Um, You’re Doing It Wrong

I’ve noticed a lot of people are doing it wrong. By “it” I mean “everything,” but I’m just going to start with email and Facebook.

It's like spam has just given up. And that's a bit sad.
AJesusAd
Gosh, with less than 700,000 likes, it's no wonder Jesus took out an ad.
VicksVapoRubisdoingitwrong
If I get VapoRub for Mother's Day, I'll be pissed.

Well, now that I’ve assured that Vick’s VapoRub or Jesus never advertise on Late Enough, my work here seems to be done.

PS. I demanded Scott chase down an SUV with an ironic license plate, which is what inspired this blog, but I can’t post the picture even though these people are DEFINITELY DOING IT WRONG because I live in Richmond so either one of my family members works with them or one of my friends is besties with them. If only the car had cut me off, I could post the picture with a clear and vengeful conscience.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents an 2 elementary age children, 4 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Hey Alex, check out my photo album called Suffering Succotash! on Facebook. It has an inappropriate license plate in there, a van with the plate KDNPPR or something to that effect. Cali plate so you may not offend anyone… There is also a picture of a shampoo bottle with Whale sperm as an ingredient. Go, look, now!

  2. As a fellow Richmonder, now I’m dying to know the license plate! I’ve seen several recently that have made me wonder about the driver… (and I know the one you saw didn’t belong to me or my family, as we all have boring plates!!)

  3. OK, these are hilarious, especially VapoRub. But how can you taunt us with that license plate? Can you tell us what it said without posting a picture? They must know their license plate is funny/ironic…

    1. Dude, I know. I had the good angel “this blog shouldn’t hurt anyone” versus the hilarious devil “omg these people cannot be doing this on purpose” — the angel won mostly because I’d ended up parked next to them a few days later.

  4. And now of course I want to know who has more “likes”:

    Jesus or VapoRub?

    Anyway, Happy Women’s Friendship Day to you, Alex!
    I’m celebrating by driving around in a car with state-issued plates.
    BO-RING, I know.

    But not ironic. Much.
