.
"God please forgive me for placing an In Loving Memory of My Father sticker on my rear window for a daily reminder of him, especially while I'm on the road."
Daily reminder? How many times a day or even during the week do you actually look at the rear of your car?
Putting the decals on the windows actually look like your bragging that you have lost a loved one. Your also putting other loved ones in danger if you put the full name on the decal. For example if you have your Dad's full name on the decal then your giving a theif knowledge that he may of had a wife who's now living alone. Prime target, so they go on line and pay $49.95 and run a background check on the name with the birthdate and death date and have lots of information...
Also our loved one would like for us to let go, for the longer you greive for them the longer they have to hang around. If you could hear the spirits you would be ashamed of yourselves for keeping them from the wonderful after life they have earned.
These window stickers things all started with the death of Dale Ernhart, and really don't do much other then make money for those making the decals.
Same thing applies with the decals with children's names, years ago we stopped puting our kids names on their shirts so the sicko could use their names to get friendly with them. So now the new generation of parents are sticking the names on their cars, where the kids ride in them and are dropped off at school and after school activity areas. So the sicko follows the car see whatthe kid looks like and what they are wearing. Waits a while then approches the kid calling them by their name (kid thinks they have to know me they know my name) and gets the kid to follow them under the pretense the parent sent them....
It's great to brag on our kids but we need to remember to keep them safe so if you need to brag on them then do it with decals with out details...

I'd be willing to put up with the burned popcorn, the hard boiled egg, the licorice, all of that if someone would find a way to shut up the person in the next cube who sings and/or whistles through their teeth to every song that comes across the piped in music...it's bad enough we have to listen to the music but do you really have to add in your own off-pitch, off-key version? That's bad enough, but then you don't even know the lyrics and fall back on your "ta-dum-dums" that do nothing to enhance the music. Please, let the musicians sing their music without your pitiful attempts to do the lead vocals!

Whistling thru teeth along with "dental office" music in the next cube?

Duct tape. Definately. Pull off a length, write "Apply over mouth when tempted to sing or whistle" and put in the the offenders cube..Do it today.

Same goes for fish reheated in microwaves. The smell just lingers.

At least those decals are about a family member/close friend. What gets me is the decals for Dale Earnhardt. Those people never met him. It makes about as much sense as decals for Princess Di or Ronald Reagan.
I agree, I'm about to put a sticker on my car for my grandfather. And if anyone wants to say how stupid that is, then they have never lost someone special to them or are just mean in general. I think that people greive in different ways and I want a part of him with me where ever I go. It's a good way for me to remember him everyday and think about the good times

speaking of smells. i really dislike the fumes emitted from cars and esp buses and trucks. i don't think some people realize that they can hit the button to recirculate the air in the car rather than breathe in the fumes.

Seriously, what is it to you? And how would you know what the spirits are saying and if they want us to get out of their lives? Have you died and come back or something? And to say that it looks like "you are bragging or something" about losing a loved one it pretty much the dumbest thing I have ever heard someone say. Nobody brags about losing someone they love, it is completely devastating. And as far as looking at the rear of your car, I sure hope you are looking at yours every day, or I do not want to be anywhere near you when you are driving. I actually just saw someone who put one of these stickers on their car the other day for someone in their life (in other words not Dale Sr/Princess Di or whoever) and I thought it was a really neat thing to do. And as far as not knowing Dale Sr justifying whether or not you put one on or not, let me tell you - I was a huge fan of his, and saw the race he was killed in, and it sucked. It really sucked. It didn't feel nearly the same as when I lost my father, but I wouldn't fault anyone for honoring him. And as far as safety goes, if you are taking care of your children properly, you shouldn't have to worry about the stranger thing - especially since there are a host of other ways they get to your kids, you should be already preventing ANY kind of opportunity for a stranger to approach your child. And being a widow doesn't necessarily equal living alone or that she is incapable of taking care of herself or that she doesn't take precautions now that she is alone. My mom is a widow, and is very aware of it, and does make sure she doesn't leave herself vulnerable.

You rock. I especially think of the ones where the girls are the cheerleaders for the schools and the boys for whatever sport they are in. Parents need to stop and think about what they are doing. This is no different that the my space crap that is out there. Then when something does happen, you'll here them say, "how did this happen". Gee you idiot, can't imagine. Thanks for posting this. I'm very happy to see that someone else out there thinks rationally.

Nothing says class like a vinyl sticker on the back of a dirty car window. I sincerely hope that when I die my family will plant a tree or something for people to enjoy or some other such "memorial". If I get a memorial sticker on a car I will come back and haunt them until they scrape it off.

Honestly I understand their grief and I am not trying to diminish it. We all lose loved ones, but grief always used to be handled with your close family and friends rather than complete strangers on the freeway.

There is something vaguely rude about the memorial sticker phenomenon. Most people would not walk up to a stranger on the street and tell them about their deceased loved one. Why then is it OK to tell everyone that passes you on the freeway about your problems? Maybe its a product of the "its all about me" generation.

It would be interesting to see a demographic study on this. What type of income and education bracket do most of the sticker memorial folks come from?t would seem that initially most memorial stickers were "memorializing" some terrible tragedy such as losing a child, drunk driving etc. Most of the stickers had a reasonably short time between birth and death, But more and more, at least where I live, it would seem that people are memorializing thir great aunt, or mom or dad or old uncle that likely died of natural causes. If people want to raise awareness of a particular issue thats fine. Put a sticker that indicates exactly the message you want to convey on your car. You dont need to put your loved ones name and date of death there. Remember the MADD bumper stickers? The ones that said "My son (or daughter or parent or whomever) was killed by a drunk driver" I rarely see these stickers anymore. All of the memorial stickers I have see so far, with the exception of the one on your page here, have simply been a name and birth and death date. Nothing at all to make you "think" twice about anything towards safety or any social ill. The only thing can think when I see a memorial sticker is that the person driving the car must be in need of sympathy and understanding that they cant get elsewhere. Or perhaps that they think their problems are more important than anyone else out there who doesn't wear their heart on their windshield

Boiled eggs are good nutrition. I'd rather eat mine scrambled into an omelet with a little cheese and some Naked Juice for good measure. That or V8.

Get you some Febreeze. There's even a double strength for bathroom odors.
Good luck!

The Catholic Church gives out boiled eggs to the homeless. Just FYI.
