Funny: Muni LOLs

‘Sudden stops are sometimes heaven’

I’m thinking a sudden stop right in front of your home, or your favorite bar, or AT&T Park … those would be heavenly, right?

h/t Muni rider Scary-blob: “Please hold on. Sudden stops are sometimes Heaven.”

Three Winning Moves Seen on Muni

Most people just get on the bus and plug their earphones in, but these fine riders have turned it up to 11 by busting out some absolutely awesome bus-riding moves. Hot from our Twitter wires, may I present the three most awesome moves seen on Muni this week:

  1. Man in motorized wheelchair on Muni after parking his ride: “The eagle has landed!” with a jaunty thumbs up. Sir, you’re golden.
  2. Trio singing “Cruella Deville” on 21 Hayes.
  3. A passenger’s Chihuahua eating flaming hot Cheetos on the 31. Classic.

This week’s strange and wonderful Things on Muni are brought to you by @beausepher, @MichaelSwander, and @TheNightBug.

Muni stories (and winning moves) are best enjoyed in person at Muni Diaries Live. Join us on Saturday, Nov. 8, for a night of true, hilarious, weird, gross, and sweet stories that can only happen on the bus. Grab a ticket and we’ll see you there!

And then a drumstick landed on my lap

Update 10/24

Rider Janis spotted more crimes against fried chicken on the 6. It’s not *that*bumpy a ride, jeez, hold the eff on to your food if you’re gonna eat on Muni.

Original post:

I love fried chicken for breakfast like any normal person, but this kind of meal is probably best enjoyed in the privacy of your own home in your sweatpants, and not on Muni. Via the Muni Diaries Facebook page, Muni rider Kealani says,

Nothing says Muni like someone dropping fried chicken on your leg at 10 a.m.

I mean, what’s the right thing to do here, pick it up off your lap and give it back to the person? Or take a picture of it and send it to Muni Diaries? (Rhetorical question, you guys!)

It’s not just smells, anger, and despair. Muni is also a roving audio laboratory, much to the delight and chagrin of us all.

These fellow Muni riders clued us in some things they overheard on Muni this week:

  • OH on Muni: “My cheek is sweating up my cellphone screen”
  • [on the J] Guy on phone: Yes but he’s vegan and I’m not very vegan-friendly.
  • Overheard at the #Muni stop: THIS IS THE LIVING WAGE!
  • OH: and he was programming on a go cart-he’s that badass, oh and he has a masters too. never forgetting headphones again

All righty then.
