Today I was driving a car which had TWO "Baby on board" signs in the rear window, together with a sign saying "Perfect family on board". The "perfect family" sign showed silhouettes of a man, woman, girl and boy holding hands.

AIBU to have wanted to rear-end their car?

I was driving BEHIND a car which had those signs, I mean!

Must preview.

Anyone who has a 'perfect' family sign is going to be in for a rude awakening one day when reality kicks in. How strange!

The abominable side of me wishes I could leave a pair of used knickers in the glovebox...and then see just how the perfect couple dealt with things!

it's a facade

you know that inside one child was screaming, one was being sick and the mother was trying to drive while telling the father that the raisins were in the pocket of the bag, no the other bag, oh now he's thrown his juice everywhere, you can't have put the lid on properly, where are the wet wipes, no I asked you to pack them, do I have to do everything, yes I know I should have turned right can you all just SHUT UP.

if you're rear-ended her she'd have got out and belted you round the chops.

"Today I was driving a car" - too late melpomene, your Freudian slip caught you out.

It's your car, isn't it?

Yes you are nauseating, and self-satisfied.

Oh - I need one of those signs - can anyone point me in the direction of the website please ?

yanbu. am struggling to credit that such a sign is commercially available.

I want a sign that says
screaming banshee for a mother and my Dad's no better!
We're really quite naughty, but damn good looking!

Were they driving really really poorly, as well ?

NellyNoNorks Fri 02-Oct-09 15:56:17

Maybe it was ... ironic?

MintyCane Fri 02-Oct-09 15:58:26

yuk hmm

Oh but it was mine. Everything's always perfect here chez ThingOne. My children NEVER have tantrums, argue in the car, or eat chips.

I am guessing somebody must have bought the sign for them and they have to display it so as not to offend the giver.Please God.

I like Pikelit's suggestion grin

i'd prefer a sticker saying 'my other family is perfect.'
