Greg Hum looked out his window this afternoon to see two people walking across the Charles.
The Globe updates us on efforts to get handicap ramps and bumpy warning strips installed in the toniest of Boston's neighborhoods:
[T]he plan was rejected in December by officials of the Beacon Hill Architectural Commission, who complained about the materials proposed and said the bumpy plastic strips would mar the neighborhoodâ€™s Colonial-era character.
Yes, they would seriously detract from the hundreds of colonial automobiles... Read more
Interesting photo that shows what happens when a vengeful neighbor slashes your tires for daring to park in "their" space and then the local meter maid decides to issue you a steady stream of tickets. Brought to you by the neighborhood of East Boston.
A roving UHub photographer came across this protest against the way somebody claimed a parking space on Monmouth Street, Eagle Hill, without spending a lick of time actually shoveling it out today.
An annoyed citizen complains about somebody on Mohawk Street off Preble in Andrew Square early this afternoon:
Man saved FOUR parking spots before show even falls.
A fed-up citizen complains about a local DJ who keeps putting up his stupid stickers on light poles across the city, no matter how many of them this fair citizen of the Hub keeps ripping down:

UPDATE: See the comments - that could be a Brooklyn Dodgers cap, not a Red Sox one.
Amy Derjue was not thinking nice thoughts about the driver in front of her on Newport Avenue in Quincy this morning.
Patrick Maguire gets fed up with Yelp after reading somebody gave the Lincoln Tavern in South Boston just one star, not because of the food, but because they gave her a pizza to go in a generic box:

Seems she didn't buy their story they were in her building to clean an apartment. Wicked Local Brookline reports the three women, who fled after the resident told them she was calling 911, were, in fact, there to clean an apartment.
JF spotted a passive-aggressive note on a bicycle on Beacon Hill this morning. A passive-aggressive note written on a typewriter. A typewriter!
Jed Hresko forwards this photo of some extreme passive aggressiveness: Somebody peeved at a cardboard box in an alley off Columbus Avenue in the South End spent some serious time explaining how to properly recycle the box - by writing down the directions on two sides of the box itself, because, naturally, whoever put the box out there will come out frequently to admire his...

And is slapped down by Anthony Weiner. Yes, that Anthony Weiner.
A fuming citizen spokes up about the situation on High Street downtown:
How is it that a legally operating cyclist gets followed and screamed at for riding through a GREEN light? Because the shamlbling hoards [sic] of dumbphone addled zombies at this intersection don't understand that merely shambling into the intersection without looking first does not give them automatic right of way and license...

Mike the Mad Biologist reports that a resident of the Beacon Hill street got so fed up with bags of dog shit being left all along the street that he or she put out a trash can in the hopes that dog owners would use it - and city trash collectors would empty it. Naturally, this being Beacon Hill, somebody else promptly put a... Read more
