I'm at work watching Sean's Show on 4OD right now.
Why am I watching Sean's Show? Why?

Some former colleagues of mine at a previous place of employment invented a game using a copy of Guess Who. They called it "Guess Whom" and involved asking questions about percieved psychological flaws rather than physical appearance.

For example; rather than ask "Does he have a big nose?", we would ask "Is he likely to blame all of his failings in life on his parents?"

Strangely, it still seemed to work.

This was in a call centre working nights where we also invented the game of "Muff Ball", where we would ball up the foam ear guards from discarded headsets to make a ball and play volleyball.

Chair Curling was good too; we got one of the more slightly built staff members of staff to sit on a chair and we would curl with him in the corridor.

My favourite game was "Embarrassing Kathy" (name changed to protect the innocent). "Kathy" was a 30 year old woman with a bubbly personality who was very popular. Fortunately for me and my amusment, she was also easily embarrassed by sexy-talk. Infact, when she was on a call, simply whispering "penis penis penis penis.." into her ear was enough to make her blush and giggle.

When I worked in the warehouse of my local Comet the other warehouse guy (Sean) and I used to build little forts out of washing machines. We once put one of the salesmen in a box for a Goodmans 32" TV and got as far as loading it into the customer's car before realising that unfortunately this one "had been damaged. Don't worry though sir, we've got another one in the back. Let me just take this back and I'll get you a new one." Good times.
