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

Mate Of Mine
Went on a training course at some flash hotel. At the end of the first day they were told that, for homework, they had to persuade some strangers that they were something they weren't. Act, or lie of you will.

So next morning comes and the course trainer starts asking people what their lie was. Ken, my mate stood up:

"I spent two hours in the lift persuading people that I was the lift operator. I did quite well in tips"

Small round of applause. Then everyone else stood up and gave their stories until there was a commotion at the back. The course pisshead had just arrived. Bloodshot eyes, stinking of stale booze, wearing a rumpled suit and couple of lovebites peeping over his shirt collar.

"And what was your successful lie last night" sneered the course tutor.

"I persuaded the barmaid that I wasn't married and I was a nice guy......"
