Baseball fans at the San Francisco Giants’ opening day on Friday received a free calendar for the upcoming season featuring the team’s Oracle Park stadium and the San Francisco skyline on the cover. 

But as some people noticed, the calendar’s photo of the city skyline was missing a prominent feature: Salesforce Tower.

Salesforce Tower, located in downtown San Francisco, is San Francisco’s tallest building, and it was completed just last year. It’s the headquarters for $121 billion cloud-based software company Salesforce.

Salesforce, of course, is a fierce competitor with Oracle, the enterprise tech giant that has bought the naming rights to the Giants’ stadium.

Salesforce co-founder and co-CEO Marc Benioff responded to the tweet, saying “Someone has Tower envy.” This tweet has since been deleted. However, he still retweeted the original tweet about the calendar.

Salesforce and Oracle did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the Freudian incident.
