San Francisco, as you know, is a unique and special flower. A city unlike any other where whimsical and unique things happen that would never occur anywhere else. Like Bay to Breakers. Or most of Stephanie Tanner's life lessons. Or a delightfully delusional man photographed at a hunky Jesus contest thrown by a cabal of altruistic drag nuns. Sure, those are all uniquely San Franciscan, but judging from the dumb stuff people say on twitter every day, some of you out there seem confused about what constitutes an "Only in SF" moment. Let's take a look:
Have to differ here. We know everyone is crapping their pants thinking about having their pre-flight Humphry Slocombe in SFO's new Terminal 2 or whatever, but have you ever flown through Charlotte, North Carolina? Not only do they have quite a nice little wine shop, but they also liberally sprinkled whitewashed wooden rocking chairs throughout the terminals so you get that whole "hangin' on a porch, waitin' for my connecting flight" vibe. Also, their barbecue sandwiches are better and half the people in San Francisco think barbecue means throwing a piece of chicken on a grill. Anyway: incorrect. Wine in airports is not #OnlyinSF, if you will.
Sure, that song is played only in San Francisco and about 9 different commercials for compact cars. Incorrect!
Pretty sure you should take that up with UPS and not an entire city of people who, for the most part, do not work at the United Parcel Service.
In LA they just call them "parrots".
Cool it, Phil! It's only baseball. People wear dumb shit. Like hats in general.
Actually, in the Midwest, where boredom among the youth is a very real epidemic the pot smell would probably be wafting off of the field. Haven't we all seen Dazed and Confused by now?
It's a rookie mistake, thinking our vagrants are unique. And while we do have some characters out there, "lady peeing in the street" is surprisingly common nationwide. Her and the guy who reportedly took too much LSD and now thinks he's a glass of orange juice - every town has that guy.
OK, yeah that one might be true, actually.
