Oh, How the Locals Will Gape at Your Ferrari as You Parade It Through Union Square – Giant Windows, Mirror Finish

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Here’s the back of the flatbed truck hauling your new/newish Ferrari on Geary to your crib, which I’m guessing is in Pac Heights.

Bye bye, Ferrari…

If you have any beefs with these buses, you’re supposed to call 311, that’s what the new phone icon means. And then you tell them, “Bus 09-5016 just run me over,” or something. That’s the system, baby.

The prefix “09” means LUX LEASING LLC. What’s that? Who the Hell knows, Gentle Reader. It’s some company, somewhere.

And now we’re at the back. Here’s something new to me – a HOW’S MY DRIVING sticker:

‘Cause the “Luxury” Leasing ppl want you complaining to them afore you call up SFGov with your bus beef.

This is how things stand with corporate buses in Frisco in the second half of 2016…

The Quiet Scene After a Hit and Run on Clement?

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

One assumes. The Mercedes driver seemed combobulated enough, but she was satisfied to sit there for minutes and minutes. (This would not have been my reaction.)

One attempts to offer assistance, but then one just moves on with one’s day as the snap crackle and pop, pop, pop of traffic driving over Mercedes plastic fades away…

I think in Miami your car could be worth $3000 less for not having a goofy color, but here in Frisco it’s the opposite.

On The Job Training: This is What It Looks Like When a Corporate Bus BLOCKS THE BOX at Fell and Masonic

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

You don’t see MUNI operators¬†doing this at this particular intersection, but here you go – a corporate bus driver trying to head south on Masonic at Fell. Westbound traffic ended up simply going around the back of the bus, with priority going to your nimbler forms of transpo:

HONK HONK HONK went the numerous blocked drivers, some of whom were delayed for like a minute and a half, oh well.

I’m not saying it’s easy driving in Frisco. It’s just something that you have to get used to…

I was going to flash “16” to them to show I was down, but I didn’t know how.

(Guess all it takes to form an army in Frisco is free box lunch and giveaway T-shirts. And flags. Lots o’ flags…)
