Everyone in San Francisco loves complaining about Muni, but a sensational video posted on YouTube showed ugly tensions flaring up.

And now the Municipal Transportation Agency is looking into the incident, which occured on the 20-Columbus line.

The video depicts two women screaming at each other, and ends in a fist fight.

A passenger eventually broke it up, though at least one egged the pair on in Cantonese, according to a translation.

Drivers are supposed to report incidents like this at the end of their shift, but frankly, it's a pretty typical scene for anyone familiar with the neighborhood.

Buses running through Chinatown and North Beach are often jam-packed, and run incredibly slowly, leaving riders frustrated and likely late to their destinations.

Still, if you think that's ugly, just sit back and watch the long-running fights over the Central Subway boondoggle.

Hell hath no wrath like a Telegraph Hill dweller or Chinatown powerbroker scorned.

Jackson West is more surprised that anyone was actually able to find a 20-Columbus.
