Reader Alexandra writes in with an interesting tale of a blocked entrance at Fillmore and Duboce, a “get it done” MUNI driver, some helpful passengers, and a crabby cabbie. Read on:
On the 9th around 1440 I was on my typical daily commute home…All of a sudden on filmore & duboce the J halts-there’s a truck blocking the tracks…driiinnnng drinnnng nothing happens …by now there’s a taxi on the right site blaring his horn.
So the driver gets out with his coffee and it turns out that the truck broke down. The driver then announces over the intercom that he needs some guys to help push the truck out of the way. Oh..and he also tells the obnoxious driver politely to get his ass out of the taxi and help push.
What followed was just this great comical relief. The driver with his coffee, his back against the truck pushing with several guys from the J-Church and then the disgruntled taxi driver. About a second after they push the truck out of the way the muni help truck roars in….and the driver simply tells them that its all done.
When GTD comes to MUNI, everyone wins!
