A "MUNI Survival Guide" I Found Online....

Hopefully the MUNI Mini-Meltdown of Yesterday hasn't ruined your life too much and you're having a better day today than yesterday. Although I work out of my home, I rely on MUNI when I have multiple meetings and errands to run and when I realized what had happened, I just stayed at home and pushed everything over a few days.

I found this unusual "MUNI Survival Guilde" online while doing a Google search. If anyone has any idea who did this, I'd like to know so I can A) give them credit for their work and B) high-five them on the coining of the term "Edgehog." Enjoy.

Comments

That is so funny it is almost criminal. Thanks.

Of course, I probably seem like an edgehog because I hate sitting next to the window, but I will allow someone into the other seat and when I see a bus or train filling up, I turn to the side so someone can get in.

I've seen that before and it made me laugh.

I wish it told me how to deal with freaky Glass-Eyed stalkers on Muni buses that like to grab and touch you.

Because, believe it or not, I have this problem now.

This is hysterical. So true. Thanks!

I take Muni to the Zoo...Sometimes I don't leave the train because I've seen all the wildlife that I need to see.

How about those lovely edgehogs who won't even get up to let you pass and expect you to somehow levitate to the empty seat? Maybe I should start crawling over them instead!

I thought this was very funny until I saw the comments about Chinese people. I know the elderly and recently-arrived Chinese can be rude and pushy, and I've been known to joke about it myself. They come from a different place and culture where that kind of behavior is necessary and ordinary. The 30 Stockton is especially hairy in this regard. But to generalize these characteristics to all Chinese people is racist.

Karen, I think you raise a good point - to be honest I was a little uncomfortable about that last bit. But I decided to post it anyone to

a) find out who made it (since I found it online at LiveJournal)

and b) spark some discussion.
