34 London Commuters Who Have Lost The Will To Live

Tired and emotional tweets from Tube strike day two.

1. Today day two of a Tube strike dawned in London.

2. And it’s safe to say that no one was having fun.


5. Conditions were cramped on the few Underground lines that were running.


The tube strike means you get the aromas of other passengers. Today a woman smelled so much of celery I was almost compelled to question her

Squeezed in #tube & watching shocked faces of fellow commuters when we arrived in next station (seeing packed train) is #priceless. #strike

— Kristina Kasalova (@lascalca)

London with this tube strike you are really spoiling us. Woman threw herself at back doors of bus in effort to get on and missed. Enough.

9. Interpersonal relations were… strained.

If you stop me from getting my train because you're taking in the sights of Kings Cross station, prepare to get eye-rolled, hard.

14. Things weren’t looking that great on the buses, either.

19. Or on the water.

20. There was a lot of bag-related shade being thrown about.

There’s a tube strike on. Get your bag off the seat you tit.

— asterix (@asterixinspace)

Oh, did I make you move your bag so I could sit on the bus during this tube strike. I apologise, I absolutely deserve that look of hate.

— Alex S (Yelp!) (@yelplondon)

22. A lot.

There's a tube strike on, so the buses might be a bit busier today so move the bag you bought from fuckin Sports Direct off the spare seat.

— Seb White (@sebytfc)

23. And there wasn’t much love around for cyclists.

People on bikes in london are just fucking busy bodies, buy a car or get a bus, and when u get home go for a bike ride! Its not 1830's

— jacky boy (@jackyboyrogers)

— Jacek Toczydlowski (@toczydlowski)

25. Or people on other forms of two-wheeled transport.

One of the worst things about #tubestrike is the increased number of idiots on adult scooters.

— El Murphy (@elmurphy)

In case of #tubestrike - bring your child's scooter to work and WHOOSH! Delays cut by 50%* *(fitness depending)

— Kayleigh Poacher (@Kapoochi)

27. In fact, the general consensus about the Tube strike was overwhelmingly negative.

For fuck sake tube strike go home. No one even likes you! You have no friends.
