RIP commuters of Melbourne, who were all simultaneously annoyed to death this afternoon when a computer error caused the entire rail network to grind to a halt. 

According to The Age, at the peak of the disruption punters were stuck on board trains for almost an hour, and warned not to try to force the doors open in order to sprint to freedom (and toilets).

The massive delays started at about 4pm, and drove a punishing Uber surge city-wide until well after the system was brought back online at around 5:15. 

It was cold. It was easily avoidable. It was numbingly, infuriatingly boring. And uh, yep, people are absolutely filthy about it.

May they rest in peace.
