Bus announcement inspires Muni rider


I mean, us Muni riders’ motto should be, “Making the Most of a Bad Situation,” amirite? Muni rider Shaun is with me:

“When the Muni robot voice says ‘Please hold on,’ I always want finish it with, ‘Hold on for one more day!’

“Am I the only person who wants to sing Wilson Phillips while riding the bus?”

You’re not now, Shaun!
