This is a question Training courses, seminars and conferences

Inspirational or a waste of precious slacking-off time? I once went on a buzzword bingo-laden training course which ended up with my being held at gunpoint in public. Could have gone better, to be honest. Tell us your tales from either side of the lectern

Health and safety lolz.
I was attending a compulsory electrical safety meeting after someone destroyed a forklift and some of his toes in a high voltage incident.

The safety guy was somewhat less than interesting, having that special droning voice that only H&S guys can possess and while most were dozing quietly I had to sit right at the front under his nose so instead of listening to the old bugger I took an interest in the stuff he'd written. And then I spot it.

He, pointing at the board, "...and I don't think there's anyone here who would disagree with that statement is there?"

At this point I sit up and say, "yes, I would"

"Oh really" returns Mr Interesting "and perhaps you'd like to tell us all why then?"

"Certainly", I'm grinning now at his glaring face and the room is awake and all ears, "Although I am very wary of electric shocks, I'm absolutely not afraid of elocution"

There's always one, and it's usually me.

I'd have done exactly the same thing.
