Training session.....

Now I'm not one to gripe......yeah right.......

I'm now at the end of a very irritating week of training. There is another week to go, more of the same. Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!

We've had a member of staff training the team who lacks patience.
Cast your eyes over the BBC website and the pages for a program called Little Britain. My trainer was like Marjorie Dawes.

Our training is simply sitting reading informative webpages all day. No, not like dear old AdultFriendFinder, this is finance etc.
Pages and pages of badly written documents, peppered with over-simplified examples.
My attention span is 20 minutes, perhaps 30 at best.
We all sit swigging red bull and strong black coffee in the hope of making it to lunch without falling asleep.

Training in the organisation used to be more sensible class-based activites, notes and discussion. No time to fall asleep. Easier to learn with. The change in policy saves the organisation the cost of printed training materials, training staff and pens.
Now all our trainer has to do is to watch us read. This must be even more boring than the reading.

The trainer sits and becomes a kind of Marjorie Dawes, extreme, bullying and kinda scary;

"Have you read it yet????"

"You're thinking too much dear."

Woe betide anyone who dares to think and asks a question.

She's married so I guess there's some poor soul that hears her say;

"Are you in me yet?"
"Are you finished yet"
"Cumon get moving, let me see those cheeks wiggle....."

OK, I'm starting to foam at the mouth and rant.....too much coffee and red bull.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.
