IDK, filming something, prolly.

And the flat black paint reduces reflections, that’s what I’m going with.

But when you film in SF, you face a lot of costs. That’s what killed Nash Bridges after a few years and that’s what also helped to kill Trauma after a few months worth of shows got aired.

Anyway, we’re no Vancouver, that’s for sure…

Scraaaaaaaape: DPW Truck vs. MUNI Bus on Market Street – But No Harm No Foul – The City Family Abides

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Is it easy to drive a big ol’ Ford F-450 Super Duty pick-em-up truck around Market Street what with all the MUNI buses and streetcars, and with all the peds walking around like a chicken with its head cut off?

Probably not.

As here, on Market the other day, when the driver of this white DPW truck, which has stickers on it saying “Tax Dollars At Work,” cut a corner too close and loudly scraped up the left rear corner of a MUNI bus.

The aftermath  – a little bit stuck:

Now when you think about it, there’s really no point in reporting this one, because the bus still works and the truck still works and is the City Family going to write a check to the City Family to compensate for the losses of the City Family? I think not.

So all you can do is pick up the stuff what fell off the back of the big pickup and offer it up to the embarrassed DPW worker.

Dude, here’s your shovel back:

So, no harm no foul, except for a scraped-up bus, which probably had its fair share of scrapes already.

And it’s all, well yeah, I screwed that one up but no biggee.

Too bad others in SFGov can’t similarly admit mistakes…
