Ever wonder what the Road Runner has been doing since his retirement from television? Here’s your fellow Muni rider Jenni with more:

Today’s ride home on the 31AX at first had me annoyed, but by the time I got home I was laughing hysterically. You see, the driver is an unnecessary horn honker. Not honk, actually – it’s not rude – just two short beeps. Car double parked? Beep beep! Pedestrian maybe thinking about stepping somewhat close to the edge of the sidewalk? Beep beep! Car changing lanes? Beep beep? Car on the right? Beep beep? Car on the left? Beep beep! Car in front? Beep beep! Nothing at all? Beep beep! Ambulance coming through the intersection? You guessed it: Beep beep! Didn’t even slow down. Niiiice.

The other passengers seemed to be equally amused…

Wow, not even for an ambulance?

    If everyone stopped every time they heard and ambulance in this town, no one would get anywhere.

    any chance you ever been to Vietnam? This is exactly what they do there, and after excessive horn usage it pretty much means nothing…
