Open letter to the people in charge of the billboards in San Francisco

1 Comment

Dear Whomever Is in Charge of the Billboards in San Francisco:

Why do you hate America? Clearly, you hate America. Why else would you leave up that billboard for “The Bounty Hunter” for four months? Isn’t there a shitty “Twilight” movie you should be promoting? Or maybe soda that claims to make you thin but will really give you cancer?

Please! I am so tired of looking at the vacant faces of Jennifer Aniston and Gerald Butler every day. It makes me long for the billboard that reminds me that there are women out there with serious daddy issues.

I work in my cube 8 hours a day, five days a week, and when I get off the Bay Bridge to go home I am forced to look at this:

“Let the ex-games begin.” They are exes. Get it?

Come on! That’s just cruel. I am a good person. I don’t deserve this. I deserve new billboards rotated in timely fashion. I shouldn’t have to be reminded of that bomb every day for four months. It’s a constant reminder that Hollywood has given up on trying to make anything original or, well, good. “Please Hollywood, can I have another ‘Transformers’ movie?”

Wait a second … Are you punishing commuters? Is this your way of trying to get us out of our cars and onto public transportation? That’s a noble plan, but it’s not going to work. A billboard for a crappy “Romancing the Stone” ripoff isn’t going to do it. And, don’t even think about putting up a billboard for “Big Momma’s House 3” along my route home. Consider yourself warned.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
