If anyone needs any proof about the ineptitude of the SF Municipal Railway's overpaid idiot staff, this video is proof enough. As a former resident, my reaction is "been there, seen that!". Note how in the last minute or so MUNI staff can be seen clearly outside doing absolutely nothing. Five bucks says the driver was chatting to a friend on their cellphone or another rider at the time. Serious anger management issues here too - the Chinese woman barely nudged the other woman's bag.

Hilarious.

I've seen a few fights and rude drunkards/doped-up people (including a guy sitting in back smoking a "dipper" wearing his pants on top of his head) back in my days of riding public trans. too.

To be fair to the driver though, what are they supposed to do? I know the Metrobus drivers in DC will basically pull the bus over and make them both get off, or if it's bad enough they'll call the cops. They're just at work, they don't want to get involved.



oh boy!!!

Both women needlessly escalated this, but the African-American woman was clearly "more in the wrong" for waving her hands in the other woman's face and then finally striking her.

Gotta love the Chinese woman's taunts of "FAH YU!" though...

MUNI has failed the city on every front. It's not reliable, not safe and no longer a cheap alternative.
Why should the bus driver care? He/she has excellent benefits and more job security than a United 747 Captain.
Glad the Chinese lady kicked that b!tches @ss!

I agree. It's a major problem with San Francisco. You can't trust that the bus will show up when it says it will, you can't trust that the trip won't take six times longer than it should, and the system is difficult to navigate.

As soon as my ankle is finished healing, I'm getting a bike.

Last time I paid attention to Muni (and I re-arranged my life to take place in the East Bay, Peninsula, or Marin so I wouldn't have to ride it), the drivers' union had a clause in their contract by which they could cause six injury accidents before they became "eligible for discipline."

Eligible.

So cause six traffic accidents with a 60-foot bus and discipline will still be optional.

There are so many reasons to hate this town - I really hope I get that new job in Miami.

I've seen a guy jacking off ON the bus stop (don't know what's so hot about a route map, but to each their own I guess) on the 5 at Divisadero, and I've also seen a woman run up to a bus stop with a baseball bat and go after a guy she apparently didn't like somewhere in SoMa.

Nice to see the occasional junkie arranging stuff in their little go-pack across the aisle now and then as well  Yeah sure

....and this is a city that tells us to be 'green' and encourage using MUNI? That is partially why I've hopped off the environmental bandwagon a few years ago. I used to have faith in our system. But after being late for work on several occasions and almost end up late for job interviews, I said screw it!
Even under optimal operating conditions, it takes almost 1 hour to get from the Outer Sunset where I live to the Financial District/Downtown. It's only 4 miles away!
If I didn't have to wear business attire, I'd ride my bicycle to work.
Now I budget out 2 hours to get downtown when riding MUNI.

Don't EVEN get me started on those BART operators!  mad 
Just like MUNI, unless your father, uncle, cousin or parent works at BART, don't even bother applying for a job with them. Those jobs are set aside for the relatives of those who already work there.
It's a very secure job with excellent benefits and they don't even have to work late hours.
BART doesn't run 24 hours because most of the people there don't want to work graveyard. I don't buy that maintenance excuse they cooked up for not being a 24 hour system.
On top of that, BART is very expensive to ride. Even in my gas guzzler, it's still cheaper to drive than take BART.

Yes. I have seen a man masturbate on the bus.
That didn't bother me so much. What bothers me is when they urinate, defecate or vomit. That stuff smells and can slide all over the place.
The grosses thing I've seen was a homeless guy vomit on a lady wearing a business dress suit. She looked to be on her way to a job interview or important meeting. I felt really bad for her. The vomit not only ruined her clothes, but it got in to her bag that was carrying her laptop and other items. The homeless guy just walked off at the next stop as if nothing happened.
Stuff like this happens on a regular basis.

Now here is another recent MUNI story much worse than these ladies brawl;

http://cbs5.com/local/muni.bus.stabbing.2.1171337.html

An 11-year-old San Francisco boy stabbed on a Muni bus...

Hatim Mansori was riding home alone from baseball practice Tuesday after school when a man attacked him at the back of the bus, stabbing him once in the abdomen, according to police.

....doctors said he could have bled to death if he had arrived five minutes later.

...the attack was completely unprovoked. Mansori had been sitting with a balloon on his lap at the time,

Muni officials confirmed a surveillance camera monitoring the back of the bus had not been working at the time.

The suspect has not yet been arrested,



WTF?
Those expensive surveillance cameras are brand spanking new!
An 11 year old kid was almost killed!
A smelly homeless bum got away on foot in a densely populated area?
No one had the balls to try to stop this bum? Most bums are not that strong either.
Our system in this town is completely defunct and they have the nerve to enforce fares?
Had this bum not had a transfer (proof of payment) I am sure authorities would have caught him immediately.

....and on top of all of this, Gavin Newsom, Board of Supervisors and treehugging environmentalist tell us that we shouldn't drive??!?!?!?!
This is the main reason why I have given the entire 'green' movement the BIG MIDDLE FINGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But I arrived in SF from the Boston suburbs, a born-and-raised, dyed-in-the-wool Volvo Democrat, and less than five years of Bay Area life turned me into a staunch conservative.

Too many people in SF and other cities see the homeless as a problem that needs to be solved with compassion and won't do a thing that might hurt " these poor down trodden people". A vast majority of homeless are just worthless bums leaching off of society. Too many people see the homeless as pets that need to be taken care of not the pests that need to be eliminated that they really are. Every city on the west coast sends their bums to SF because they will be out of their hair and the city of SF will be nice to them.

Heh heh, I guess you never rode on one of the Boeings, then? Those things were terrible. I really don't mind the Bredas at all, though they lack character.

As for the topic at hand, I've witnessed far worse things on Muni myself. I've seen knives, guns, heard death threats...I don't ride Muni unless I have to. Nepotism has completely undermined that agency! It's really unfortunate, because good public transportation is essential in a city like SF, with very limited parking.

Falstaff, do you have some numbers (from various metro studies programs, or the Coalition for the Homeless, etc.) to back up the idea that the "majority" are worthless bums? I have no doubt that some of them are, but I do wonder about the numbers. My problem isn't so much that a city shouldn't "be nice" to them; it's that the same liberals who complain about the homeless problem are the ones who fight hardest against the only realistic solutions to it. Namely mayor Jordan's "Matrix" program, which was really just a strict program of enforcing the loitering statutes; homeless folks would get picked up for loitering and routed to area shelters, if appropriate. After Jordan left office the homeless population visibly increased by seemingly tenfold. Jordan's left-wing opponents said the program violated those homeless folks' "civil rights." Are these same liberals making the same noise in wintry climes? There they'd be crusading for the homeless and poor's "right" to freeze to death!!

Yes, that was shameful! Almost as bad as the Berkeley city council declaring the Armed Forces recruiting office "an unwanted intruder." These episodes only serve to perpetuate negative stereotypes about the Bay Area. For the record, I moved here from Cambridge, Mass. myself, and I still love it here, in spite of these idiots.

I used to be a homeless sympathizer when I first moved here. Many of the homeless advocates claim that the high cost to buy a home in San Francisco is the cause of homelessness in San Francisco.  gasp 
Considering that these people are mostly mentally ill and drug addicted, there is no way in hell that these people would ever be able to hold a serious job, qualify for a $700,000.00 home loan or even be able rent a place for $1,000.00 per month.
In all of the years I put in ads for roommates in shared rentals, I've never had a homeless person come look as a potential renter.

That story would expose some serious flaws with MUNI.
Flaws much worse than the obvious.
Keep in mind, many riders and former riders are angry about the fare increases, fare inspectors, cuts in services ON TOP of the routine malfunctioning system.
To expose that these brand new cameras don't work would be bad P.R. for MUNI.
The cost to repair these cameras would be much less than what MUNI pays their fare inspectors.
The fare inspector positions were created for relatives of MUNI that were not competent enough to be bus/train operators.

If that's not an indicator of serious lack of anything resembling skill, I don't know what is. To drive a MUNI train: let ATS create, implement, and eventually worsen even the slightest delay in the Castro or Market tunnels.

To drive a MUNI bus: follow the herd started by the first guy to get off his extended break. Occasionally spend 20 minutes getting help from other MUNI staff when you can't get the trackless trolley caternary re-attached to the lines because you took a corner turn too fast and/or wide!!

Hilarious Superfly, you made me choke up with laughter with all these versions!!!  rotfl  rotfl  rotfl 



oh boy!!!
25 Superfly : 唔使客 m̀hsái haakhei
26 Post contains links Alberchico : Breaking news: The chinese lady involved in this incident speaks to the cameras for the first time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lKcovAC3Js
27 Superfly : That's a guy.
28 Alberchico : that was the joke
29 Superfly : He was funny though. MUNI officials and their buddies in the local media are probably afraid to talk to that lady or anyone involved. This video reve
30 Alberchico : To be fair it was a long accordion bus that was packed so the driver probably didn't even see the fight until it was over and even then had no way of
31 Superfly : True. But this wasn't on BART. This fight was on MUNI.
32 LH459 : Here's the condensed version: my friend was at her wit's end because her roommate had moved his mother and gang-banger brother into the apartment wit
33 Superfly : WHAT?!?!?!?! That is terrible! The sad thing is that I am not surprised. This totally sounds like something Kamala Harris would do. Kamala Harris has
34 F9Widebody : What bothers me most about MUNI is how many people get in the back door without paying a dime. That's why the fares went up.....
35 Superfly : No that is NOT why the fares went up. I am glad people board through the back door, particularly on busy routes. It speeds the process and commute ti
36 LH459 : Yes, several other people told me the same thing at the time it happened. Apparently she achieves her high conviction rate by prosecuting cases like
37 Superfly : Yep. She goes after easy targets. Meanwhile violent attempted murders, vandals and those who have assaulted innocent people freely walk the streets.
38 LH459 : I really liked him, too! His policies clearly separated violent, repeat offenders from non-violent, minor offenders. I doubt if my friend's case ever
39 Superfly : Very true. San Francisco was a safe city under his administration as well. Terence Hallinan lost a lot of support from the Democratic machine as a re
40 F9Widebody : I have been on buses where the bus had to wait before departing while people boarded in the rear door and nothing was happening upfront. It's also wh
41 F9Widebody : Although I admit this is a good point...
42 Superfly : Not everyone boarding through the back is a fare evader. Many already have transfers and fast-passes. It's simply quicker to board through the back s
43 DocLightning : And it's so easy to fix, too! Ban cash fares and institute punch cards! Why does MUNI not have punch cards for people who want to ride the bus interm
44 Superfly : ...and you live in a part of the city that has better MUNI service. It only takes you 45 minutes for the 1.5 mile commute to downtown. As far as your
45 Airstud : Doc, would you really? MUNI vehicles are super-grimy, super-gross, and full of gross people. As a committed germophobe; I haven't set foot on ANY MUNI
46 Czbbflier : Aaron747, I think we've found a crease in your armour (I just HAVE to avoid the pun if I were to replace 'crease')..... You seem to be the exemplary
47 Superfly : In the 15 years I've liked here, MUNI has always been plauged with problems. When were you here? I agree and I certainly didn't mean to come off as i
48 Czbbflier : I was in San Francisco about 10 years ago for a business meeting- I stayed the weekend and rode the MUNI a few times. I found nothing out of the ordi
49 Aaron747 : Dunno about that - an AA flight diverted to SFO flying DFW-NRT just a couple weeks ago because of unruly passengers. That is the source of my conster
50 Superfly : ...and you were most likely centrally located and didn't have to use it to go far. Those of us in the non-touristy residential areas, riding MUNI can
51 Czbbflier : Hmmmm. Methinks you have strong feelings regarding the MUNI. lol I had a quick perusal of other miscellaneous comments and it appears that you are no
52 Superfly : Aaron has every right to have strong feelings about MUNI, just as I do. Our city has destroyed freeways, blocked of streets to create parks that end
53 Czbbflier : Well shiver me timbers! Just so you know, I went to the MUNI website, found that they are looking for a Chief Operating Officer (COO) and applied for
54 Superfly : They are required by law to post job openings. I guarantee they already have someone they know lined up for that job. I think we'd see the Boeing 270
55 SmithAir747 : I have coined a new nickname for MUNI: San Francisco Miserable Railway! SmithAir747
56 Czbbflier : No doubt- whatever it takes to carry on the corporate culture.... Funny- I was just talking with a couple of friends who were in SFO last week and th
57 Superfly : That's a rather tame story. I see that happen every single day. Actually there is no respect for MUNI riders in San Francisco. San Francisco is still
58 N1120A : This description got me to spend the time to watch the video. Fucking hilarious. Love how the Chinese lady started throwing kicks. MUNI is getting WA
59 Superfly : ...and you live where?
60 N1120A : Not the point. I used it extensively fairly recently and it worked well.
61 Superfly : ...and where did you stay? It certainly wasn't in the residential areas where most residence actually live. The gripes against MUNI is warranted.
62 N1120A : Financial District, though I was in residential areas much of the time.
63 Superfly : Just as I thought. You were in the business hub and tourist area. That area is well served by MUNI.
64 Aaron747 : If you weren't using the 5, 14, 24, 28, 29, 30, or Owl services, you can't really opine. MUNI Metro doesn't count either. Neither does the 38 line, w
65 Superfly : MUNI metro between Castro to downtown is great. For teh rest of us in the less glamorous parts of town, it's pure HELL! When I lived in the Twin Peak
66 Aaron747 : How the **** does one end up on Noriega from UCSF?? Unbelievable. Although... I had a friend who often hosted massive parties at his parents' place o
67 Czbbflier : Crappy routes = junior drivers. Newbies get off route and get lost. I've been known to get off route. Some even get off route in trolleybuses where t
68 Superfly : It's MUNI. They can screw up just about anything. None of these drivers were junior drivers. Again, please don't take this as an insult to all bus dr
