Keeping in mind the current political climate I have to raise an eye about a car that has started parking right near one of the entrance doors, backed into the slot so the rear window is a couple feet off the sidewalk folks pass by on.  In glancing I've noticed "4 doors more whores" sticker and also "panty dropper (with a set of dropped panties and legs outline)".  I haven't stopped to read the rest but the tone of language seems to be self apparent.  Honestly surprised in PC land that HR hasn't flagged this person down as the parking lot is still private property, IE you couldn't wear a shirt about whores in the office.

I don't understand bumper stickers as a thing.  I have a dark gray, small SUV and there are a million of those in every parking lot so I have one inoffensive, bright-yellow ABATE sticker for easy identification.  But I don't really "get" why people put statement or joke stickers on their cars.

we have one of those 4 doors one at work too!  I'm pretty shocked as well.  it must be a pretty low level worker b/c I can't imagine I'd get away with that.

 

but then again - we have a manager who used to have a middle finger air freshener on his rear view mirror.

I generally have a distaste for bumperstickers in general.  specifically ones that are overtly political.  but the ones you mention my first thought would be "dumb ass teen"

Agreed.  I'm just surprised HR hasn't pulled them aside "Hi, some folks might find your sticker statements offensive and this is private property.  So if you'd like to have these stickers on your car and still work at this facility rather than backing your car up to the entrance door on full display please use the perimeter rows and back up to the bushes instead.  Mmmkay thanks."

or maybe they just look at it, shake their heads, and say 'idiot' and let it go.

true.  some things are only worth bothering with if someone complains.

That being said, there are some pretty stealthy drug band stickers these days

In today's political climate (and the leftist drift of where I live) I'm actually surprised someone isn't offended on behalf of someone. :P

I always wondered what kind of person put on the sophomoric humor, poorly veiled sexual innuendo bumper stickers.

 

For some reason, Northern California tourist attraction, Mystery Spot, is a common bumper sticker.

 

It is a cool thing to visit. I have been there more than once. Maybe they give away the stickers and everybody's kid slaps the sticker on the family car. .

I feel the same way about the NRA and gun stickers.  "Hey criminals!  There's a better than average chance of this car having a gun to steal inside."

Squeak and I spent an afternoon at that place right before they went to Japan. So damn cheesey but, so much fun with her. The Sombrero lift was broken so we couldn't go up. That made me a bit sad.
