The Super-Busy Fishermans Wharf In-N-Out Burger Has a Whopper for You: The Capacity is Just “59 Guests?”

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

C”mon!

There’s never a time when there’s not 59 guests in this place.

I mean, there are at least 59 guests all the time just waiting to pick up their chow, right?

San Francisco’s SFMTA is a Jobs Program, Not a Transit Agency

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

IMO.

If the SFMTA really wanted to fight fare fraud, it could take the money it spends this bizarre fare inspection regime and put it into a program that watches cable car workers. Get together a few GoPro cameras plus a few marked $5 bills and just one “inspector” could have prosecutable proof of “fare fraud” being committed by numerous, numerous SFMTA employees.  Tie the evidence up in a bow and send it over to the DA’s office, right? Oh what’s that, SFMTA? Fighting your own corruption is hard but handing out money to new fare inspectors is easy? OK fine.

Since Time Began:

INTERLOCUTOR: Hey SFMTA, what about [_______?]

SFMTA: If we only had more money! Give us more money.

The SFPD Union Wants More Money for San Francisco Cops, So Here Come the Billboards and YouTube Videos

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Here’s the big brand-new billboard from the San Francisco Police Officers Association. See?

You can check it out it at the Masonic Trader Joe’s from atop the Geary Tunnel:

Now I think the SFPOA’s old slogan was “Double Dipping 4 Ever – It’s Our Way of Life.” But, as you can see, it’s now, “THEY WORK TO MAKE YOUR DAY.”

Get it? “Make your day?” I get it! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!. You so cray-cray Gary Delagnes! (But hey Gare-Bear, do the Warner Brothers know what you’re doing with their Dirty Harry catchphrase? Just asking, Bro.)

Anywho, here it is on the YouTube. I think it’s entitled “More Money for Us, Less Money for You.”

What’s coming up next week from this campaign? These are my guesses:

“Here are six different reasons why Public Defender Jeff Adachi totally sucks.”

or

“Give us more money or everybody dies.”

All right, SFPD. Get out there and Make My Day!

Amazingly, None of the Bikes in the Updated SFPD Mission Station Recovered Bike Database are Fixies

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

I thought most of the bikes in the flat, flat Mission District were fixies these days, but I guess not:

Here are the the latest photos of the recovered rides:

Hey, Did Somebody Steal Your Bike? Well, Look For It at the New SFPD Mission Station Website Photo Database!

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Right here. (Cause, you know, the Mission District is San Francisco’s Capital of Bike Stealing.)

See?

“New bicycle section on http://www.missionstation.org to track reported stolen and recovered stolen bicycles. Send us your feedback!”

But sadly, the Recovered Bicycle Database only has one entry right now – it’s a black Specialized road bike that I’m sure you’ll recognize in a second, if it’s yours.

“For Information: Inspector Pomatto #2071 Mission Investigations (415) 558-5400″

OTOH, the Stolen Bicycle Database has eight entries currently. See?

Thanks, Captain Corrales!

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

The answer is no, butterfly sunglasses are not enough of a disguise to rob a bank.

Anyway, the SFPD is looking for this gal, FYI.

San Francisco Election Inspector: The Toughest Job You’ll Ever Love

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

(Or, maybe it’s the The Toughest Job You’ll Never Love. Haven’t decided yet, actually.)

I’ll tell you, if you ever decide to work on a one-day gig as an Election Inspector for the City and County of San Francisco, they’ll be sure to give you a checklist of tasks that stretches a mile. But, I’ll tell you, The System Works.

If people take the effort to vote, San Francisco will make enormous efforts to see that those votes gets tabulated.

Anyway, that’s the lesson I learned after pulling a double shift (16 hours!) yesterday.

I don’t know if I’ll be available to ever, ever do this again, but you, well, get involved if you want.
