49 Signs You're an SF Douchebag
San Francisco has almost 850,000 people living in a space that's only seven miles by seven miles. And, sadly, it's just a fact that way too many of those people do something douchey on a fairly regular basis. And sure, we're not douchey in the same way New Yorkers are -- we don't steal cabs (usually), catcall women on the street (often), or think we're better than everyone else (rather, we just know it to be true) -- but SF still has its own special brand of douche.
Are you part of it? Depends on how many of these 49 items you check off...
1. You're Mark Zuckerberg

4. You eat all of your meals at your tech company's cafeteria
5. You're Peter Shih
6. You're a landlord who's evicted someone under the Ellis Act
7. You reach the front of whatever terrible line you're waiting in and don't put down your phone
8. You don’t offer your seat to the old/disabled/pregnant person on the bus
