Just got back from a four day "let's check the city out" trip in anticipation of our move in March. Couldn't wait to get home.

In no particular order:

Cabs, if you can find one, are filthy with drivers who have no idea where they are going.
Homeless crack heads are insanely aggressive. I had to push a guy away from my wife. Next time I bring an axe.
Waiters are way too chummy and have no idea how do do their job. Look, pal - you are not part of our conversation; don't touch me when telling me the specials; and don't remove an empty plate until we're all finished. I finally had to tell a waiter to leave the plate and he looked at me like I killed his puppy.
There's garbage on the street.
The women look like men. Up close, ugly men.
The residents are like Stepford employees of the tourism board. "Oh, you'll love it here. Did you know you can ski in the morning and surf in the afternoon?" Look closely in their eyes, however, and what you see is a tinge of fear. As if they are trapped in the Billy Mumy Twilight Zone episode.

I met up with an ex-New Yorker and asked him why the fuck everyone was so nice. He replied, "It's nice to be nice." Fuck me.

I was blindsided by one line in a contract and am now royally fucked.

lefty
Yeah…
But the creamed spinach at House of Prime Rib?

Edit: wooooooooo.
on the phone and realized I responded to a decades old post.
I regret nothing.

^ Yep. And all of the crazy stuff in that article would also be true under California—the inability to withdraw the measure, not being able to submit argument in favor. It’s not just a San Francisco thing. And initiative proponents regularly mess up drafting the law.

The article quotes a woman who has been dating for...17 years. This reminds me of the 31-year-old catcher still in double A ball. If it hasn't happened by now...
I kinda want to know why "wokeness" and "cultural awareness" are separate buckets?
