A slick and polished mess.

I’ll preface this by saying I’m not intending to purposely offend anyone. However, please someone explain these to me:



What is the point of this? “In memory of so and so…” That’s a dependent clause. There’s a first half of that sentence that is usually left off because it’s obvious. In order for something to be “in memory of John Doe” something has to be being done. You erect a building in someone’s memory. You donate money to a charity in someone’s memory. You… drive to Walmart in someone’s memory?. What is in her memory? What have act have you performed that has been done in her memory? What is it you have done that is honoring her? Was the act of paying $5.00 for a vinyl decal your act of remembrance? What sort of memorial is that? Are you cutting me off and not using your turn signal to honor your dead relative? If you have one of these stickers, please tell me why.

I just don’t get it.

    I totally agree with you, it just makes no sense.

    Did you ever see a tattoo with a loved one’s name and DOB/DOD? It’s the same thing. Tacky, in my opinion, but there it is.
