Here’s why I’m not an employee of the Uber:
Cause like every day I’d be saying, “Can we do that? I don’t think we can do that. Can we say that? I don’t think we can say that.”
I’d be a big Captain Bringdown / Jiminy Cricket.
Like here, a couple years back, on Market. I passed by this scene and so then I contacted the Uber people by email on my cell…
…and I was all, “Can you do that? I don’t think you can do that.”
Why? Because it’s a chalk ad on a Frisco sidewalk and that aint kosher.
I mean, I didn’t know for sure, maybe somebody had approved this and the Uber people had permits, who knows. I was simply “issue-spotting,” as they say.
So then, a half-hour later, the Uberers had these ads hastily obliterated, more or less, as best they could.
An overly-confident pedestrian is a dead pedestrian, sometimes:
Oh, here’s the same scene a few blocks up the road:

You’d make it simpler for the fuzz if you’d transfer your booze to a water bottle or something. Simply putting your 40 in a paper bag or, in this case, black fabric(?), doesn’t cut it.
So they’ll pour your brew out right in front of you. And then quickly move on to the friction of the day, no muss, no fuss.
Instead of heading up the hill to get back to their ride, these gals walked downhill a few paces and then used congested traffic near Geary to their advantage:
That’s better than most, of course.
What they’re doing is turning a complicated, deadly game of chicken into a simpler chore of waiting for northbound traffic to get a red and then shuffling across two lanes…
As seen on Fell Street
(Did the driver flip off the DMV as he whizzed by, you know, screaming, “Stick It To The Man?” He seems to lack respect for authoritah.)
In any event, this backhoe (aka rear actor and back actor - Gentle Reader, please don’t punch any of these terms into the Urban Dictionary, perish the thought) seemed to be keeping up with traffic…
