    17 Struggles Everyone That Lives In Zone 6 Has

    As far as other Londoners are concerned, you live in the middle of nowhere.

    1. Half the time people are shocked that there even is a zone 6.

    2. And this is what they imagine it looks like.

    3. You may have just given up and just started saying you live in Essex/Kent/Surrey/Middlesex.

    4. Basically you have to explain yourself every time you're asked where you live.

    5. Sometimes you have to fight the urge to get really defensive about it.

    6. No one can really ever be bothered to come round to yours.

    7. And when you go out, you feel like Cinderella.

    8. Or you feel like a burden on your friends because you have to stay over at someone's.

    9. But it's actually quite lovely.

    10. Replacement bus services basically mean you can't go to work.

    11. But you can always get a seat on the tube if you live at the end of a line.

    12. But if you take one of the commuter trains from the counties then you're fucked like everyone else in London.

    13. You curse the privatisation of the railways because your Travelcard is so fucking expensive.

    14. You probably have power naps on your commute.

    What else are you supposed to do for 40 minutes?

    15. But you get a bit more for your money in terms of accommodation.

    16. There is actually a temperature change from central London.

    17. For all the commuting pain, it's actually super nice to still live in a place where you can reach central London and country parks with ease.
