Swings and roundabouts, of course - or a case of the proverbial ill wind: I can't be the only member who has received tantalising ticket offers, but valid only for tomorrow (Monday) evening, presumably because the strikes are preventing others attending or have led to cancellations. However, I too am one of those marooned beyond the pale!
It took me 2 hours to get to work this morning and i had to set off at 6am to get to work at my usual 8am. A journey that takes 45 mins door to door on tube. Had to take 3 buses and the same home this evening. It's all about station staff. The station staff at my tube station just sit in a little box playing with their phones, letting people jump the barrier without paying and when you ask them why they allow it you get told "it's not my job to stop them" At 7am every day when the station is so full that we queue in the street to get into the ticket hall there is never a single member of staff to be found. Funny that!!! It's a great job. Excellent salary and benefits and you don't have to do anything. Sign me up. Rant over.....
I'm on the train into London. If I get lost between Kings Cross & Shaftesbury Avenue & am never heard of again then it was nice knowing (most of!) you & at least I'll have died for a good cause: theatregoing!

Some of the suggestions include:

A bit of lighthearted relief amidst the queues and delays!
