Smart car tipping is San Francisco’s version of cow tipping and it’s oddly funny
San Francisco residents are in a panic. Someone is screwing with their Smart Cars.
Let’s go semi-live to NBC Bay Area for the story.
NBC Bay Area found four of the targeted Smart cars between Sunday night and Monday morning. Two were found in the Bernal Heights neighborhood on Anderson Street, and another was found a bit south on Sweeny and Bowdoin streets, closer to the Portola district. They were either sitting on their headlights, rear bumpers high in the air, or vice versa.
It’s like cow tipping except cows probably weigh more. Alright, it’s not funny to get your car damaged, but it’s hard to not laugh at a Smart car on it’s side. Imagine it trying to flip over on it’s own, like a stranded turtle or Rick Ross trying to get up off the floor.
“Whoever is doing this just has misdirected anger,” Gallivan said.
Oh, I think it’s very directed. It’s very directed at the bumper of a Smart car. It takes a certain dedication to go around flipping cars.
Remember San Fran area residents — if you see something, say something. First laugh, then say something.
