Training at Work

So, 2 hours wasted from my day doing some "Foundation Fire Awareness for Employees" course and then I got roped into doing "Foundation Awareness for Designate Fire Marshall's".

Now, I know that this "Foundation Awareness for Designate Fire Marshall's" is incorrectly written. I have written it as it is on the test paper.

It should be Foundation Awareness for Designated (put the d in) Fire Marshalls (no apostrophe).

Or... I could just be completely wrong. I just wanted to moan about something completely random as I am sick of hearing about the Credit Crunch, Recessions, Madonna & Guy's Divorce, Victoria & David's Marital Struggles, the rain, petrol prices and inflation.

For the money that it cost, I would expect to have correctly spelt test papers.

I got top marks anyhow. It was far too easy.

The only thing that I learnt was that a CO2 fire extinguisher puts a fire out by freezing it and if you hold the extinguisher incorrectly, your hands will freeze and stick to the extinguisher.

Oh, I also learnt that it only took 3 minutes for the fire to spread at Bradford City Football Ground in 1985.

That was it. That is all I learnt from 2 hours. Everything else discussed was purely common sense. (however some of the others on the course obviously have no common sense whatsoever).

And I also learnt that it is colder in the training room than it is in my office.

Daisy is spending the day at my Mum & Dad's after being an absolute sod all night long. I just don't know what is up with her. Perhaps I should change her food. Give her a nightcap of hot milk, whiskey and honey. Give her sedatives. Have her voice box removed! I have to keep Daisy and Cookie separated when we can't stop Cookie from trying to suck milk out of her, if I lock Cookie up, she launches herself at the door and meows really loud. She doesn't like being without someone to cuddle up to. I took Daisy for a walk at 2am this morning to try to knacker her out. Its just not working.

Anyway. Got lots of stuff to do at work.

Blogger is better than AOHELL.

Oh God, your animals, what pests they are, have you had them castrated? I've heard it calms things down. I dunno, I've never had dogs. And cats, well cats are cats. That course sounds like fun, no doubt I'll have a few of them where I'm going, I'm off in a bit, nervous I am, silly I am xx

I know what you mean about the fire course-if I see the film of the Bradford fire once more I could narate it blindfold. Did they explain the triangle of fire to you! In reality though it is a serious subject which could have life threatning possibilities.
As for your animals afraid I cant offer any suggestions-all the dogs I have owned have been male and dare I say it trouble free!

Do you now know how to start a fire and make it look like an accident?
Because Lynbo knows some house that need torching!
