Muni Metaphors, Part 2: Dating
Photo by Troy Holden
Last month, we posted a call for metaphors comparing our lovely little beleaguered transit system to, well, to anything readers wanted. We got some nice responses.
But now, over the last 12 hours, we’ve seen a couple show-stopping tweets of the Muni-metaphor variety. They’re both of the same sub-genre:
“muni is like a dude you sleep with once who steals all the covers and keeps trying to have sex with you while you’re trying to go to bed.” by @janee_
“Muni is like a dude you wake up to after a drunken night of alchool & thrown up pizza in your bed.” by @moMegs
So it’s time for another request: Single people, recently shacked-up, married, whatever … think of your best or worst dating experiences and compare them to Muni. Okay, GO!
Muni is like speed dating. One minute you’re yawning…the next minute you’re hanging on for dear life.
Apologies in advance to my single sisters in solidarity, but if I were a hetero male d-bag, I could say:
Muni is like a new girlfriend. She either sucks or doesn’t.
You just can’t tell when Muni’s going to come.
Ooh, related: I met the first guy I ever went out with on the 24-Divis. He was a minor carrying a market with a tip larger than 1/2 inch, which just means that. Nothing more.
Muni’s like dating a shoe that’s about to drop…you know it’s going to, but not exactly when.
was about to pursue a stronger comparison to dating (“coming and going”) but it became a hot mess of terrible phrasing.
We accept R rated comments (and beyond) 😀
Muni is like expecting something from someone even though you know it will never come.
Muni is like a love hate relationship where you hate it but you depend on it.
@janee kiiiiiinda stole that from me. or it could be completely original, worded exactly like mine. whatevs
nevermind, there were quotes in the tweet. i am placated, yet for some reason cannot delete original post
wow. let’s see whether @janee has anything to say for herself. @janee?
