San Francisco Viral Video: An Uptown Tenderloin Thief Patiently Waits to Steal a MacBook Air – Blonde vs. Brunette

Monday, April 7th, 2014

This one’s gone viral, this coffee shop video.

Watch the last part first and then watch the whole thing over again:

Note the thief’s ridiculous get-up. Is she really a blonde? Is that a wig under the beanie hat?

Note her dime store purse – see how she asks her original mark to watch it for her, you know, to establish a trusting environment?

And of what use is a MacBook without its expensive power cord?

Mmmm…

But I’ll tell you, millions of people will end up seeing this video of the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, up there at Post and Taylor.

The victim feels that SF is “an amazing city otherwise.”

UPDATE: If you have any more information about the girl in black and white, please reach out to the San Francisco Police Department at (415) 315-2400.

Case Number: 140281005

I am a freelance iOS developer. I live and work in San Francisco. A total tragedy happened to me yesterday. My virtual limbs (aka MacBook Air and iPhone) were stolen at a local coffee shop on Post st. and Taylor st. in SF Downtown area. Months worth of creative work I stored on my device will be lost forever, if I can’t catch this girl and get my computer back. Click here for new New Updates

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AND HELP GET MY COMPUTER BACK!

Location: Post & Taylor

Time of Crime: April 4, 4:35pm (The time in surveillance camera is 12 hours off)

At 3:20pm, This blonde thief comes into the coffee shop and eyes my computer.”

And now a word for the trolls:

Thank u thank u. All my friends and good Samaritans out there who are helping me in my effort to get my computer back. Had a few people on YouTube and Reddit who claimed they know her. Yay!

The thief still remains at large. Any tips will be appreciated.

On the side note, too many trolls are flooding the posts with hateful comments and are distracting people from finding this thief. Most of those people are putting blame on me. Calling me stupid and deserving to have these expensive electronics stolen from me. I know I shouldn’t have left my computer unattended but I had false sense of security because I go to the same coffee shop every day and I know every single employee and regulars who were there when the crime happened. But how can a decent person defend an apparent thief who came in with one motive in mind, which was to steal someone’s computer. The thief sat there for an hour looking around to find her target and did not hesitate to take advantage of the opportune moment. This could happen to anyone the moment you drop your guard a little at a public place. I’m determined to find this thief for the principle of the matter and hope that no other coders/designers/any other techies around the Bay Area who love their computer more than anything fall victim to this bottom feeding scumbag bitch.

One more note, I got all my codes backed up unlike some trolls bashed me about. What I lost is some of my illustrations and most recent personal files.”

Grinch Christmas Musical a Huge Success at Our Golden Gate Theatre – But Hurry, the Family Fun Ends Dec. 29th!

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Here’s the review from the orchestra seats from last night’s San Francisco debut of Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical:

“It ain’t easy being green, but the Grinch sure makes it look fun! He struts, howls and grows endearingly lovable as he learns the Whos know Christmas comes from your heart and not the stores. Now everyone sing to that!”

It’s a live-action cartoon.

It looks just as you might expect:

So if you’re coming into town for shopping (or unshopping, during the days after Christmas), why not add some Grinch tickets to the fun?

All the deets:

“Celebrate the Holidays with the Grinch

Discover the magic of DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! The Musical, a production that has delighted thousands of families on Broadway and across the nation. Inspired by Dr. Seuss’ beloved story and featuring the hit songs “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas,” The Grinch discovers there’s more to Christmas than he bargained for in this heart-warming holiday classic. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the Whos, an endlessly cheerful bunch, bursting with holiday spirit. The Associated Press says, “This Grinch brings the Dr. Seuss classic fancifully to life – you might find your heart growing a few sizes, too,” and The New York Times says The Grinch Musical is “100 times better than any bedside story.

See?

That heavy-duty chain and tiny U-lock probably outweigh this wooden push-bike:

Does the kid wear the chain bandolier-style when s/he’s riding? That’d be sweet…
