Dear Londoners, here's the thing: you need to shut up about just how terrible Loondon is
Ever heard of other cities our there? Manchester? Liverpool? Birmingham? No one’s making you stay, bub.
As well as how great it is
Sure, it’s pretty rad. But it ain’t *that* great, ok?
The Tube is ALWAYS crowded on your daily commute to work - get over it
There are over 8.6 million people living in the capital. You know what you’re getting yourself in to.
Yes, rent prices are ridiculous
Y’all act as if it was just London-specific. It’s happening all over the world.
Yes, Shoreditch is being gentrified
The ones complaining are mostly the ones gentrifying it in the first place. Looking at you, middle class 20-somethings.
Just shut up about Shoreditch in general
Sorry, but let’s move on.
Yes, everything's far away
Greater London covers approximately 1,572 km2. So OF COURSE everything is far away. What are you even doing here there if it bothers you so much?
And everybody's unfriendly
Nothing will change if you accept people’s quiet stares and unwillingness to chat.
Waiting five minutes for the next bus/train/tube ISN'T THAT BAD
Try living somewhere where the busses run every 3h. Now sit down, please.
Overpriced and overcomplicated. That is all.
The tube costs what it costs for a reason
Have you ever been to the NYC subway? Sure, a ride costs only $1, but the state of it? Appalling. The money goes to keeping the place nice and clean. Because yes, in comparison to other cities around the world, it is clean.
If only you lived in a city that had many alternative ways of getting around. Oh, wait…
They spend approximately £15 million per year and are the reason why many businesses are booming in the capital. Just avoid Central if you hate them so much.
Sure, it's the seventh circle of hell, but unless you work there, why are you spending so much time there?
And finally, how some people stand on the left side of the escalators
Tell us, what exactly do you do with those additional 30 seconds you gain by walking up the escalators?
