I'm the most indecisive person I know... I think

So many "creative" plates out there... so little time.

Today's theme is Think Fast - You're Applying for a Vanity Plate.Our first victim of indecisiveness comes from Donna F. CNT DCYD (Can't Decide) just couldn't make up his mind. What a great quality to post on a vanity plate.

I think this might be a DMV snafu more than anything. I mean, this driver might have wanted the word NUMBER, but I can't figure out why. Maybe they're an anesthesiologist? Maybe to confuse the cops?

Officer: *krrrrt* Yeah I have a license plate NUMBER for you to run.
Dispatch: Please give me the license plate number…
Officer: Uh, NUMBER.
Dispatch: Yes, the number.
Officer: No! It's NUMBER.
Dispatch: Yes, sir, they usually are.

Or I could potentially see this as an “I can’t follow directions” kind of mistake. Vanity plate application reads:

What would you like the vanity plate to say (if you would like a number, please leave blank): I want NUMBER

That second one... maybe a dentist or a PCP? They get patients that need things a bir number before you can perform minor surgery on them? Although I do love that cop/dispatch convo.

The top one - yeah, okay, I did get it on pretty much the first try, but still, I don't think those are consonants you want to play Russian Vowel Roulette with. Besides, I spent way too much time trying to make something "dirty" out of DCYD...

I dont recommend anyone using the word "can't" without the "a". Ever.

I'm hoping that NUMBER is meant to be ironic and/or surrealistic.

NUMBER as a DMV snafu reminds me of the guy who got NO PLATE.

When I took the picture of the number plate, that cop/dispatch conversation you posted was the exact same scenario my husband and I imaged. Weird. Platerazzi must think alike.

Eureka! I have found it! "CUNT DECAYED."


Okay, that was rather unnecessary. But still funny. It just occurred to me as we were driving today. *snicker*
