I was waiting for a green light the other day, and I noticed the car in front of me was displaying one of those stick figure families on their back window. I’ve been noticing more and more of these lately, though I’m a bit perplexed as to the purpose they’re intended to serve. On this occasion, the BMW in front of me showed a Dad holding a briefcase, while the mother figure held a briefcase in one hand and a laptop in the other. The stick figure family included one child, a boy holding a soccer ball. There were no pets in this busy professional family.

Since these stick figure families are becoming more personalized in an effort to make a bigger, better statement about who they truly are, I decided to investigate further:

Dad is handy.  Mom likes to shop.  Big sister plays soccer.  Little sister seems a bit miffed, and the family has a pair of cats who ignore one another.
This one depicts a big family, with Dad wearing a tie and holding a briefcase.  Everyone seems happy, including the family pets.
Dad plays golf while Mom is on the computer.  Sis is either a cheerleader or she takes ballet lessons, I’m not sure.  Little brother likes to wear a cape, and the dog is wondering what he’s doing in this family.
This family enjoys riding their bikes together.
This family, including the cat and dog, ride motorcycles.  Is that legal?
Sporty, athletic family----very impressive.  I want to be in this family.
Festive family
I’m thinking this family has at least three Christmas inflatables on their front lawn,
and finally,
She likes to shop, and he’s still in a garage band.  This is clearly a family that’s not yet ready for any stick figure children!
