You know how it is. You get out of work or leave the house late, and you have to put your face on in transit. A personal favorite is one-handed penciling of your bottom lids (you know what I’m talking about).
We’ve seen pretty serious Caboodles on the bus before, and one lady on the 5-Fulton apparently does it every damn day. But this phenomenon reaches new, perfectly lined heights on the K-Ingleside, via My Muni on Tumblr.
Muni rider Nick has the following report:
“When there aren’t any available seats on the train and/or the fire sprinklers go off, we’ll see who’s laughing then!”

Fun stuff in Twitterlandia @munidiaries: the alphabet according to Muni Metro.
@_mola_mola: #muni driver says: L is for late, M is for missing, T is for tardy.
@Bordash: is the N for never? i can’t come up with anything better.
@Owenchristoff: N: Non-existant. J: joke. K: Knocked-out 🙂
@simplelife9: And J and K is for Just Kidding, there really is no Muni in 5 minutes lol…
This all reminds us of that silly kerfuffle over T-shirts that mocked Muni routes.
Care to fill in the rest or add some to the list? F and S (Shuttle) are feeling left out of the party.

Gene at Hoodscope sent over this photo of his seat mate on the K. Thank goodness for riders like Gene, who, instead of just staring at the Muni Superhero, decide to have a conversation with the man himself.

Update (August 6, 2:17 p.m.): SF Appeal helps answer the question this post asked 18 days ago. Thanks, guys!
Original post: Regular service has resumed after yesterday’s West Portal accident, but the fallout is far from over. The SFAppeal reports that 48 people were injured, four of them critical. Ahem, anybody smell a lawsuit coming? This brings us to a KCBS story that a reader sent to us about how the MTA board approved the purchase of something known as catastrophe insurance, which pays for lawsuits. Pretty sad that such a policy is warranted.
But lo and behold, a mere three days following the board’s vote, an accident more or less validates that decision.
Since the MTA board just voted to purchse the “catastrophe insurance” last Wednesday, we’re not sure if a further vote is necessary to enact the insurance policy. Or does the Board of Supervisors need to approve this?
And does the policy cover Saturday’s crash? We doubt it, unless this is a magic policy that’s magically already in place. It would be nice, if only to cover Muni’s already-broke ass. If the policy isn’t in effect, we foresee the potential for multiple lawsuits. If that happens, does Muni fall into an even deeper hole? Ugh.
