Look at the Efforts We Go To So That EVERYBODY CAN HAVE A CORNER OFFICE – Donald Trump’s “Triple Nickel,” Sort Of

Monday, August 15th, 2016

Our BofA Building, the largest in Frisco, is known by one and all as “Triple Five Cal” AFAIK, but there was an effort to start calling it the Triple Nickel not too long ago. Oh, and Donald Trump owns a piece of it, so that explains the “sort of.”

Anyway, the whole sawtoothed design on the exterior was so that every windowed office was a corner office. See?

(Afore the Carnelian Room went out of biz I sat for dinner in one of these corners on the second highest floor – San Francisco Magazine (the actual physical magazine) had a coupon (made of cardboard, an insert) inside what said “Complete Dinner For Two” for just $49.95. “Score,” I said. 180 degrees of window, man. Ah memories. I suppose I had the same view as all the office workers. Impressive, sure. The view, that is.)

But how do you clean the windows – like this, with a giant telescoping arm what needs to jut out more and more as the workers descend?

Wow, a little scary…

Multitasking: Commemorating the 4th of July and Your Busted Car Windows at the Same Time

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Don’t look at reported incidents, just look at real life.

Anyway, the silvery piece of cardboard looked white, so this driver was in the spirit of July 4th 2016:

Some are just giving up fixing their windows, it seems, in this year especially. Most passersby will not try to get into your car of course, and the ones who do just might have done it anyway, so what’s the point in hurrying up and repairing the damage today, or this week, or this year?

Cf. this long-term fix. See? Much less festive, but actually a pretty good job:

Tourists are Welcomed to Golden Gate Park: “LOCK ALL VEHICLES”

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

One assumes that the average jay visiting the “world-class” city of San Francisco already knows to lock the doors of his/her ride when parking in GGP, right?

So what is this sign really saying? Is it saying, “Don’t blame us if somebody breaks into your locked car and takes the stuff that’s in plain view?”

I think so…

North, south, east, and west – the windows facing all directions had these big BART logos affixed:

All the windows – so it’s like, oh, I’m going to park on the yellow brown brick road of Market, so time to start taping posters up?
