Someone's Asleep on the Job

I was driving home from the City on Friday, stuck in traffic and none too happy about it, when I saw this license plate:


How did that slip by the DMV? Can this be the same DMV who turned down my mom's request for a license plate reading "NANCY A" because they deemed it in questionable taste? It was only after my mom wrote an explanatory letter (A is the first letter of her last name) that they relented. And yet they let some stoner have a DOOD WTF license plate? Clearly, they're not up on current slang or IM abbreviations. Ha!

Well, the license plate made me laugh. So thank you, DMV, for falling down on the job. Because as we all know, when you're stuck in traffic on a Friday afternoon, that's rarely something to smile about.

    We've seen DOOD WTF on Highway 280 several times in the past six months. We thought he was cool until this morning when we saw him rocking out by himself in the car and *clapping* while behind the wheel. Dood, keep at least one hand on the steering wheel, would ya? (I did think to myself, "WTF?")
