Tube Strike Chaos? Get A Life.

Today's tube strike is predicted to cause chaos in the capital and already reports are coming in of fights breaking out at bus stops as an overburdened bus service struggles to cope. A glance out of the window confirms that the rain is still coming down in stair-rods and I am just visualizing the hordes of sopping wet commuters arriving at their offices in a state of barely controllable rage.
Why do they do it? I understand and salute those workers in essential and socially useful jobs who will go through hell or high water to get in and provide a service that they are committed to, but why are all those in jobs that have no function but the creation of profit making so much effort to add to their own misery this morning? Pull a sicky, and get a life!
