This morning on the way home from work I saw something that made me go "Why Tan Fox?" and laugh rather hard. Granted, it was probably the post-night shift delirium that made me totally lose it laughing, but I still think it was odd. The car in front of me had a well-made sign in the rear window that said "XY BSN RN" where x y = presumably the driver's initials. I was befuddled as to why someone would do that. Some of my friends have various humorous nursing-related bumper stickers, but nothing as seemingly umm boastful as that. Now I must confess I couldn't see the rest of the car. It could've had company logos on the side or whatever, but my perception was that this was a personal car.
I could see the point of advertising for your services or agency, but that would require that you provide some sort of contact information (website, phone number, etc.). The only other explanation that I could come up with is that this nurse does hospice/home health and is trying to get people to not mess with the car. Still, do people who would mess with the car know that a BSN is a degree for nurses? If I were to do that I'd have a temporary sign (like the pizza places) that said something like "Home health nurse" as appropriate for the nature of my work.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Would you put a similar sign on your car?
P.S. If it's your car I have nothing against you and am just confused as to what the purpose is. And thank you for driving well and fast.
