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

Tomorrow I shall be attending a first aid refresher training course
I hope to god a different trainer is in attendance to the one who presided over us last year.

Spent about an hour pratting about with Resuci Annie trying to slip in a bit of smooth criminal without the trainer noticing "Annie are you ok? Can you tell us, that you're ok, Annie?" and attempting to blow a rescue breath into her fake lungs to elicit a PARP! noise from the dummies mouth (hilarious).

After this it was time to practice putting an 'unconcious' patient in the recovery position. Now, I was paired up with Gary, about 6ft and about 15 stone. Not easy to manouvre when he's, ahem, limp.

So here I was, huffing and straining to get him to roll over, I uttered the words "Oof, he's too big" much to the amusement of the others, the trainer told me to try again, this time, success. I was red, panting with the effort but victorous. "YES!" sez I, Gary opened his eyes, went very red and then I caught sight of the source of his embarrassment. My shirt had come unbuttoned and I was dangling my cleavage in his face.

I shot off tot he other side of the room and buttoned myself up, I don't think I've ever moved so fast. The rest of the class were in hysterics over my carry on campingesque flash.

Tomorrow I think I shall wear a rollneck, especially as Gary is on the course again too....

I like breasts.

There's certainly no such thing as too many or too often.

there is too many.

Two would seem about right.

Unless you're from Norfolk, maybe.

Does anyone else get the giggles when they are simulating CPR on a Resusci Annie and it makes a blow off noise, or is it just me?

Can't say I've ever
done it, but generally speaking anything that makes a blow off noise will make me laugh, so I'm with you in spirit.

I've never used them for their proper purpose
but there's about five of them in pieces in my shed for zombie prop purposes
