Stop yelling at me

This afternoon I found yet another reason why I abhor Hummers. On the drive home it was right there in front of me, the Hummer with the make in all caps. HUMMER. If it's not an acronym or abbreviation, why is it necessary? It's loud and, in electronic communication, it's yelling. I rolled my eyes and let out a frustrated sigh.

But then I started noticing other cars and realized all the makes were in caps, except for the Mazeratti, but that's more along the lines of whispering to be heard. So, I felt like a hypocrite. And then I saw yet another gas guzzling tank of a HUMMER on the road and realized the real source of my new found additional reason I hate HUMMERS. It's not the caps, it the size of the caps. I'd say those letters on the back are five inches and the ones along the side are even taller. As if we couldn't figure out what kind of tank that was by the size? At least the other cars and trucks are appropriately sized caps, off to the size of the tailgate or trunk, not front and center. Hey, Hummers, lower your voice, I can see you, I can hear you. I have no doubt who you are.

LOL. I thought I was the only one who thought they were yelling at me as they pass.

A few boyfriends ago when Hummers were still relatively new I said to him,
"I want a Hummer"
In true male fashion he replied,
"Me too."

Is it me or are Hummers the standard vehicle for sports figures?
