Bus Report #57

This morning our bus was treated to a sight rarely seen on a busy city street during the day. At least, judging from the reactions on the faces of my fellow commuters, that is.
Our bus hurtled down 16th Street towards Potrero. It was one of the nice shaved head drivers, the one with the Clark Kent glasses.
He pulled into the stop at Shotwell to let people on and off. There are usually several hookers or junkies hanging out around this corner, and normally they do not occasion a second glance.
However the hooker of the day was crouched over a guy sitting on the MUNI bench with his pants down, two paper bag wrapped cans of beer at their feet.
We all watched, revolted and maybe a little fascinated as they finished, and he patted his pockets for cash, while she bent down again for one of the beers. It was only then that she noticed the bus and must have said something to him. They gestured at the bus but did not move.
As we pulled away, several people sucked their teeth in disgust.

wow, rubbernecking takes on a whole new definition in big city life. here, a van runs off the road, no one injured, no damage and it causes an hr backup.

Wait wait wait! She was performing oral sex? In the bus shelter? Is this what your telling me? And when you say "finished," you mean that he... "finished"?! While you were watching? And this was during the morning rush hour? It's all too much...

yes, Greg, all of the above. But it's a family blog so I didn't feel the need to go into detail. But yes, the whole bus watched.

Funny, until now I thought that San Francisco was filled with class. Apparently not. Can't those people get a dumpster and avoid the bus stops.
