Sometimes you will still find a vehicle with some sort of bumper sticker on it. If not a bumper sticker then maybe a static sticker or vinyl lettering on a window, either was it's a still a "thing."

Other things you might find on cars, trucks, vans, or SUVs are holiday decor, maybe an American flag, maybe sort of Christmas lights, the possibilities are endless.

It seems most "decor" on the outside of a civilian vehicle tends to be related to politics but maybe I'm wrong.

Sometimes odd bumper or static stickers or vinyl letters catches my eyes while at an intersection. This is undoubtedly one of those times but it was something completely unexpected.

I was traveling north on Alpine Road in Rockford when I noticed Sara Lee bread truck a short distance in front of me. Nothing out of the ordinary stood the first time I noticed the truck, which would change and create wonder/confusion.

As I was catching up to this break truck I noticed something odd, it looked like there was a clothes hanger hanging on the back of the delivery truck. "Wait, what" was the first question that popped into my head.


It was close to 5 am when this was happening so I wanted to be sure my eyes were playing games early in the morning. I sped up enough just to catch a glimpse to confirm it was what I thought it was or confirm that I was seeing things.

I went to the never-failing Google machine but couldn't find any relevant to the question of why the hanger might be hanging there on the upper left of the truck. For now, unless you know something different, let's believe it was hung there and forgotten about by mistake.
