London Fricking Underground/TfL

Recommended Posts

Not that many people here that will appreciate it (or maybe there are). But, the pure fricking hatred that this company can generate from me when you've had a crappy day at work, and you are faced with delay after delay after bloody delay (as well as the same in the morning). URRRRHH!....

That Victoria line smacks of British imperialist racism - surprised it has not been renamed something more culturally enriching.

Don't hold your breath. It took them 127 years rename the Piccaninny Line the Piccadilly.

I guess this is due to the overspill from the Hitachi train test ripping down the lines last night, they are going to get properly fined! We are working on a site next to that line and we were told if a driver spots something on the line that makes him stop the train, even a bit of film glinting in the sun on the rail, it's £1M a pop. Hope you get home soon though, it's a bastard.

I think you might have to fight "the unions" on that one.

There's no danger of that particular event contaminating the delays I was complaining about, just pure underground general not giving a shit attitude being "in play".

If the underground employees had to pay as much as the general public using "the service" have to, I'm confident the service would either improve or, more likely, implode.

Service is only for folk fortunate in life with wealth to pay for it.

The majority have to put up with poor service from public transport, utilities due to lack of choice.

Fair enough!

The use of the word "service" from me here is probably just from being force fed it in terminology on a day to day basis. You're (I am) just blinded to it being meaningful from the frequency of it's use.

Can't disagree with that. Although, just because there's a lack of choice it shouldn't mean that there's a lack of (service) quality.
