Commuters Forced To Find Alternative Ways To Be Late As Dublin Bus Strike Looms


COMMUTERS in Dublin are faced with the unenviable task of finding a service that matches Dublin Bus for the time spent stuck in traffic as drivers working for the service are set to strike.

With the 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th, 23rd and 24th of September earmarked as strike days, many residents in the capital who rely on Dublin Bus to get them into work some 40 minutes late now must find alternative means of transport.

“I’m thinking of buying a donkey that’s on the verge of death and riding that into town, should be just a fraction quicker than the bus,” one commuter shared with WWN.

“If it’s not the usual traffic, it’s the bus driver stopping at the wrong stop, or the stop not in service because of some random reason, but they forget to tell you that so inevitably you’re late for that meeting with your boss about how he’s sick of you being late,” the commuter added.

While many commuters have expressed little desire to learn about the industrial dispute, many have gone ahead to assume bus drivers are looking for a 400% pay increase and 4 months extra paid holidays on a tropical island of their choosing.

“You know, if it’s a particularly windy day I could maybe kite surf off buildings and cars and shit,” one student remarked as he contemplated life without that random bus that comes like once every hour and a half every second Wednesday.
