Impressions Of The First Week

  • Everyone can speak English here. Really.
  • Don’t tag the bus with paint, because there’s a chance you travel with 6 undercover cops and you get arrested—seen, not happened to me 🙂
  • Work at a company where the fridge contains so much food that it would be enough a whole town.
  • If you see any rule (for example “playing volleyball is not allowed on Crissy Field between 6pm and 5am”), it always refers directly to the authority who formulated it, and the exact paragraph you can find it.
  • A lot of people thanks the bus driver when they get off.
  • Hills are sticky, it’s unpleasent especially when you get lost.
  • You feel alone if only you and your supervisor have PC in the whole company (so much fruit here).
  • If a bus driver wants to go home in the middle of a pach, they are allowed to cancel your journey and go away (!!). Personal experience, verified by local residents.
  • If you live next to Chinatown you hear more Chinese than English on the street.
  • If you ask for a new card four times in the first week (because you left it in the hotel room), the receptionist will laugh at you.
  • Americans can make REAL hamburger (thanks, Christopher!)
