Street Smarts

Posted on November 23, 2010 in Arizona Law Regarding Business and Real Estate

My dad, a University professor, taught me how to be street smart. I think he knew the futility of arrogance and he wanted me to not think too highly of myself.

Little typifies street smarts better than an experience I often have.

My favorite pizza joint in Phoenix is the Red Devil. It has been in the same location for 60 years. Do not ask for pesto or goat cheese or you will get booted. It is next door to a biker bar and a strip club is right across the street. It’s amazing how many kids ride their bikes on that busy street. They always coast behind me when I am sitting at the stop sign. They instinctively do not trust me to yield for them. They are street smart.

On the other side of town, in Scottsdale, is my second favorite pizza place. It’s new, organic, has roasted vegetables and no pepperoni. It serves $9 dollar beers. No kids are ever riding their bikes around there, but there is no shortage of guys my age in tight shorts and helmets riding around on $2,000.00 dollar bikes. When sitting at that stop sign, I always get an arrogant glance and a quick dart right in front of my car by the old guy biker-types. That is arrogance.
