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

I was on "diversity training" as part of the preamble for a job with Arriva Trains
The bloke made it clear that he couldn't abide any sort of diversity-unfriendly behaviour. He explained that one of his children had some sort of mental deficiency (possibly a spaz or maybe a mong, I forget the details).

Anyway, we then had to come up with as many derogatory words for spackers as we could think of. Wanting to be seen to take part, I volunteered a couple of minor slurs, but held back somewhat.

I think it was the trainer who then told us about one term he'd heard, one that made him utterly incandescent with vicarious spaz-rage. It was, he told us whilst getting visibly irate, “window-licker”.

I'm not sure how I managed to keep a straight face.

How could he not be?
The video is fun too.

I have never had to hold my tongue so hard
Telling him about the wonders of Richard D James was the first thing into my mind. Well, second after the internal guffawing that got harder to stifle at the same rate as his face reddened with fury.

I hope you held your tongue
by pushing it into your bottom lip.

A bit soft around the eyes
My friend refers to mongs as such. Cracks me up every time.

That'll be "diversity"
in the sense of "divergence from the published timetable, usually by about an hour or so". Dear old Arriva.
