Disgusting Muni Passenger of the Month



The loud cell phone conversation, filled with narcissistic tales of personal woe, was bad enough. However, it was when the young woman above kicked off her sandals on the 47 Van Ness bus this afternoon, and spread her ugly bare feet across the back row right into my face, that I decided my policy of not publishing unkind photos of people was about to experience a major exception. "I don't want to listen to your stupid personal life or study your knobby toes," I was tempted to say, but did not, so let this photo say it instead.

Obnoxious as she may have been, there is nothing more pathetic than a self righteous dweeb that slyly takes pictures to go home and publish on the Internet. I hope she finds you and kicks your teeth in.

Dear rasko p.: I didn't slyly take that photo. I pulled out my camera with its long Zeiss lens, pointed it at her after listening to her crap and smelling her feet for five minutes, and she was so self-absorbed she didn't even bother to notice.

Times have obviously been tough for Blossom since her sitcom was cancelled.

You are to be commended for not smashing her stupid face in after taking the photograph. What is wrong with these people? Besides intense narcissism and stupidity.

Dear kewlio: Between the mentally ill, the street people hauling bags of possessions from shelter to shelter, and thugs on their way to parole meetings at the Hall of Justice, the 47 bus seems to be the stage for more than its share of horrific scenes. But you're right, the 14 is definitely much scarier, and I avoid it if at all possible.

By the way, I don't usually record these Muni scenes with my camera because I do believe in trying to maintain a certain level of privacy in public life for everyone, but this young woman's mixture of smug self-entitlement and sheer rudeness struck me as a special case, illustrating a wider phenomenon.

Great photo. Personally I love surreptitious photos of people on public transportation. You should submit this to the Muni Diaries site.
