Monitoring empty shelves. Sky blue string as far as the eye can see. Overheard snippets of (apparently each) conversation curiously mixed with software jargon.
Dreamforce, in its 19th year, has come to San Francisco again, with hordes of technical coals, evergreen plastic plants and faux park rangers flooding the Moscone Center and the area around Salesforce's four-day annual conference.
It turns out that the place "where the future takes center stage" is a complete nightmare for the residents of the city. Who would have thought, right?

While some showed up personally on Tuesday to witch Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff for the company's contract with US Customs and Border Protection, others took to Twitter to release complaints about SoMa's temporary takeover of so-called trailblazers.
"Dreamforce should be a week-long vacation for anyone working in SOMA," wrote a dissatisfied man.
Another person pointed out to the conference attendees a lack of knowledgeable pedestrians: "All I know about dreamforce is that none of the attendants have ever walked on a sidewalk throughout their adult lives."
And some suggested that the conference be moved completely to another city. "I would vote for Dreamforce to move to South Bay," one woman suggested.
The conference concludes November 22, but don't worry – the Shen Yun season is right around the corner.  Click through the gallery to see some of Twitter's ridiculous reactions to Dreamforce.
