    God you must have been desperate. Dunkin Donuts coffee? I know it's some east coast thing - but I just don't get it. This is the equivalent of Chicago people insisting that Deep Dish is good Pizza.

    I was hoping for a server weighed down by life.

    In all sincerity, I do hope you can learn to at least find it a bit less detestable.


    I do await the epic SF curmudgeon meetup between you and Iam. It might actually be the first place I'll ever travel to. I think it would be worth it.

    Join the club.

    Alvy Singer: The... the other important joke, for me, is one that's usually attributed to Groucho Marx; but, I think it appears originally in Freud's "Wit and Its Relation to the Unconscious," and it goes like this - I'm paraphrasing - um, "I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member." That's the key joke of my adult life...

    Oh, please. The last thing we need is for more coffee connoisseurs and amateur baristas to extol the virtues of a city in decline.

    You'll be happy to know that people here are really not friendly, and in the long run, quite cold. They get more detestable over time. I will quote what I wrote in another thread: It's weird, when I was in high school, in the late '80s, we would come up to the city (I lived about 40 minutes south) and it seemed like an amazing place. There were all sorts of different people, black, latino, hippies, business types etc. It was cool. Now it is just a bunch of 30-45 year olds who say nothing but "I'm in finance, but I'm soooo into social justice. I'm totally going on a hike this weekend before I play volleyball down at Marina Green. I'm so stoked because I got a new custom fleece, and it will be perfect with my farty craft beer once we get to the end of our hike. I just wish I could embroider my fraternity letters along with "Hope and Change" on the inside."

    Haha, good luck in the real world - you are going to need it. If a overly cheerful girl at a coffee shop pisses you off, haha

    Seriously. I wish for cheerful girls at coffee shops. All these hip coffee places around me have barista's that purposely look bored and act disinterested.

    You only say that because you have options. If you were forced to buy coffee at Dunkin Donuts, like those poor bastards on the East Coast, you'd be singing a different song.

    They really do have the most aggressive goddamn bums there! Most cities you can politely say 'no thank you' or blank them and they'll leave you be. In SF you need to hit them with the 'double tap' just to be sure. Oh how I miss the days of having to ride public transport there then relating my daily horror stories to people who lived elsewhere. Ok, no I don't.
    Yeah, I like LA better than SF, but I feel I am the only one.
    I think you may be. LA's like a 'Phoenix by the sea'.

    That does make me a little happy, though the second city delusion will be a pain in the ass to deal with.

    At one point I turned to my wife and and said that the only thing that could make this worse is if someone started telling us about their startup. That night we listened politely as an acquaintance told us about the new startup he was investing in and we should jump in.

    Chicago had the most aggressive bums I've experienced.

    Except LA actually has more than strip malls.
