having just completed the ballbreaker that is "first aid in the workplace , 2 day refresher" and seeing the assortment of people on it , i feel the need to run through them , not as names , but as the same old "types" that have been on every course i've ever been on. 1. the flapper. this is the person who constantly has their nose in the manual , asks 700 questions an hour , of which 699 are irrelevent , but takes notes on EVERY answer "just in case it's on the test" and is nearly in tears on the day of said test , needing constant reassurance that they wont get the sack if they (she) fails. 2.the "two sh*ts" the opening question from the instructor on the course was "has anyone actually done any first aid since their course?" well 2 sh*ts nearly jumped off his chair to get in all the people he'd saved since his last course , then as we went through the course , for EVERY subject , 2 sh*ts (a london bus driver) had had someone on his bus suffering with it. "so this bloke gets on the bus with a railing through his head .....and on fire" 3.the "know - all" deliberately asks questions he/she knows the answers to , to make themselves look clever , then elaborates on the instructors answer and nods sagely as if to say "i already knew that". on this particular course , the know all was a teacher , and it was f*cking hysterical watching the cnut put his hand up to ask questions. 4.the walt. this one is particularly funny , as it's invariably an ex squaddie , i love to sit back and listen how for every given subject he's done something similair "over the water" and always ask if tourniquets are back in , like someone in your office is suddenly going to lose a leg , and occasionaly slips into the thousand yard stare as they show a video about some doris slipping off a step ladder , because it reminds him of his bezzer , who took a round for him. 5. the joker. funny for the first 5 minutes , then his brand of "fnarr fnarr" humour reaally gets on everyones t*ts and he doesn't realise that everyone is actually laughing AT the c-unt , not with him. 6.the f*ckwit how this dope actually passed the course , let alone got on the refresher is beyond everyone , including the instructors , doesn't appear to have the first grasp of breathing for themselves , let alone a casualty , and is master of the bone question. "so would you try and resuscitate if say....their head had been ripped off?" said with a completely straight face , and no hint of humour. can anyone elaborate on this list ? there must be more.
