Default Color me stupid for not knowing BUT

What is the reason for people putting the little bath poofs in different colors on their car antennas? Someone suggested it was an invitation for um “companionship “ . Some say it’s just a way to find their car in the parking lot. Inquiring minds want to know!

my guess is that it's a way to find one's car in the parking lot....there are no numbers on the light poles...and many of us have similar looking vehicles

Point taken. Not my image. It's an internet image apparently created by reddit.com. I'll remove it, but a Google search will find it.
