Man with sword on the MUNI. Duboce Triangle, San Francisco.

If you bring a sword on the Muni, it’s going to get attention. The fare inspectors got on at the next stop, and so did a guy with a deck, big earrings, and horn-rimmed glasses. The sword-carrying gentlemen noticed the other guy didn’t tag on, and kindly informed him that the fare inspectors were on board checking Clippers. The man with the skateboard said he wasn’t worried. “Nice sword,” he said.
When the fare inspectors finally got to the skateboarding man, he protested loudly and said they—two random fare inspectors on a random Muni—should know him better. At Cole Valley, one fare inspector said to the other (and to the rest of the N), “I got to get off this train right now, ‘cause I’m about to knock this motherfucker out.”
