No, the apocalypse isn't coming, it's just a Tube strike.
You'd be forgiven for thinking the end of the world is nigh thanks to the fact that every Londoner's eyes are glazed over with fear, but it just means that The Underground won't be operating tonight and tomorrow due to a dispute over new working hours for night Tubes.
Breathe everyone. IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.
But social media, not best known for its calm and measured approaches to situations like these, isn't going to take the Tube strike lying down. Many are outraged than an industrial action designed to cause disruption is, er, going to cause disruption.
Rather than spending their time working out handy alternative routes to work, plenty of Londoners wanted to make it clear that they could definitely drive a Tube just as adequately as any Tube driver. Wonder if they've got any spare time this evening?
A tube driver's day: Go > Stop > Open door > Close door [repeat]
Apparently doing that for a few more hours is too much to askJuly 7, 2015

There are hardworking people all over London trying to get to their jobs that pay fraction of tube driver wages, but they can't #TubeStrike— Jed (POST/POP) (@Jedshepherd) July 8, 2015
If you don't like the conditions of your job, quit. No right to hold London to ransom. Sack the lot of them. Wankers. #TubeStrike— Simon Risidor (@SimonRisidor) July 8, 2015
Bloody tube strike tomorrow, TFL workers should think themselves lucky they have jobs! If they don't like the terms - get another job!— Dani Thompson (@DaniTOfficial) July 7, 2015
Tube strike again #yawn. Give the jobs to people that appreciate having a job to support their families without wanting pay rises every week— Michael Harris (@mjyharris) July 8, 2015

#TubeStrike -get off your pedestal & stop holding the city hostage because your job isn't going your way! If you don't like it - get another— Gemma Penny (@gemma_penny) July 8, 2015
This union action is getting ridiculous. Get on with it or move on and make way for someone who wants the job #TubeStrike— Ellie Richards (@ellie_richards_) July 8, 2015
If the tube drivers don't 24 hour tube service, or are not up to the job, they should be replaced #TubeStrike— Mumtrepreneur (@Mumtrepreneur) July 8, 2015
Won't somebody think of the commuters?
Luckily, somebody did.
STAY STRONG FOLKS.
