Driver Carries No Cash

Maybe this is more chit chat than anything but it happened on my commute. I have taken a few days off the bike and today was the only day I've cycled to work. I was only a few minutes from my house when I saw a bumper sticker that made me laugh very hard!

DRIVER CARRIES NO CASH
HE IS MARRIED

Just had to share

Shoot, where you live, I would tend to think the bumper sticker would be more likely to read:

DRIVER CARRIES NO CASH
HARRAH'S GOT IT ALL

One that was probably discussed here on BR a few years ago on the t-shirt of a cyclist (IIRC):

"MY EX GOT THE CAR"

I didn't realise that Reno had gone that far downhill. I used to live in Reno until about 1991, when I moved up to Seattle.

Uh, so he could get more cash and go back to the casino and lose more?

Sounds as if there's more in the backstory...

Oh wonderful, I didn't realise he had a passenger. What a fool.

Do you think he's regretting this incident now ?

My car has 2 stickers on the rear window. one is oval shaped with lightning bolts and in the middle it says "Potentially Stable" and the other says "My cat can beat up your cat" which is funny because my cat has no eyes. Oddly enough she can still catch birds.
My brother's '78 Mini has a vanity plate that says "X SMALL"
and my bike helmet has a sticker (thanks to my mother in law who bought the helmet) that says "this bike is capable of evading high speed pursuit"
another of my brother's had a sticker on his truck that said "my child was inmate of the month at county jail"

On my company Freightliner, I've got the "Federal Homeland Security Emergency Evac Plan-Run You mutha, Run!!!"
And I also have one in the shape of a war support ribbon that says, "Some ******* stole my support ribbon!"
Cool thing is, one's already a magnetic ribbon, the other was a bumper sticker that I stuck to "cut-it-yourself" magnet.
So, when I get a different job, I'll slap 'em on something else.

My favorite bumpersticker so far is: Sex is like pizza. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad... it's still pretty good.
