It’s Come To This: Privatized School Buses – KIDZJET – As Seen Double Parking on Fell Street

Friday, February 26th, 2016

You’d think a transportation company called kidsJET would use actual jets, but here’s what the fleet looks like:

$280 per month per kid? Oh. Uber or Lyft or Shuddle might be cheaper, non?

I have notes.

Welcome to San Francisco. So like you can’t double-park on Fell Street in the Western Addition, right? I mean, it’s like our substitute Freeway To The West, right? What you can do is go around the block. Sorry.

Also, one of the reasons why CBS made this…

60 Minutes II 15-Passenger Van rollover report

…is due to some vans having too much rear overhang.. Your comic here shows the half-assed Chrysler / Ford approach that increased rollover risk.

I don’t think you can market safety with this style of van. Sorry. If anybody is still operating this kind of van, they should take out the last row and not put anything else there – just leave it empty is what I’m saying…

Anyway, I’ve never seen this company before.

The Most Double-Parking on One Block I’ve Seen in the Western Addition – San Francisco Day School – A Parade of Luxury Cars

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

And when I say one block, sometimes this line of idling Lexus LX570’s, Toyota Land Bruisers, Mercedes Benzes, Audi wagons, Toyota Priuses, Tesla Model S’es, and all matter of Porsches! Porsches! Porsches! goes down Golden Gate Ave (not far from where Patty Hearst was held in a closet), up Central, and then starts snaking back along Turk:

Oh well:

For our appointed Mayor to go on and on about how double parkers slow his chauffeured trips about town, well, what’s his fix for this? His zero tolerance policy doesn’t appear to acknowledge daily reality, oh well.

IMO, narrow Central “Avenue” really isn’t an avenue, so this wagon train of nannies and parents would be better off simply staying on Golden Gate stretching to the horizon.

Isn’t SDS SFDS the richest school in the Western Addition with tuition for kinders costing like $30k+ per year? I think so.

Seems it could try harder…

This is heavy lift – garnering 4.5 Yelp stars at a bakery in the somewhat dreary, windswept Western Addition.

IDK, man.

I don’t think NoPA is so special.

Sorry.

Hey look, your precious Northeast of Panhandle Area is actually in the Western Addition – here’s a map from just part of part of the WA:

Sorry.

And don’t ever search your house’s property records for the term “Western Addition,” ’cause you’ll be disappointed to find that term in there, over and over.

Sorry.

But no no, area millionaire homeowners association – please go on and on about your petty concerns. Tell EVERYBODY.

Yay!

The Towman Cometh: The Great Towing of the Western Addition Starts This Saturday Night – Thanks, NIKE!

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

IMO, Nike should make sure that these types of signs hit the streets like six days before the annual Nike Womens 13.1-Mile Marketing Effort

(Interesting font there, SFMTA!)

The way things stand now, notice is insufficient.

IMO.

(The person who will tow your ride Sunday morning will live south of SF, and have bible verses cited on the side of his tow truck, if Past Is Prologue.)

Useless Octavia Street Turned Into Free Parking for People Living in the Projects

They called it “Redevelopment.”

It failed:

The Horrible Pedestrians of San Francisco, Airbnb Edition, Western Addition

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Here’s an interesting contrast. The local is jaywalking on the far side of the intersection, and he’s made it most of the way across, and plus he’s running.

Compare that with the Airbnb-type tourists, who, in this case, were on the near side of the intersection, and had not made it most of the way across when their light turned red and, of course, were not running:

Oh well.
