Camaraderie among Muni passengers really brings out some of the most surprising moments of kindness. Muni rider Zann sent us this “Only on Muni” story via Facebook.
This was on an inbound 24, as we crossed over Cortland:
This young guy gets on the 24, totally reeking of pot. He sits and opens his hand and has a handful of loose buds and shake. He pulls out a dollar and tries to wrap the weed in it, when this old lady next to him says, “Honey, you’re gonna spill that all over. Take this.” She pulls a handkerchief out of her purse and holds it open for him while he dumps the handful into it, then folds it up nicely and hands it to him. He offers her a piece as a thank you, and she refuses it. “No thanks, Honey, I don’t touch the stuff.”
It really was a magical “only in SF” moment, and a totally unashamed and candid interaction between them.
I always knew there was a reason I love people who carry handkerchiefs!

If this photo doesn’t make you happy, then I’m at a complete loss! Via Muni rider Roger who tweeted us this cheery photo of his Muni driver on the 39-Coit. What an amazing smile!

We’ll forgive the Crocs, kid.

Can you feel it? Can you smell it? It smells like garlic fries and kettle corn. It is a Giants playoff game, today at 1 p.m.
And don’t you just lurv this guy?
I understand fatigue and everything. But I have to wonder whether, even for insects, walking would be faster than taking Muni.

Combining two of the most San Francisco things in one cake, Alison at Pretty Please Bakeshop in the Richmond whipped up this amazing Muni bus wedding cake with a big Giants ad on its side! The cake was for Lisa and her husband Mark, who met on a 1-BX Muni bus they both use to take to and from work.
Lisa told us the story of how they met. If this doesn’t encourage you to make more bus friends, I don’t know what will! (more…)
