It really bugs me when people say “San Fran” instead of San Francisco. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about rhyming, but not when it comes to this. When people who aren’t from here say it, it bothers me because it’s like when someone who doesn’t even know you gives your kid a nickname. People just don’t do that. People who are from here will either say San Francisco or “The City.” If you’re from here, and you say “San Fran,” it’s like calling your friend by a name that you know she hates. Don’t say it. I have the same issue with “Frisco.” But let’s not go there.
