Armed Forces Recruiting Center, 670 Davis Near Broadway, Just North of the Financial District of San Francisco, CA

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

I’ll tell you, if you like to see people walking around 415 dans l’uniforme, then late 2001 would have been the time for you. Military-types were all over town.

But these days, you don’t see that anymore, for some reason. These days, you need to go down the Armed Forces Recruiting Center in the sleepy North of Financial District area to see men and women in uniform.

See the door on the left? They’re* hiring!

Don’t you think it’s time for you to join WillieBrownGavinNewsomEdLee’s somewhat corrupt “City Family?”

Sure, why not?

You’ll get to share beer (or rather, steal beer or rather, actually, IRL, pour out beer) with San Francisco’s lovely citizens:

Thusly:

Now, I’m not saying that this application process is easy, not at all.*

But I am saying that this might be for you:

Are You an Ordinary Person? Then Why Not Join the SFPD and Make $78k per Year?

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Here are the requirements for you to get started with your new career in law enforcement.

See? It says “Ordinary People Doing the Extraordinary.”

Click on over and see if you qualify. Hiring’s done for 2009, but 2010 is just around the corner.

As seen last month.

I’ve heard that a typical starting salary is closer to $78K than $72K, but you can ask them about the exact figure if it makes a big diff. to you.

Potential Church of Scientology Recruit on Market Street Advised: “Run Girl, Run!”

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

This was how it looked back in the day on Market Street near the Old Navy Flagship Store at the intersection of Fourth and Towne Market. The Church of Scientology had some of its members do some outreach, perhaps they still do that these days.

Anyway, you touch “the cans” and that shows how much stress you have, or something. (Actually, one thing the test tells you how much your grip changes when you hold the cans – do you think that’s a useful measure of anything?)

So, one problem is that the whole idea is ridiculous and another is that the Scientologist him/herself might be pressured into buying one of the E-Meters the metal can things are connected to. That’s something on the order of $4000 – an awful lot for a P.O.S., really. Even the eBay price seems to have no relationship to the cost of the parts used to make it. So who’s the real victim in this photo? Hard to tell.

Presenting the “Mark Super VII Quantum E-meter

Anyway, a passerby suggested to the person in the first photo to, “Drop the cans and run. Run Girl, Run!”

San Francisco Church of Scientology Holds an Open House – Recruiting on Columbus

Friday, September 4th, 2009

This is the scene you’ll see these days at 701 Montgomery betwixt the Financh and North Beach – it’s Open House at the Scientology Mothership!

Well, let’s hear the pitch, from spokesmodel Tom Cruise. O.K. fine.  

Fresh-faced recruits/
For ghastly pursuits:

And let’s hear from the other side, from a recent visitor to the building

“The man from the front came over and said it was a “stress tester” and I immediately volunteered (at this point my date is wondering how fast he can drop me off).  I held these silver canisters in my hands and watched this needle.  

Scientologist: How’s work is going?
A: Fine.  
Scientologist: What is your boss’ name?
A: Erica  
[Needle was pretty steady.]  
Scientologist: What’s your Mom’s name?
A: Pat  
[Needle moves up a bit.]  
Scientologist: What’s your Dad’s name?
A: Bob.  
[Needle jumps.]  
Scientologist: Ah…there is some tension with your Dad!
A: No, in fact, I am closer to him than my Mom. (I do understand why that’s a safe bet – most of my friends have issues with their Dad.)
[Scientologist ignores this comment and moves on.]  
Scientologist: Are you married or dating?
A: This guy right here.  (I should write a book on what not to do when you just start dating someone.)
[Needle moves up a bit.]  
Scientologist: Well what would you say is causing you the most stress in your life right now? (Reminded me of when Kramer pretended to be the movie phone guy, “Well why don’t you just tell me the name of the movie you want to see?”)”

The story goes on, check it out.
