Outbound 9. About 11:30AM.

Posted in 9 San Bruno on February 9, 2011 by 4x24

The 9 San Bruno is one of those lines that picks up a lot of people at all times of the day. I remember I was doing a schedule on the 9 and it was like 11:30 am and I had a standing load. I mean PACKED. Like where did everyone come from? Hahaha

But anyways, this happened as I was going outbound when I was first feeling out all the lines. I was coming down Market St and I was going to turn on 11th to get to the bus stop right at the corner. I’m already scanning the crowd to see who’s who. I see this one guy who usually gots a lot of cans he takes to the recycling center down near Oakdale. He was like 20 feet from the bus stop pole. As I slow into the bus stop I see these 2 white dudes look into the bags next to the pole and start kicking it and when I open the doors they just start to rush on without paying or saying anything. Now as I’m about to say something to them, the black guy jumps on the bus literally right behind them and grabs one of the dudes by the jacket and he pulls away so he comes up right behind him and they start roughing each other up right in the front( like where the elderly seats are). Glad no one was sitting there. So black dude got white dude in like a chokehold and he’s yelling in dudes face:

“What did my bags do to you? Tell me what they did to you!”

He kept repeating it like 2 more times.

So right when they first start tussling around I pop the brake and yell at them “take that shit off the bus or ima call the cops.” Like 30 seconds after black dude finished yelling at dude he let him go and walks back up to the front and pulls out his 2 dollars and tries to put it in the box and I tell him ” you and them cant ride. Yall gonna have to get off the bus.” The black guy looks at me at understands and he gets off. Now mind u, this dude never ever gave me any problems and he would make sure his bags of cans were out of the way when he got on. So it kind of sucked that he had to get off but if your gonna put hands on someone u gonna have to go. So I look back a see the 2 white dudes still on the bus; kinda at the single seats and I yell at them both of you gonna get off the bus. The one dude who caused all this looks back at me through the rear view mirror and says

“Who Me?”

I almost wanted to laugh at this idiot but I had to keep the straight face. He was like

“I didn’t do anything!”

I told him if u don’t get off the bus I’m calling the cops. His other friend didn’t do anything through this whole scene. He just stood their like a dumbass while his friend was getting choked out and while his friend was getting an earful from me.  So they get off the back off the bus and I start to take off and as I look in the rear mirror the idiot decides to kick my bus. Like really?! You still aint gonna get on the bus.


I just keep on rollin…


Outbound 54 6:45pm 1.21.11

Been tryin to upload this one for the last 5 days. POS computer.

I got this one dude who I’ll call a non crazy “crazy” person. Cool dude but this cat got some issues. The first time he got on my bus was a Daly City Bart when the giants were playing and we were talking bout sports for a bit and then started telling me his life story. He went to jail for a bit for some issues with the police where basically his pit-bull bit a cop because they were beating retraining him. So he got out and some dude told him to go the psych ward and say he was crazy.


So when he sees me he has told me how he was in the psycho ward and they made him take some crazy pills but he just “cheeked” them and never swallowed them.  He said his shrink would ask him questions regarding his mental stability and he would get mad because they didn’t want to let him have a dog( part of some rule since he’s unstable) So he would tell the guy things like he was going to jump in front of a train or he was going to hurt himself etc…

So when it was my last day on the 54 I was coming outbound and I got to Cayuga st. and its dude standing at the bus stop. He greets me and says “thanks for paying your taxes bro!” and I was like umm yeah ok. Then he told me that since us taxpayers are the ones paying his check he’s thankful. I started laughing because he came outta nowhere with that one.

So I get to Daly City BART and get off the bus and he comes up to tell me that he got his clipper/RTC pass  a couple days ago and he told me that during the process of them giving him the card they made him take a money test. He said that they put out some bills and change. He then has to put it into a fare box of sorts and it should equal the fare he needs to put in. He tells me that the test is another way for them to verify if he’s lying or not because if he puts the right fare, it would show that he isn’t crazy. So he goes and puts in 1.85 in the box and the money disappears. The lady behind the counter tells him that he needs to try again. So he does. He drops more than 2 dollars in the second time. So the lady tells him to try again. He then tells the lady “is this 3 strikes and your out? I’m on a lot of anxiety pills because I was coming to this meeting.” The lady proceeds to tell him that not to worry and to try again. So he does and it’s wrong again and the lady issues the card to him.  He then told me about how another shrink was questioning him about religion. He tells the guy that he believes in God and how his whole back is tatted up with religious stuff and then he shows me a pic of the Virgin Mary and how he carries that and he carries a card with the grim reaper. I ask him why he carries both and he tells me that he prays in the morning to the Virgin Mary but realizes that the reaper is always one step away. I guess he is right.

So he’s just letting me know hella stuff but I have to cut him off since I had to go to the restroom. I tell him ill catch him later and walk away.
