Rich SF residents get a shock: Someone bought their street

something to put a little pep in your step

Tldr: rich ppl allowed to be jerks to other rich ppl bc some rich ppl didn’t want to pay $14 tax bill

Which is kinda fun because usually only poor people get fucked over like this.

No guys that tl;dr misses the best part: why they are able to do this. 

They are able to do this because this is a private street. They are able to do this because of the ORIGINAL JACKASSERY of previous rich people who wanted to be able to literally bar all people Not Cool Enough from even being on their street (something you cannot do if it’s a public street). 

ALSO THE SECOND BEST PART: 

There’s a bit of irony in the couple’s purchase. Until a 1948 U.S. Supreme Court ruling banning the enforcement of racial covenants, homes in Presidio Terrace could be purchased only by whites.

“The more we dug into this,” said the Taiwan-born Cheng, “the more interesting it got.”
