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

Fire Safety Training
Had to sit through a whole fucking day of some overpaid ex fireman telling us (working in a super clean creative office) how we shouldn't leave big piles of cardboard 'stacked up' and we should look for the exits 'any time we walk into a room'.

The highlight was him telling us that he was going to 'put us in a burning building to see how we'd cope!!11'. This was a (real) video of a band playing in a club and some shitty pyrotechnics setting the place on fire.

Us: Through the fire exits you could see in the video"
Him ".....No, not the way you came IN like EVERYONE does, but THROUGH THE FIRE EXITS!!"
Us: "Can we go back to work on the catalogue which desperately needs to go to the printers this evening please?"

I have seen that video!
did he also show you the one of Bradford football club burning down, I found that pretty harrowing to be honest.

Is that the Great White gig that ended ...somewhat badly?
The obvious safety lesson being, pyrotechnics in a small shithole of a club = bad idea.

Totally off topic but i love your sig. I have no qualms about carrying my (legal) gaystick around, but i am sure it would put off those undesirables carrying them :p
