Cupid Shot Me on Muni

Cupid is that overpaid lazy fuck who is always on a cigarette break. On the rare occasions when he actually does his job, though, sometimes he does it on Muni. I know. Here’s proof.

Eric forms a quick plan on the bus so he can meet his future wife:

I see the most amazingly beautiful woman ever in my life…Holy shit! What to do?! “Sit next to her, idiot!” I tell myself. Well, I don’t want to seem like a fool so I hold my paper out in front of me (turns out that it was upside down). I can’t stop staring at her hands.. they are long and sleek, so beautiful.. plus I can’t just stare directly at her, that would be rude.

Wil proves that he’s not just random guy on the bus:

It started, like most of my days end, waiting for the N-Judah outside the CalTrain station, reading, listening to my headphones. The train ambled up a couple minutes earlier than NextBus predicted (for perhaps the first time in history.) So, I scrambled to get my bag together and slipped onto the second car as the “door closing” warning chimed out. I looked up at the almost empty car as I pressed the back of my wallet against the Clipper terminal and saw a girl that made my heart immediately break into a hundred pieces.

Steven and Vickie met one day while riding the 22-Fillmore en route to the outer Richmond. Their initial attraction to each other survived a transfer to the 38-Geary:

People are finding Muni a perfectly romantic San Francisco place. We’ve even received wedding photos taken on the bus:

Heather and Ed had their wedding photo shoot at the Muni yard.

If this post made you gag, my sincere apologies. Worry not: we’re only a few hours away from our regular programming of food fights, suspicious liquids, celebrity sightings, and cameos in adult films! In the mean time, if you have a Muni love story to share, today would be the day.

    …all right…that last photo is shades of “The Graduate” of course…my all-time favorite movie…

    For some reason I’m always surprised when I find out that young heterosexual couples in SF actually get married.

  • Daishin

    I would say marriage seems so bourgeoisie for young people…especially those with red and green hair. After all this isn’t Concord or Walnut Creek. I was so hoping that young folks would transcend the whole husband-wife-children thing which holds us to old, tired paradigms that maintain and affirm the status quo.

      Next time my grandmother gets on my case about this, I am going to say exactly what you said above. Wonder what she’ll say…it cracks me up just imagining saying this at her dinner table. 😀

    …i just KNEW that person could NOT get through THAT statement without using PARADIGM…
