Weekend courses that eat into precious lazing about and drinking time are bad enough, but a First Aid course last weekend was made worse by that one bloke who just won’t shut up.
“Jesus, every time the presenter drew a breath he had something to say. “Well I work in aged care.” We know mate. You’ve said it 10 times,” said exasperated course attendee, Kayleigh Ashton (26).
“Whether it was dealing with anaphylaxis, how to prevent spinal injuries, or asking where the toilet was, this bloke had something to say about everything. I just wanted to shake him and yell, “You’re making this go longer!”” said a frustrated, John Callaghan (39).
Unfortunately for John, and almost every other weekend course goer, such an action would have little effect, as this person seems to respawn at every course being run on a any given Saturday and/or Sunday.
If you are unsure if you are in fact this Terry Twat of a person, a simple test can be administered to help you – and the rest of us – out. If the course has finished and you find yourself alone with the instructor and you’re regaling them with yet another anecdote about your experience or work place – tag, you’re it.
