People aren’t anywhere near as annoyed as we thought they’d be
We logged into Twitter this morning expecting a barrage of complaints on the #Tubestrike hashtag and were surprised to find we got anything but.
It was difficult to find a tweet from someone who was having a particularly bad time this morning.
In fact, it seems Londoners are way more resilient than we gave them credit for. Here are the tweets to prove it.

Leaving early due to #tubestrikemeant getting to work an hour early and having a fry up to pass the time. Curses!

Got one of those high speed trains to work from St. Pancras. No people in sight. Over an hour early for work. Gr8 #tubestrike

There’s something really awesome about seeing so many cyclists on the roads this morning. #tubestrike

So my journey to work (on a bus) begins. Obviously I am reliving my youth and sat at the back, with the cool kids. #tubestrike

Train has filled out a bit now. Still cool though. No hassle at all! #TubeStrike
