Obviously not the footwear and to be fair not every trainer. Just trainers who want to train me at things I either already know how to do or have no relevence to my job.
Recently I've had to do a refresher course on 'manual handling'. Sadly this has nothing to do with breasts but rather how to pick up a box and move it. I'm a database admin, the heaviest box I picked up recently at work had a CD in it. The chances of me putting my back out lifting it are pretty slim.
I'm currently avoiding the 'complaints handling and customer service course' as I don't deal directly with customers.
The trainer tells me that 'the staff are my customers.' I told him to knob off.

points for saying 'knob off'. Not enough people use that phrase IMO.

We have a "Tone of voice" training session coming up.
I for one am really looking forward to it. More of a challenge, than anything.

Precisely this; though I was thinking more along the lines of that Rob Newman character from the Mary Whitehouse Experience afflicted with a sarcastic tone of voice.

Training in this manner is usually redundant. However I've always wanted to go on a race relations type course, I'm just too cowardly to make snippy comments to get on it.

I don't suppose
You're employed by a goverment department at all? They're rather good at pulling stuff like this.

Private company
I think we're out to prove that a private company can be just as irritating.
