@fleafeet That sounded abrupt, sorry, but my much-needed nap was disrupted by a loud phone user on this afternoon’s train.

via TweetDeck in reply to fleafeet

@fleafeet Yes, and so you should have been. Not everyone is a 9-to-5 worker, and it’s also for people who just want some peace and quiet.

Ah. “We’re waiting on technical assistance,” apparently. The train has broken between its last run and now, therefore.

@MayneReport @AbrasiveTeapot Here we go. @GuardianAus linked to The Age. theguardian.com/australia-news… That’d be enough to account for it.

@MayneReport @AbrasiveTeapot Such things are self-reinforcing. Anything in the Top 5 list starts getting even more readers. It’s all BS.
