Random Bus Moments

A week's worth of randomness...

Drunk man talking to me about getting his car broken into, 33 Stanyan Line

Man picking a fight with the (in) famous bus driver, and threatening him ("You'll be seeing me again, sir."), 22 Fillmore Line

Woman with sausage curls, even her bangs, reading Sherman Alexie, 22 Fillmore Line

Man sitting on a molded plastic chair, using a Richmond District pay phone on a street corner, 3 times this week already.

Sleepy Chinese girl who wouldn't wake up when she and her mom got to their stop, 38 Line.

Drunk man #2, who smelled like he'd taken a bath in Robitussin, glazed eyes and heavy heavy limbs, accidentally kept falling asleep against my shoulder. So I kept shrugging him off, coughing loudly, pushing him.

The neck tattoo guy who gets on at Harrison smiled at me on Monday.

A girl with a toaster took up two seats, one for herself and one for the toaster.

but what kind of toaster? the poppy-uppy kind or the toaster "oven?" the poppy-uppy kind should be held in the lap. the oven, however, could warrant the extra seat, especially if the bottom is nasty.

It was a toaster oven, so old and nasty I couldn't figure out why she would even have wanted it. She also had a paper sack of plastic hangers and knives.
