Alas, they won't allow me to have a nap time in work, so I guess I shall have to muddle along as best I can . . .

No nap time? What's wrong with them? It's mandatory down here, between 2.30 and 4.00PM.

That's the benefit of living in the world's largest retirement home I suppose

Hell, that's just for the employed, we all have to be in line with the people that have the bulk of the money.
The retirees nap from 11am til 4pm. See, they're up at 5 in the morning to go and get the special deals on breakfast between 6 and 7, and then they have to be back out to the restaurant before 5, when the dinner pricing takes affect. The bit in between is worthless, apart from mail time when they all have to cram to the mailbox areas in the mobile home, parks to see what the government or doctors have given them that day.

Well that sounds thoroughly depressing. I hope I don't end up like that when I'm old or I might just have my children put me down or something

I'm sure they won't have a problem with that.

Not in the least. I told my son to clean his room or his computer's gone the other day, and without batting an eyelid he turned round and informed me he would rip my throat out!

I warned him not to test me and made a move towards his plug, he shut up right quickly then

Sounds kind of perverted... no wonder he was quiet!

Shite. This is what happens when I don't proof read my posts.

We all know rightly I meant the plug for his computer

I'm sorry, but I'd have had him by his throat, up against the wall for that.

Man, that computer would have been gone and out of the house in a blink of an eye if any of my kids ever said that to me. Wow.

Under normal circumstances, I'd agree, and I've had him by the scruff for less, but I gave him a by ball this time, just because I knew he was just being a wee dick, as opposed to genuinely starting a fight.

You pick and choose your battles with our son and I wasn't about to get into a shouting match over that one when I had other things to do. Normally you have only to take a step into his room and he's immediately backing off with the 'sorry, sorry, I'll do it.' Had he continued, now that'd have been a different story.
