A lot of people in SF get credit for being awesome (the people who organized Batkid, the Giants, Mayor Lee, Mayor Lee's mustache...), but there are still plenty of everyday heroes who do their day-to-day awesome without fanfare. Until now. Here are SF's 12 unsung heroes:
1. The person who left 30mins in the parking meter
You knew dropping off your dry-cleaning on Polk was going to take less time than 35mins, but you put those 35 quarters in anyway (it's a quarter a minute now, right?), and because of it, have let us keep our precious, precious George Washington coin-age for the next time we're trying to park anywhere that isn't the Outer Richmond.
2. The guy who doesn't decide to cross a Union Square crosswalk with only 2 seconds left on the blinking hand
You sir, are a true paragon among men. Not only are you subjecting yourself to Union Square for more time than any San Franciscan should legally be subjected to, but your time being jostled/trapped/harassed/asked-directions(-even-though-they-clearly-have-smartphones) by tourists hasn't depleted your generosity to your fellow man, specifically the one in the car who is trying not to accidentally run anyone over.
