Reader complaint: tacky and disrespectful (our mag & your city)

December 18, 2011

We love our readers. Sometimes we especially love the ones who don’t seem to care for us so much. Case in point: last week’s disgruntled former San Franciscite who called in to express her disappointment with Chuck Kerr’s presentation of District Attorney Susan Reed as a blood-sucking vampire (no comment on Mr. Barajas’ treatment of topic in his story, interestingly).

At least that seemed to be her complaint… until she got going.

“I think the magazine’s tacky overall, but to disrespect the law on top of your tackiness is, like, really distasteful. I think it just encourages the city to just continue in it’s pit of darkness. It’s a gross city to begin with.”

Can she really blame us for our occasional foray into irreverence when we share in this grand cesspool of a town where “there’s nothing deep.”

I considered returning her call, but when it became clear her dissatisfaction was with the entire city of San Antonio I decided perhaps I wasn’t the best ambassador for the job. What is the best response to a snotty West Coaster, anyway? A bus ticket and a packet of hygienic wipes?

Listen in below…

    Like San Francisco isn’t the epitomy of a gross city!!! Chock full of trannies!!! Isn’t that the city where the disease AIDs came from in the US?? Go back to San Fran then Beyotch and get the hay out of SA!!!

    It’s not like this woman sounds intelligent to begin with. Not that there aren’t small minded people here in SA, but if you are going to criticize an entire city, you better be a lot more articulate and intelligent than this woman who sounds just like a spoiled little teenage snob when she talks.

    If she dislikes our city so much why don’t she go back to San Francisco where she belongs.  I grew up in Ohio, but see San Antonio as my home.  I love everything about this city.   On another note I disagree with the report on no refusal, because we do have a high number of drunk drivers out there.  I know they have rights, but so do the rest us have a right to live.

    it’s sad when people rely on ignorance and a few bad things to make a judgment on an entire town.

  • MARIO)))

    What the law?

  • Raggedy Anne

    It’s simple: don’t like it, don’t read it. I love that The Current is exercising its constitutional rights of free speech on a story about constitutional rights. Keep up the stellar work, Current staffers! San Antonians appreciate you … Muah!

    a) There is nothing wrong with transgendered or transexual people.
    b) HIV/AIDS originated in Africa.

  • MmmHmm…

    It seems to me that by calling her a “snotty west coaster” instead of an intelligent rebuttal, newsmonger is just as guilty of the same type of stupidity. I’m from sa, i love sa but what is with the chip on its shoulder?

  • Kewldenise19

    She is hella trashed!!! Umm uhhh… Go back to San Fran freak!
    Yours truly,
    Lawless in San Anto

    The funny thing is that it’s no secret Susan enjoys her booze (ahem, a lot) and that tax payer money goes to pay for her personal driver. Party on Susan!

    I’ll take San Antonio,”The Pit of Darkness”, any fucking day!  That’s the raddest name EVAR!!!

  • Urians

    I thought Rackspace employees (or wives/partners) were supposed to be intelligent, ummm, cloud, ummm, enlightened, ummm, i miss food & wine, ummm, california, ummm, baja mexican food is better, ummm.
    As this inept person gets the right to say what she wants as does the current.  However, this ‘educated’ person thinks that her opinion is the only correct viewpoint.

  • guest

    Actually, it isn’t the epitome of a gross city.  Just like this poor sot of an idiot is blaming San Antonio for goodness only knows what, it does not do you any good to do the same to San Francisco. 

  • Dillholio

    I could not agree more with that caller! San Antonio needs to take San Francisco’s lead and cut down on the booze, and have more heroin and BART-style police actions on its citizenry. Only then will we move forward!

  • Bigadamsoy

    Her accent doesn’t sound San Franciscan. It sounds more Dallas to me.
