Video diary: Catching the Z train
Video by Flickr user Mike Monteiro
We asked a few weeks ago for a show of hands: Who’s fallen asleep on Muni? It’s not like a major confession or anything. Amid the racket and ruckus that often defines our public transit system, some of us (I’d bet a lot more than would admit) doze off from time to time.
Like the fella in the video above. I really love his rocking motion. Even as adults, we’re basically infants. Sweet dreams, merry F passenger.
Ha! when I read ‘rocking motion’, I assumed that he was rocking with the movement of the car, but I think he was actually snoring! Classic.
Soon MUNI will be so crowded, everyone will have to sleep sitting up and we’ll be talking about videos like this from “the good old days, when you could sleep slumped over a couple of seats!”
Coming home at night on the 71, there’s often someone sleeping. It’s so common I hardly notice it anymore.
Jesus H. Christ, falling asleep on Muni is such a bad idea. Stay awake!
A year or so ago, I’d take one of the 71 express buses from downtown. That is one bus that had alot! of sleeping people – almost 3/4ths of the passengers. I commented to a driver once that wow! sure was alot of people sleeping on his bus. His reply was (in a scolding tone) that people work all day! He was right 🙁
This guy wins:
Haha I couldn’t make sense of the picture at first – now I’m sleepy.
