“hate” is a damaging word

so….there is someone that hates san francisco afterall!!?!

i was having breakfast this morning, browsing through facebook, the news while sipping my big mug of coffee when i came across a post from huffing post calling an article “Peter Shish ’10 I Hate About You’ Post Draws San Francisco’s Ire, Confirms Startup Stereotypes“.
curious to find out what it was all about i clicked it open to read what it seems to be a great mess created by mr. celery.

ok let’s go one step at a time.

first of all i can’t help but laugh about this story. and i’ll explain why…

if you are reading this post/blog you might have understood that we know we, the senises, are moving to san francisco. it was love “virtually” at first sight. the desire of some “fresh air” to the mind. many researches and studing i’ve been doing, and after a few months, since my decison, one thing i can say is that i never read or heard the “hate” word about san francisco. period. not even on a sarcastic way (impression mr. celery tried to use to excuse /explain himself after the fatidic post on Medium).

all i read, hear and feel about my virtual experience with san francisco has only been positive. the articles, posts, people i spoke about san francisco, people i speak in san francisco. it’s, again my feelings, all about generosity, positiviness, helpfulness and most of all, at ease attitude.

so when i read the article about Peter Shih’s, let’s call gaffe, i thought “oh well, at least someone doesn’t like san francisco. but hey…you loner one, you seem to have hit a delicate spot there.”
i googled the guy’s name and the amout of results i got, besides his fame for creating a successful start up, in a city he “hates” and becoming a multi milionare thanks to it, was just hilarious! all the twitters have gone mad, fliers around the city invinting him to go back to new york city, a rebuttal post from Medium trying to pacify the whole situation, many bloggers expressing their opinion, sfgate.com news have crossed the ocean and gone to uk ( guardian / dailymail )…just to name a few hits….

considering my position with this blog, my virtual (soon to become real…) love with san francisco i can’t not join the san francisco residents and lovers in this matter!!

sorry mr. celery but you won’t gain any way of empathy from my side. but thanks for all the laughs with you big gaffe.

(fan note to “the bold italic” writer Jennifer Maerz: you have a very good point!!)
