A Muni bus is filled with assholes
We all know how frustrating, stressful, and downright miserable it can be to ride Muni. But have you ever thought about how frustrating, stressful, and downright miserable it is to be the person driving a Muni bus?

Well, wonder no more. This unhappy Muni driver lets us know exactly how he feels about unruly passengers and his job hauling your ass around town. 

Watch this video, "Most Irate Muni Bus Driver Ever, Part 1," courtesy of SFCitizen, in which the driver threatens to throw all passengers off the bus.

And it seems driver-passenger relations just went downhill from there:

In "Most Irate Muni Bus Driver Ever, Part 2," a passenger gets booted from the bus.


"And the paper says I get paid too much," the driver snaps.

Well, one thing you can rely on Muni for is a good show.

i'm not to sure what reaction the person who filmed this was aiming for considering from what we all see it apears not to be the beginning of what happened.so they either dislike MUNI and its Operators or Need 4G?? LMAO!!! j/k..BUT seriously folks, im sure we can all admit there are definitely some jerks that operate public transportaion,however I Truly believe they're only jerks because of all the "Jerks" they pick up ALL day!! Sure,Operating Public Transportation isn't Fighting Fires Nor Chasing Bad Guys BUT i've ridden MUNI for a very long time and they deal with a lot and it's sad as a people we don't hold Our Public Transit Operartors in a Higher Regaurd because Most of us no matter the money or benefits wouldn't even flirt w/the idea of doing their job. Sorry for the novel folks BUT to all if any drivers are out there payin any attention to this mess,you all do have some passengers who are paying attention to what you do and we appreciate it.

 I'd like to know what the young man kicked off the bus did.

Muni should have a "Do Not Board" list of multi-felonious passengers who would face a lifetime ban and drivers' responsibilities should extend beyond "operating" to vehicle and transporting passengers safely from point A to B.

The driver did exactly what he should have. He was protecting himself as well as the passengers. It's hard for operators in San Francisco because nobody has their backs. They are constantly assaulted, abused and mistreated. GOOD FOR THE OPERATOR.

If you watch the video, the bus driver refers to himself as an asshole, hence the quotes around the word "asshole" in the headline.

WHY IS THE TITLE OF THIS VIDEO "ASSHOLE" AND DOESN'T CLEARLY SHOW WHY THE OPERATOR TOLD THE OBVIOUS "TYRANT"-PASSENGER TO GET OFF..IT JUST GOES TO SHOW LOP-SIDED BLOGGERS

i'm sure that anyone who had taken public transit can attest to the frustation of drivers who do not take charge of their buses.  i don't know what initiated the exchange but the driver made it clear who runs that bus.

I wish more Muni drivers cared more about their passengers. From what I can tell he does not take any crap and that is just what I want my driver to be like. I see how much crap the drivers take. Good for him for doing what he did.

I say good for the bus driver.  It sucks being on a bus with unruly passengers and the bus driver just pretends nothing is going on.
