Busy hipsters have epic to-do lists

Somebody left this in reader Chad V’s bar last night:

Says Chad:

We all shit ourselves at the “plan chest piece” entry.

No doubt. Thanks, Chad!

    Steal sisters skinny jeans, buy Blue Oyster Cult shirt on EBay for $200, get new sunglasses from Thrift Town, avoid the shower.

  2. Stu says:

    Call Dad (for money)

  3. that list says:

    Man this is San Francisco. This list will remain the same for the next 5 to 10 years of this guys life. But, I bet he’ll get the drum sticks.

  4. Great – an OCD drummer! Bet he really swings.

    The idea that hipsters call their parents for money is wrong. They usually have a credit card just like everyone else, however the bill goes to their parents address, and they can use the card “when they need”. This can be used for shopping or dinner on Valencia St, paying the cell phone bill, the necessities. Parents will only nag them about the card when it exceeds a certain amount or when they turn 32.

    I have a feeling this dude will be avoiding Rachel’s texts at least until his chest piece is done.

    The driving test is only $35? Rad.

    For those wondering about “chest piece” – an answer in photos here: http://bit.ly/eHLXuj

    If anything deserves a bit of planning it’s a chest piece!

  9. Erik says:

    It’s not clear if “pay rachel back” involves a loan or some kind of revenge.

  10. Corpus Nerd says:

    I’m still scratching my head over “Buy Ankle Weights.”

  11. GG says:

    C’mon, the guy’s *gotta* have new jeans, Vans, and shirt if he’s going to ace the interview for that bar/cafe job.

  12. id says:

    any theories on EED 4/4?

  13. yesssss says:

    Why does everybody assume it’s a dude?

  14. chadwick says:

    Had a meeting …. its not a guy

  15. Roth says:

    Pay Rachel back…I am still waiting.

    • Rachel says:

      I”m still waiting too. It’s been about 4 weeks and I’m about to send my douchebags after this person. They are usually drunk or stoned, so collection could be hilarious or slow as fuck.

  16. ASS DISASTER says:

    I do not understand why most of you think this list is a big deal. He/she plays the drums and rides a bicycle/motorcycle. He/she sounds awesome!

    • It’s an insanely long list for most of us, that’s why.

    • Sweet T says:

      Ass Disaster… did you make this list?

      Did you?

      Did you?

    • VirtualKatie says:

      Because it’s a boring petty to-do list. I wish my to-do list was that simple and involved such easy tasks. To me this looks like “buy some toys, color, eat a cupcake, jump rope, buy more toys.” Also there was “finish resume” like it was too hard to write in one sitting, and no “spend all day sending people my resume and following up, and interning and volunteering so I can get my foot in the door to contribute to society and pull my own weight” Just “finish resume” followed buy a bunch of “buy new toys, buy new toys, buy new toys.”

      • Stop hatin says:

        Oh please. Unless you’re a combat medic, an ED surgeon or some kind of green engineer, you’re probably not doing anything much nobler. That PR or corporate event planning job is contributing even less to society than this hipster’s band. Hell, if you’re in finance, you’re probably making society even WORSE.

        As an office drone, I attest that most people I meet & deal with on a daily basis are infinitely more boring than this kid, especially the hyper-strivers. Would rather hear about a chest piece and a motorcycle than another goddamn ad campaign any day of the week.

        Point being, this hipster is not special and neither and you. But only one of you comes off as a judgmental, self-important asshole. (Tho I take this back if you do one of the jobs in the first sentence. In that case, I am the judgmental, self-important asshole. Willing to risk it, tho.)

    I’m never getting my frakking money back, am I?

  18. SCUM says:

    Nice Battlestar Galactica reference Frak is a fictional version of “fuck,” “shit” or “damn” first used (with the spelling “frack”) in the original Battlestar Galactica series. It continues to be used throughout different versions of the franchise as an expletive.

    If there ever was a future Donald Trump…

  20. James says:

    I understand his need to practice “Space Rent.” As a rendition of the broadway spectacular that takes place in the andromeda galaxy, the zero-gravity recreation is quite taxing on one’s thespian training.

  21. snackpacket says:

    Man, I’m just glad the internet wasn’t around when I was a 22 year-old slacker making lists in a coffeeshop on Valencia.

  22. andrew says:

    fucking chads

  23. Jenky says:

    More evidence hipsters are only smug because they’re poor and miserable.

  24. ciao says:

    wait, this is a long list? Most of my lists run two pages.

  25. EffEcks says:

    Nothing really screams hipster on this list to me. Plays the drums and rides a bike? Really? Hipster?

  26. The most epic to-do list I ever found was left by a young boy at his sister’s dance studio. It read:

    “Learn how to make: (1) Robots. (2) World War 3. (3) Fractions.”

    That’s a kid who knows what his plans are.

  27. Baron Von Hog says:

    I know this guy…his mom owner-move-in evicted us so we had to move to the East Bay.

  28. Eustace says:

    The only thing funnier is the snide laughter of the anti-hipster hipsters.

  29. jeff says:

    maybe this list is his resume? was he hired?

  30. noone says:

    “get new debit card” “call customer service for deb…” my personal favorite “file taxes”… love how much money this asshole spends.

  31. Chris says:

    This guy is learning to ride a motorcycle, playing drums with a band, getting a chest piece AND a passport while borrowing money from girls.

    Meanwhile, I work in a cube farm all day like a sucker!

  32. judy says:

    above comments SO FUNNY!!! (not sure how to spell hilarious?) I was just laughing out loud for 10 minutes….

  33. maya says:

    the ‘plan chest piece’ item on the list probably refers to a piece that needs replacing on a plan chest – ie, an architects plan chest used for storing large pieces of paper. JEEZUZ.

  34. Warren says:

    Finish resume, file taxes and pay Rachel back belongs on a TO DO list, most of the rest could be a – when the inspiration or necessity hits me – list
    Passport could fall into either catagory but since a plane ticket is not on his list I’m guessing he’s not going anywhere soon, at least not before he pays Rachel back!
    Lists – gotta love em, one action that creates an even greater and opposite reaction

  35. RACHEL says:

    nobody ever pays me back. fuckers

  36. CiudadDeRad says:

    Perfecto listo

  37. Lala says:

    None of this is ever gonna get done anyway, since he doesn’t have the list.
