The state of New Hampshire has asked Lilac City Grille bartender Wendy Auger to turn in her 15-year-old plate reading “PB4WEGO,” which stands for “pee before we go,” because phrases related to excretory acts aren’t permitted.
Apparently, license plates referring to ‘human waste’ are not allowed.
The phrase however, ‘Pee before we go’ is a widely used one around the globe — especially by parents!
Auger is fighting it, filing an appeal for the recall because she believes it’s a free speech issue and that the phrase isn’t offensive.
“Who has a mom or dad or parental figure who hasn’t said that to kids before leaving the house?” Auger asked. “I’m not the type to sit here with a picket, but come on.”
A spokesperson for the DMV and Department of Safety said plates must be rejected “when they do not conform to legal requirements” within the administrative rules set by the state Legislature. He said there is a mechanism in place “to recall a plate should one be issued that should not have been.”
“It would just stink if I don’t have it anymore,” said Auger, who frequently receives honks from other motorists and compliments from people who photograph the plate because they’ve found it funny. “If I have to take it off the plate, then I’m not going to be able to live free.”
What do you think? Not a big deal right?
