I think a SMART car would have been acceptable.

He can’t do that in the Castro district. You’re supposed to use the rear entrance.

Hardware store in Castro?

3-in-1, lithium grease, ball-joint grease, miscellaneous lubricants, plungers, pipe cleaners, straps, chains, tie-downs, clamps, bastard files, ...

This happens 200x per day in America...

Mostly by medicated 80+ years olds suffering from dementia.

The states DMV’s won’t deny anyone at this point...It’s all about money...

Paramedics originally thought several bystanders had suffered broken arms, until they realized it was just limp wrists.

Utility crewmen though a gas pipe had ruptured, until they realized it was just all the lisping going on.

Thank you...I'm here all week. Tip your waitresses and bartenders.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

Looking at the window display in front of the car - that’s a hardware store?

Looking at their website, it’s a pretty eclectic offering of products. But given the location, probably a big success.

One can only imagine what is sold at a “hardware store” on CASTRO STREET.
