    "Salt Life" bumper stickers on cars with tags from counties hundreds of miles away from saltwater.

    I think the stickers are kind of dumb in the first place, but I can deal with it from people who really do spend a lot of time on the water. However, if you are a kid from metro Atlanta whose family owns a vacation condo in the Florida panhandle, you are not living the salt life. You are an annoying tourist.

    Is that what those stickers mean? I had thought it meant someone who had done time in prison working on a chain gang in a salt mine.

    I think you've spent too much time in prison.

    :laugh:

    Yeah, it's one of those "lifestyle" things. As in, they live the "ocean lifestyle."

    Based upon the demographic I see sporting it in their windows, I don't think they've done a day of manual labor at all, much less on a chain gang.

    Hm. I've never seen one of those. Is it a Florida thing?

    I think the company is based down there, but it's not exclusively a Florida thing. I live in Georgia, and I seem to see them more often here than when I'm in Florida.

    Maybe it's a regional thing?

    That's my guess. Or maybe a poser thing. Probably both.

    From Bobby it is quite funny. Not every wop could get away with that though.

    I am in North Carolina and can see salt water from my house. Never heard of the Salt Life.
