Juneathon – Day 9

Todays’ exercise was going to be ‘leg free’ especially after yesterday floppy foot incident, however due to the members of the RMT Union deciding that despite the fact that we’re in the middle of a recession and that people are losing their jobs left right and centre and that those that do have jobs are having to fight tooth and nail to keep them they with their ‘not being selfish at all’ reasoning want a pay rise so they’ve gone on strike to get one.  Meanwhile, all of London comes to a standstill as there are now no tubes running and every bus stop has at least 893 people at it waiting for a bus.  So walking home seemed easier.  Therefore 7.65km goes towards todays Juneathon.  Unless there is some kind of miracle at the bus stop in the morning, I have a sneeky feeling that walking into work and home again may constitute tomorrows Juneathon activity too.  And the day after.  Grrrrrrrrrrr.

  1. Are they all on strike? That’s definitely one thing I don’t miss about London. I rarely got the tube there as I lived nearer an overground station but obviously that was full of tube people when there was a strike.

  2. Luckily they’re not all on strike – just the main big union… This morning seems a bit better, some tubes are running and BoJo has added an extra 100 busses to the major routes. It’s still chaos though… and all the tube people are pushing and elbowing their way on the busses because they have no manners (unlike bus people who actually wait in line most of the time) Be thankful you only have cars, cows and sheep to worry about in the country!

  3. There was a tube strike once when I worked near Oxford Street. People were actually pulling people off the bus when they were trying to get on. Scary!
