Sleep is my Romeo

Sleep, sleep, wherefore art thou?

Come to me, I’ll give you a bow

To show you I’m grateful

Even offer a plateful

Of cookies and tea

For saving me.

    1. Try a women boss who runs a trucking company. She thinks she has to be a ball buster to get the respect of her male staff so she talks down to them, treats them with contempt and belittles them at every chance when all she has to do is treat them with the respect she wants back.

    2. It’s like, “I’ve finally gotten the power, so now you’re under my control”. I’ve had some good and bad. Worst was a smoker who’d leave for hours and come back by you making your eyes water from the smell.

    3. My worst was definitely the trucking company owner, but when we found out she treated her husband the same way as she treated us (and his money was the reason she ran the company) we realised it was not something we were going to change.

    4. I have trouble figuring out what you problem is too, although I still think it could relate to the number of nested posts any post is allowed to have given that you can still post to the site. I thought the default was 8 nested posts (i.e. 8 replies to any given post) but it’s a long time since I used the WP dashboard to do things.
      I have noticed they have changed the WP reader, which for me has created a conundrum

    5. I post comments from the alerts side panel in the WP-admin screen, which is similar to using the bell icon on the reader/stats screen. I presume every comments get posted.
      I do get emails when someone posts a comment but I rarely click on the link in the email.
      Maybe you problem has something to do with your two different username/linked addresses?

    6. When I used to have a ‘comment’ plugin loaded I had to authorise you on two different usernames/addresses. I never looked into it before dumping the plugin, but I assumed it was an issue between some data being different between the gravatar settings and the WP settings.
      I had a similar problem a few months back which I traced back to my gravatar settings being linked to my old WP account the problem I had was that gravatar wouldn’t update.

    7. You know in 25 years of tech support I find the only tech failures are those who refuse to listen because it’s to be defeatist. Even people ‘scared’ of breaking their computer can be shown simple steps but people with a defeatist attitude just refuse to do anything to help themselves. I have heard some pretty good excuses over the years though.

    8. Yeah and it’s hard in limited words but even old dogs can be taught if they approach things positively. Trust me I’ve taught 70+ year olds how to use computers. At nearly 80 I taught my grand father who hated using an electronic typewriter to use a computer and he wrote a book and four re-iusses of the book in in ten years before he died.

    9. Yeah a few things. I’m what american’s appear to call a sub contractor, here I call it a business owner. I work for myself and do whatever task I can. I’ve run my own businesses for more than 20 years and those business have been in a variety of industries. Essentially I go out and look for my own work, I pay my own medical and insurance and the companies I work for pay me a higher rate to work than they pay their payroll staff who get medical/insurance and superannuation paid for them. The difference being they pay me a higher rate for a shorter time and I have a ‘contract’ to do a specific job not just turning up daily from 9-5 until they sack me.

    10. Has it’s good and bad moments, working for different people in different jobs can be good, getting licenses and permits for so many industries can be a PITA but one downside is finding work can at times be hard and it sometimes you just don’t want to chase another job only to get knocked back.

    11. They all sucked at sometime 🙂
      Delivering bread was good for freebies, I didn’t pay for milk, bread, meat pretty much anything in a supermarket, but it sucked because of the hours and the boss.
      Putting up marquees was a great job except in the heat
      Working for the local council was by far the slackest job I had.
      Working on the farm was probably one of the better jobs because of the freedom, but we also had a financial interest in that job so there was a bit of financial stress with it.

    12. It’s not really any different here, the massive farms in the outback here are unaffordable and being bought up by Chinese owners who don’t care about anything but profit. While the smaller farms in regional areas struggle no matter what they do. Dairy is dropping in price and beef, lamb etc is not rising. Our crop farmers are suffering with a drought and if it’s not droughts it’s floods.
      We did however find the secret to beef farming, set up was expensive but once set up it was low maintenance farming, we had several properties we only visited twice a week and we only visited them to make sure the fences were still standing and the cows were still there.

    13. Nested replies:
      The original comment – The reply : 1 nested comment
      The original comment – The reply – the reply to the reply : 2 nested comments
      The original comment – The reply – The reply to the reply – The reply to the reply to the reply : 3 nested comments.
      There is a default setting in WP for ‘nest comments’ but I don’t know what happens to comments posted once that default is reached.

  1. No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub; ~ Hamlet
