I once saw a man standing in his backyard as my train was passing by. I saw him pick up a rock and throw it at the window of my train car. The window cracked, and the riders were all quite startled, but fortunately, no one was injured.
Many years ago I was on BART while very pregnant. The train car had only one available seat. A man shook his finger at me as I tried to sit down in it and said, "Uh, Uh, Uh, Uh, Uhhhh". He then stole the seat from me! I glared at him until I had to get off at my stop, and as I stepped out onto the platform, I yelled back at him, "You must have been raised in a sewer!"

I once witnessed that well-known "Naked BART Acrobat" while I was in the Embarcadero station waiting for my train. It was an unusual experience. The nudity was an interesting touch. I guess everyone's got to have a gimmick.
Recently my friend's grandmother had the door close on her leg as she was getting out of the train. She sued BART and won a settlement, even though she had no broken bones, but just a lot of bruising and swelling.

I was trying to get home from the Lake Merritt stop in Oakland once and someone gave me wrong directions, so I took four different trains, trying to get home, and I ended up in Richmond.
