Not Many Takers for Frisco Phone Book Delivery the Past Month – Is “YP” Just a Scam to Separate Advertisers from Their Money?

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

This is my current theory. If the cost of production and delivery is less than what you can get out of advertisers, then you have an operating business, it seems, even if every last one of these unwanted “books” gets recycled within a few days of them getting dumped off.

Just a theory.

Party Poopers Put Up a Sign at California and Mason – Simple “HILL” on Nob Hill Replaced with “LOW GROUND CLEARANCE”

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

Back in my day, a simple say saying “HILL” was all that prevented out of towners with long vehicles from high centering, and that was the way we liked it!

But these days, we get a graphic graphic:

The signs I can see online all have railroad tracks and just three lighting bolts, so maybe this is a custom job…

Ah, mem’ries:

THE FUTURE IS NOW: Free, Ad-Supported, Electric Charging at Serramonte – THE MALL HAS IT ALL

Monday, September 11th, 2017

I guess the ad is what’s new here – I’ve never seen this:

Serramonte Center is your prototypical mall. It’s undergoing an urbanist-inspired makeover that makes it an even less attractive place to go to. I’ll tell you, I’m not going to go there and then complain about going there on a regular basis, it’s just that my special lady friend had something delivered to the fucking mall (like why would you want to go there?) instead of to herself, by mistake, and of course it wasn’t her mistake. But what can you do? So you drive on down there and there are zero parking spaces and all this, as I said, urbanist-type crap (huge sidewalks, aesthetic plantings what take up a lot of room) that they are constructing. There’s no place to park as they are making new multilevel structures and there’s no real place to drop people off close to the stores. It’s a hybrid of old and new, and it’s not looking good. And of course even after they finish it’s still not going to be good.

JMO.
