‘On Riding the Bus in San Francisco’


It’s always good to get a fresh perspective on what to us is the everyday.

For just that purpose, “Modern Zebra” has got us covered.

The first time I rode Muni as a new resident of San Francisco, I witnessed the nonsensical hubris of man in its purest (and most unhygienic) form. A gentleman stumbles onto the bus and falls into the seat right beside me. (There are at least 20 other empty seats on the bus.) His raised t-shirt exposes his throbbing gut donning a freshly bloodied patch of gauze.

His sonnet begins: “I just got out of the hospital. I got stabbed.”

“Oh my God.”

“Yeah…Can I have your number?”

At the far end of the bus, I see an old man shaking his head for me.

What’s the best/worst pickup line you’ve heard on Muni? Share and share alike!
