Some time ago, I saw a car with the license plate TEADR. It made me wonder, what kind of doctor specializes in tea? I learned later, when I enrolled my kids in an etiquette class (yes, I am too uncultured to teach them good manners, and I hope they will be less barbaric than me), that their etiquette instructor, who has a PhD in counseling, owns that car with the intriguing plate.
Vanity plates or personalized plates gives us a peek of who the car’s owner is. These custom registration plates can be requested at the DMV with an additional fee. I believe in Iowa it is about $30. What is $30, if you already have a $50K (or $100K or even $200K) car to affix it to? One survey stated that about 10 million vehicles in the US have vanity plates.
Here are some license plates that I have seen in our doctor’s parking area. Can you tell what specialty they are in?
I have no desire to get a vanity plate. But if in case I will, what should my plate say? Here’s some that I have concocted:
