When all else fails on Muni

Alt. title: Until Muni equips its ridership with a well-deserved dining car

Rider Leigh let us know about this crafty fellow passenger she encountered on Muni Metro recently. “Shoe.” That’s Australian for “cup holder.”

Big Bird and the Easter Bunny wait patiently for Muni

We’re guessing that zombie Jesus wasn’t available to accompany the Easter Bunny this year like he was back in 2012.

Via Muni rider Frankie: “On our way to grab lunch this afternoon. Birds ride the [sic] Muni just like the rest of us too.”

Muni shopping list: butt pillows

This proves so many theories: 1) Not everyone uses smartphones to do everything; 2) Muni is there to serve (see #1); 3) We all lose things from time to time, and 4) #3 really sucks.

Losing shopping lists especially sucks when you’re in need of butt pillows.

h/t Muni rider Ellen: “Someone who rode muni earlier today needs more butt pillows in life. Don’t we all”

Late-night Muni party of one

Just when riding Muni becomes rote and something you don’t really think about anymore, a late-night bus comes along to keep things interesting. Rider Martin had this to share on the Muni Diaries Facebook page:

Crack deal while drinking vodka and arizona watermelon. Keeping things interesting on the 38 bus

I would’ve gone with Arnold Palmer Strawberry, myself.

Guy ‘blows’ attempt to be courteous on Muni

We’re not always treated to a one-two rudeness punch, but there are some very special Muni riders out there.

Rider Mark, intrepid reporter in the field, says, “On the 9L [recently]…this guy blew his nose into his hand and smeared it all over that blue emergency seat. Then he moved across the aisle and told some lady to sit over there.”

Well, then. Regular rider-readers will know how protective people are of the smells-like-Christmas-morning seats on new Muni buses. Still others will know that you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t sometimes when it comes to public nose-blowing.

We’ll side with polite nose-blowing, given the apparent alternative.

Spotted on Muni: Vibrams and leg warmers

Because we observe the ancient adage that what cannot be unseen by one must be shared on social media/the Internet with all, we bring you the above. Toe shoes are one thing*; paired with fuchsia leg warmers, they are another thing entirely.
