White Whines on Muni

We enjoy a good White Whine here on Muni Diaries. We’re as guilty as anyone else: “Why is the internet out?!” “What is wrong with my Muni app!?” “This cheese is too cold!” We posted an analog White Whine on the 5-Fulton and giggled for days. I even made it on the White Whine site a few years ago — enter pride here — for complaining about my RSS feed vis-a-vis a European vacation.

We’re fortunate to be able to whine about tech toys and subpar service in restaurants. Because we relish any chance to poke fun at our privileged selves, we compiled our favorite Muni-related first-world problems as they’ve filtered into @munidiaries on Twitter. Here’s a few of our faves.

You’re on notice, Apple, Inc:

Thanks Muni. Going to miss my Apple genius bar appt now.

Struggling so hard to make it back to Pac Heights from SOMA on Muni. iPhone you’re failing me… And you NEVER FAIL ME.

You’ll get used to it. Sort of:

ugh why is my class tomorrow at 8:30 in FISHERMAN’S WHARF THAT IS SO FAR AWAY I’M ACTUALLY GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE THE MUNI

Probably my favorite. Well done:

Could really have used wifi on the muni this morning. Yes, I’m ready for the last refuge from email to be surrendered. #brainimplantsnow

Here’s to the be-MacBooked, and the be-smartphoned. May all our whines always be, er, white.

      That explains why you used the word ‘struggling,’ then.
