Back Off!

The demented senior citizens who live next to me have a license plate frame on their car which, with six simple words, conveys everything that’s wrong with the world today.

It says: “BACK OFF! Our granddaughter’s a lawyer.”

With all due respect to attorneys I admire, I’ve spent the last ten years wanting to take that frame off their car and treat it like the recalcitrant printer from Office Space.

I’m sure this granddaughter is a wonderful attorney and they have every right to be proud of her. But c’mon, J.D.s are about as rare as air molecules. And based on the location of this prideful proclamation, I can only assume she’s a personal injury attorney. Larry H. Parker without the Y chromosome.

Not that I’m letting it get to me, of course.

My car, on the other hand, has a very boring license plate frame. I think it says “Tustin Mitsubishi”, but I’m not even sure. I’d like to come up with something a bit more apropos to the glaring threat that eminates from Grandma and Grandpa Lawsuit’s ride. Perhaps “Lawyers suck”. Or “Back off! Or my neighbors will sue… me”.

Any suggestions?

    Wasn’t that a fax machine, not a printer?

    “the difference is that god doesn’t think he’s a lawyer.”

    tho…my dad gets a runner-up nod for “my daughter was bottomdweller of the month at whittier law”…it replaced “my kid was inmate of the month at folsom.”

    I always thought it was a printer. Probably because most printers I’ve owned have left me spouting invectives, accusations, and the occasional vituperation.

    My girlfriend had the same reaction on reading this entry. “Hey wasn’t that a fax machine?”

    “The first thing we do, is kill all the lawyers.” That way, if you get questioned, you can tell the inquisitor that you really enjoy Shakespeare.

    Speaking of License Plates and YOU. Well, I’ve been driving around Orange County and Found perculiously A few plates just from May till June that I was wondering if you could help me with.
    I have come accross a Ford Expedition with the license plate “RON RAPP” and I drove up honked and waved at a really old guy, but it clearly wasn’t you.

    Then, Saw another plate that just said “RAPP” and one more that Said “RAPP FAM” Do you know any of these guys?
