Don’t Mind if I Do
I have to say, of all the pitstops I’ve seen in my eight-plus years of riding Muni, this was probably the most efficient. It was around Seventh or Eighth Avenue, in the middle of the block. He must’ve called it in.
Your place to share stories on and off the bus.
31, right? That driver has done that to me at least twice, both at Emperor Palace.
31 it was, doyle. perhaps we can start planning for four-minute diversions when we board the bus and see this guy.
wait a minute, is that a driver picking up his Chinese food? i can hardly believe my eyes!
Why yes, it is a driver getting his chow on. You’ve never seen that before? I meant only to remark at how efficiently he did that. To say nothing of his breakneck driving after this point. Seriously, hold the fuck on — this driver has hot food, and he’s not fucking around.
That shit happens to me all the time! One time, on the 71, the driver stopped to grab a fat slice on Haight. When he returned, I yelled “What the hell was that?” His response: “Hey, we’re all entitled to a break.” Good point. I wonder, are there designated “breaks” for Muni drivers, or do they just stop when needed?
What the!? I guess I must be riding Muni during non-meal times – my 47 driver has yet to stop for a snack in my experience…
