Just another day in L.A.

So, I’m driving down the street earlier, and as I’m stopped at the light I see a homeless dude sitting in a grocery cart. Yes. Sitting in a fuckin grocery cart. Now my first question is:

I know it’s hot, but is it necessary to be a grown ass man sitting in grocery cart ?

Then, I noticed where the cart is. The street is on a downhill slope, which brings me to my next question:

How come this fool ain’t rolled down into traffic yet ? Does he have brakes on this bitch ?

Just as I was about to pull out my phone and get some video of this shit, he springs out of the cart like a jungle cat and proceeds to sashay his ass across the street. Yes. I said sashay. Dressed like an extra from Pirates Of The Caribbean. He walked right out into traffic with no regard to what was going on around him, and walked between me and the car behind me. I looked back and dude had vanished into thin air. I’m convinced it was some sort of homeless gay pirate ghost. But from now on, I’m driving with my phone on my lap for moments like this.

    i had it in my pocket, but by the time it all went down, i couldn’t get to it. the whole scene played out in about 27 seconds, tops. i’m gonna go back and take a picture of the location.

    You know what Miguel, I think this is a West Coast thing. When I lived on the East Coast, we had NORMAL homeless people!!

    I saw a homeless guy on a skate board out here last week!
