That's Refreshing

I went out to grab lunch and mail a letter in the Financial District.  I held the door open for a lady at the post office and she thanked me.  I've noticed that most people I've encountered do not thank anyone else for open doors in SF, it's almost like they expect the door to be opened and express 0 appreciation.  Not only did this lady thank me, she turned around while I was getting ready to walk away and said, "Thank you so much, I really appreciate it."  Wow.

When I was walking back to the office two random guys (two blocks apart) smiled at me.  Also something I rarely see in SF.

That's refreshing!  San Francisco wants another shot?


  1. Yeah, people are like robots down in that part of town. It gets a better once I cross Broadway though. Maybe it's a creative vs. corporate thing.

  2. I don't know, I've never really encountered rudeness in the FiDi. I mean, people who work there don't necessarily live in SF. And there's the brogrammers in SOMA, but I've also not had an issue there either.
