Wicker seats, baby!

Perhaps it’s tropponuova” to be called a Fiat 500 Topolino, but shoegazers are on my side…

Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all you’re charms
I’ve never been inside you but you’re so alluring
They call you “little mouse” by name in Rome and Turin

UBER Lyft Driver Takes a Break in a Busy Geary Crosswalk to Fiddle with a Dash-Mounted Cell Phone – OH WAIT, IT’S AN SFMTA TAXI DRIVER

IDK, he might have stopped two spaces later, in a metered spot, if it hadn’t been taken. And I know he would have parked one space later, by the hydrant in a red zone, if it hadn’t been taken.

But no, he’s in the crosswalk, for a good long time, talking minutes here, and then it’s dash-mounted cell phone this and cell phone that, just like an UBER Lyft driver:

I can’t recall seeing such UBER-ish behavior from a regular licensed cabbie.

There’s no radio dispatcher, it’s all app-based these days? Seems that way.

Back in the day, he’d have double-parked on Geary for the ten seconds it takes to offload and then have been on his way.

My, how things have changed in Frisco…
