Another kick-start to the mornin'


San Francisco is such a fucked-up town. This morning, one of my co-workers was on her way into work, walking through the financial district in her very stylish outfit (seriously, this girl has style enough for any fourteen other people, and plenty left over). She got the heel of her shoe stuck in a grate and walked out of it -- a common enough occurrence in any city. She turns around to pick it up, but some homeless guy with blue hair grabs it and starts booking down the street. She's standing there like, "What the FUCK just happened here?" You can't really run with one stiletto on and a coffee in your hand, plus, seriously -- did a bitch just steal my SHOE? Luckily, there was a MUNI driver just ending his shift who saw the whole thing as he stepped off his bus -- he gave chase, caught the guy, and wrestled the shoe back from him a block and a half away, with no lasting harm done.
I gotta wonder if this sort of thing happens in, like, Minneapolis or San Antonio -- and I'm thinkin, probably not. Probably not.
[PS: No, that's not me or anyone I know in that photo, starring the famous Bushman of Fisherman's Wharf.]

Ha! Wow, the Internets (a series of tubes) sure do bring people together ... hope you don't mind my using the pic (got it from Google image search, like all the photos here) -- I'll certainly remove it right away if you want. Cute photo, though!

i wonder how long that dude had to wait for that to happen. because to act that fast, you'd think he had been waiting for specifically that sort of thing to occur. very strange. i wonder what the hell he thought he would do with it. oh wait - nevermind.

Yes, some possibilities are ... better left unexamined. ;-)
