S.F. Family of Drivers Think They're Entitled to Your Public Parking Spot

Posted By on Tue, Jul 29, 2014 at 8:24 AM

Parking, or the lack thereof, in San Francisco drives motorists to revert to their worst self  Just for fun, we've kept close tabs on all of the passive-aggressive, and plain aggressive, notes that've been slapped on car windshields from pissy drivers unable to find parking, most notably in the Bernal Heights neighborhood.

Now it appears the parking rage is trending down in the Mission District where one motorist recently received some very pointed notes from his neighbors who believe their parking needs are more important than anyone else's. Chris Cohen, a local motorcyclist, describes a recent baffling event where he legally parked his bike in a public spot only to find the above note taped to his gas tank upon his return.

Here's Cohen trying to make sense of it all:
After getting the note and trying to figure out what they're talking about, it appears they use one of their cars to block out an area that allows them to park out front after work maybe with one of their cars partly blocking their drive, but of course my bike fits right in there even though another car wouldn't. But how would I know that and why would I care? So essentially, I think I screwed up their little scheme they've probably been doing for who-knows-how long.
Our advice to the entitled family with multiple cars: rent a garage.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
