Right outside of the Mission Local office, one commuter bus struggled to turn north onto Mission from 22nd Street, at about 6:40 Wednesday night.
Parked San Francisco Fire Department trucks were in the way.
It was a short battle, with the commuter bus making a several point turn, backing up a few times in the middle of the intersection and blocking traffic, to get around the SFFD truck.
The fire truck did not make an attempt to move.
“No, I’m bigger than them. I make them move,” said the fire truck driver with a smirk a few minutes later.
Minutes after the commuter bus cleared, a bus with an eBay placard in the window drove by unobstructed.
The firefighters had responded to Wells Fargo’s call about a smoke smell in the building. They said they couldn’t find a source for the stench. One banker told Mission Local the firefighters decided it may have been a light.
