Boo: Muni Metro seat is totally horror-movie origin story

Oddly terrifying face/beginning of a horror movie appears burned into a Muni Metro seat. Sweet dreams!

Oh, I wouldn’t leave you hanging like that. While there have been some X-Files-worthy substances on Muni Metro seats — doesn’t matter if it’s black or white — let’s end on a positive. Like when it wishes you “a good-ass day” or gets really happy to see you.

“Fantastic” Muni voyage

Cute, cool, rad, awesome, bitchin’ … I could go on, but I’ll just step back and let Muni rider Beth take over:

Normally I don’t like loud music on the bus, or funk, but an old dude was blasting this today and singing along and saying “welcome aboard!” to new passengers and it was kind of perfect.

I take issue with Beth’s use of “kind of” here, but that’s just me being all literal and shit.

Have a great weekend, fellow Muni voyagers!
