Driving down the street…

Posted by onlyinsanfrancisco on July 10, 2006

Only in San Francisco…
….. got my cell phone in one hand, turning the wheel with the other. California & Davis Streets, I’m having a schmoke, and a guy coming shuffling along in his wheel chair. Now this ain’t no ordinary guy in a wheel chair. I know you’re probably picturing some older dude, one leg missing, possibly homeless or mentally challenged, right?

This guy rolling down the street in his wheel chair was sportin’ his business suite, hair gel’d up, sunglasses on… and talking on his cell phone in one hand while he tried to scoot his way to the corner with one healthy leg and the other hand spinning the wheel.

I tell yah… people won’t let up on the cell phones in ANY situation!!

Achey breaky back!

Only in San Francisco…

Could you have back problems from riding MUNI. Ouch.
Between last night and this morning’s bus rides, my back is killing me!

Last night on the way home, I sat next to a big guy [what was I thinking?] and we happen to be on the old buses where the seats are more “bucket style” than they are now-a-days. My ass fit 3/4 of the way on the seats but because the man’s shoulder were so broad, my upper torso was crooked. Argh. I can’t tell you how many times I thought about offering my seat to the woman standing near me. I’m guestimating at least 30 times.

The man must have thought I had ants in my pants with all the squirming around. But really I was trying to keep my back from hurting without trying to hurt my ass from being on the edge of the seat!!!
Then, this morning… we got Mr. Cranky on the bus. I really don’t believe these bus drivers have EVER sat in the back of a bus!! Either that of they continually fuck with us.

Mr. Cranky had his foot to the petal this morning and there were more than 3 or 4 occasions where he braked soooooooo hard that I thought maybe I just wasn’t going to be able to hold on any more and I’d go flying onto someone… but luckily I caught my balance, unfortunately at the expense of my back which is now KILLING me!

welcome to “Only in San Francisco”

Posted by onlyinsanfrancisco on February 26, 2006

Or San Franfreakshow.

Or San Fran.

Or Frisco.

Or San Fransicko.

Or my favorite: The City

I created this blog because I believe San Francisco is one of the most unique places in the world! One of the reasons is because it attracts the most unique people. Therefore, when I see or hear of something somewhat unusual I think to myself, “only in san francisco would something like that take place”. And remember, I’m a native San Franciscan, it’s amazing I can even differentiate between “normal” normal and “weird” normal!!!  So this will be a place to come to see, hear, and learn about San Francisco, if all goes the way I want it to.  😛
