The Frickin’ Tube
Great. Now the Northern Line is broken. That’s me and about half a million other commuters in London out of luck. The thing with the Tube is that when it works, it’s great. But if anything goes wrong, any little thing at all, the whole system collapses in on itself — huge delays, crowds of angry commuters on the trains and on the platforms. That’s because The Tube is a system at capacity and being run at its limit of efficiency. Thankfully, I have the option of working from home today so I don’t have to get caught up in it, but a lot of people don’t have that luxury. By the way, when the Tube drivers say the trains are unsafe and the management (London Underground) says they are, I’m fairly likely to believe the drivers &mdash the people that actually work the trains and are responsible for the safety of the passengers. LU needs to get its act together.
