Someone Spilled the Beans on the 44-O’Shaughnessy

The 44 O'Pinto Beans

Devin’s got the details:

Someone (or quite a few someones) had gotten open a multi-pound bag of food bank dry pinto beans on the 44, and distributed them vigorously around the bus. Several rows of seats had neat piles of beans, and the floor was liberally decorated pretty much the length of the bus.

A woman who got on several stops after us was pacing the length of the bus, taking tons of pictures with her blackberry and talking disgustedly about the scene. I was a bit nonplussed. It’s Muni. They’re dry beans. You can push them off the seat and it’ll take five minutes to sweep up at the yard. In the meantime you get to fantasize about the scenario which led to the beans getting there. Stuff happens on the bus, y’know?

We know. Strange tales of the 44-O’Shaughnessy continue …

    Maybe I’m missing the “art” or “comedy” angle to ‘spilling a bunch of beans on the bus’ but I’m nonplussed too. Maybe most of us just want to ride the damn bus without tripping over a bunch of beans or shoving crap off the seats?
