What Do I Look Like? A Cream Puff?

So I was attempting (fruitlessly) to find the Pottery Barn near the 16th and Mission BART stop. I was dressed in jeans and a button down shirt–nothing out of the ordinary. I got off BART and was looking at the map to see which way I should go, when a SWAT team member asked if he could help. I explained I was looking for Pottery Barn on Market, at which point he looked me over and declared, “This isn’t such a nice part of town.”

Excuse me? Do I look like I just stepped off Fifth Avenue or something? (Although to be fair to the SWAT Team guy, I did go 6 blocks the wrong way and didn’t ever find the Pottery Barn. But that was partly his fault because he said Mission branched off Market. Of course, he might have had an easier time giving me directions if I hadn’t accidentally told him I was looking for a Crate and Barrel…)

    oh sweetie. let's recap. You, of the elegant and slightly victorian demeanor, were wearing a button down shirt. Openly reading a map. Looking for a pottery barn / c&b. IN THE MISSION. Not Union Sq, the marina, or even the Church/Castro cute area. THE MISSION. Sorry, going with SWAT on this one 🙂
