A recent graduate of The Ohio State University moved to Dearborn, Michigan to take a new job. After becoming a citizen of Michigan, she felt almost as if she had betrayed her Ohio background and ancestry. She had an apartment with a Michigan address, and she winced whenever she looked at her Michigan driver’s license. When it came time to register her vehicle she had an idea. She’d get personalized plates and make things right.
The personalized license plate for her car arrived, and she beamed as she installed them. She was so proud she sent an instant message to her father right away. He too was a proud Ohio State alumnus. “Daddy,” she typed. “I’m so excited! I got new, personalized plates for my Mini today. They’re University of Michigan plates!” He replied, “WHAT? You have to be joking!” She said, “Nope, I’m totally serious. Let me send you the image.”
Her father couldn’t stop laughing after he viewed the picture of her car.
