Funny: Muni LOLs

With a little help from my friends on Muni


Sometimes taking the bus is just a good reality check that even strangers have your back. Here are a couple of people bringing the real world to you on Muni:

  • Super nice guy on #SFMuni pointed out MAC pop up shop as we passed cuz he noticed I was putting on MAC makeup. What a doll
  • Guy leaning into the 71: “Everyone on this bus needs to quit their job and freak out.” O.o
  • All it takes is one #SFMuni ride to raise your level of compassion or to erase it completely.
  • OH on #SFMuni: an older woman asking people, “can you give me some advice? What should I do for the rest of my life?”

This week’s Things on Muni is brought to you by @katlovee, @NgLouiseSF, @BarbeauMark, and @rachelalonso. Follow and tag  Muni Diaries on Twitter to see your own tweet featured on the site every Friday.

I can’t believe it’s not Fabio on Muni


I wonder who the No. 1 most commonly mistaken celebrity in the world is. Just yesterday at lunch, I was positive that The Jinx‘s Robert Durst was a few seats down from me at the bar. No, it wasn’t him. And yes, I finished my lunch.

Muni rider and friend of Muni Diaries Stephanie sent us the photo above. Methinks this is actually Fabio himself, not a doppelganger. And I am right about this.

What Muni and BART drivers really wanna say

Ever wonder what’s going on in the minds of the men and women at the controls of our public transit on a daily basis? Well, wonder no more.

The Atlantic’s Citylab brings us Above Average’s look behind the curtains, as it were. Pay extra special attention around 1:06.

Surely, one of the other cities they’re talking about cannot possibly be San Francisco? Okay, okay. And sorry that I called you Shirley.

Speaking of transit operators, don’t miss the very first Muni driver we’ve ever had on stage, Driver Doug, at Muni Diaries Live this Saturday at the Elbo Room. Getcher tickets here today!

‘Only on Muni’ head-scratchers


Sure, there’s a lot of weird shit you see on Muni every day. But in a separate class all by themselves are the one-offs, the things you might experience only once, but things that will leave you scratching your head and saying (out loud or to yourself), “Only on Muni, man.” Indeed.

  • these senior citizens on Muni look like they’re about to punch each other. “Why don’t you shut up,” said the bearded one
  • I don’t even know where I’m going. I got on muni and I don’t wanna get off because I’m lazy to get up.
  • On #SFMuni this morning I witnessed a really intense selfie photo-shoot…
  • This 70+ year-old guy just walked on MUNI with a huge boner tent. Good for him.
  • Saw a smashed burrito on the floor of the 45. Poured out some imaginary salsa for the fallen homie. #RIP
