Proud UC Berkeley Grad Gets All Honky and Then Skids Around a Lumbering Truck – A Kind of Audi-Induced Road Rage

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Dude’s coming down Ashbury and he can see from the countdown timer that he’s at risk of missing the green due to a slow-moving commercial vehicle making the same turn onto Oak.

So Dude honks his Audi’s horn, pulls into the opposite lane and then goes around the truck with wheels a-chirping.

All this ado allowed the Audi driver to make the green at Masonic and then at Fell, so maybe he saved a minute-something in time.

(Do bad drivers just pick Audis or do Audis make people bad drivers?¬†I believe it’s mostly the former but don’t underestimate the latter.)

Anyway, if the reason why the truck was going slow had been a late-starting ped heading north in the crosswalk, then blammo, with the ped being at fault for entering a crosswalk under a flashing DON’T WALK and the Audi pilot being even more at fault for turning one lane into two and turning the truck into a blind corner.

Not too far away from here, a world-famous drunk driver with alcohol in her system started walking across Fell too late and got killed by a car going around a slower vehicle, which of course, was waiting for the ped to cross. That’s a similar situation, IMO.

There you have it, look at me, I have an Audi, look at me, I went to UC, look at me, zoom zoom.

What’s This, San Francisco Examiner, You’re the “Highest Circulation Newspaper in San Mateo and San Francisco?”

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

I saw an ad from the San Francisco Examiner on the Bay to Breakers website the other day what claimed the claim above.

Is it true? I don’t know.

Anyway, here’s the claim on the same website from a couple year’s back:

All right, I’ll have to check that BtoB site again, to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me regarding the San Mateo plus San Francisco claim.

But, you know, you don’t have to be #1 in everything all the time, ‘Xam.

You could just be yourself and be happy with that….

Sorry Examiner, You’re Not “the #1 Newspaper in San Francisco”

No, Examiner, despite what that 160×600 skyscraper¬†ad at the Bay to Breakers website says, you’re not number one in any:

Way;

Shape; or

Form

D’accord?

D’accord.
