I think I hate San Francisco. - Page 172

A friend of a friend says he actually interacted with this woman, and she was blind drunk. She'd left her purse unattended, and he suggested to her that it wasn't such a good idea to do so.

Oh dear. Such hothouse flowers, these new folks.

She was in the Lower Haight. She got rolled. Next?

Reminds me of the time my friend started charging people a cover to get into the Toronado. He looked like a bouncer, so people just handed over $5 until we made him stop and buy us a round with the proceeds.

It helps if you're built like a linebacker and are wearing a spiked leather jacket.

This is insane.

So I'm taking the 49 tonight after Plenary. I get on, it's hella crowded and there are two dirtbags in the back tearing up the laminated windows. 300lb Driver stops bus, gets out, walks to the back door, gets in, tells dirtbags off and ejects them from vehicle. Bus continues up Van Ness.

BUT WAIT.

Across the aisle is sitting some jackass who is, for lack of a better description, stimulating himself in his seat. His fly is open, and he is using a fanny pack to camouflage his activity, and it's bouncing up and down.

Mind you, the bus is crowded. Some poor guy is sitting next to him while he's doing this. The sideways wheel well bench is right in front of him, and it's full. And I and several other folks are standing around him, and we can all see what he is doing. Every now and then he's flashing us.

Because it's so crowded, we all basically try to ignore him, apart from the teens who are snickering hysterically.

Once we pass Bush street or so the bus thins out a bit and the whacker moves back to the back seat - next to a woman - and starts whacking himself again.

So I decide to play white knight and head up to the driver, past the front half of the bus which is still crowded. Mid-crawl I'm called out by a colleague, and all I can do is look at her with my mouth open, point to the front of the bus, and keep going.

After climbing over a stroller, I reach the front of the bus, where the driver is giving directions to another passenger. So, I have to interrupt and say, louder than I intended, "Driver, sorry, but there's a dude playing with himself in the back."

Driver stops bus, we get out, go back in the back door, and driver bounces chili-peeler off the bus.

Back to normal. I head back to my colleague and explain what happened. She's in her 70's, and was nonplussed.

Should I crosspost this the the transit thread?

Alameda is a strange place.

Her mix of stereotypically black patois and California-isms was amusing to me.

 SAN FRANCISCO — Tourists who lean against the wind as they cross the Golden Gate Bridge may miss the slow-moving woman without a purse or the solo man without a camera or running shoes.
 
Last year was a record: 46 people plunged to their deaths from the majestic orange bridge. Bridge workers stopped 118 others.

Why, exactly, do we want to prevent suicides?
