Things You’ll Never Hear San Franciscans Say

I was so impressed by Time Out Chicago’s list of 51 things you’ll never hear a Chicagoan say, I decided to make my own list for SF. There isn’t that much San Franciscans won’t say. Still, here’s a list of some of the stuff I doubt you’ve heard.
I love having a car.
Do you want to go to Alcatraz this weekend?
I never see any poop on the ground.
Look at all these parking spots!
Fernet? Meh.
Sometimes I think my apartment is TOO big.
I don’t have a costume to wear.
San Francisco is so much like New York.
I just get such good vibes from the Marina.
My rent is totally reasonable.
I’m sure the bus is late for a good reason. I’m happy to wait.

I don’t care if you call it Frisco or San Fran, it’s all good.

What’s that new building? Must be more affordable housing.
You’d think this toast would cost more.
A cleanse? I’ve never tried one.
I have absolutely no dietary restrictions.
I don’t have any ideas for a start-up.
I’ll never have an opportunity to use these roller skates.
I don’t care what typeface we use.
I always run Bay to Breakers sober.
I could totally afford this place on my own.
I can’t wait for JULY!
The Mission is so much better than it was a few years ago.
Gluten free? What’s that?
The view of the Golden Gate Bridge just gets old after a while.
Let’s go to Union Square tonight.
Move to San Francisco. There’s room for everyone.
I don’t like brunch.
LA seems like a really nice place to live.
BART will take us right there!
My Lyft driver was so normal today.
God, this bus smells amazing.
Tell me all about the app you’re working on!

Home Decor – Orange Accents

Orange is a color that doesn’t get much love when it comes to home decor. Some say it’s too bright, too loud. However, orange can add a welcoming splash of color, if used in the right ways.
