Someone pulled a bumper sticker off my car while it was in a parking lot. How rude! However, I’m not sure it had the effect that the person intended.
As you may have guessed, it was a political bumper sticker. Nothing offensive. It was just an old Obama 2008 sticker.
I can only assume that some conservative Republican pulled it off because they don’t like Obama. But let’s think about this for a minute. If you pull a bumper sticker off my car, then I have to replace it. In the case of an Obama sticker, that means paying Obama’s campaign fund to send me a new one. Which means that, because of this person’s actions, I just donated five dollars to Obama’s re-election campaign which I otherwise would not have. I can only speculate that this was not the result that this person was going for.
As a side note, I also had a Darwin fish magnet on my car which they didn’t even touch, which puzzles me. I always thought that was far more offensive than the Obama one. After all, the campaign sticker just supports the Democratic candidate. The Darwin fish insults Creationists.
People are strange.
