Leftwing Idiot, Fran and I were on a dull IT training course this morning. It’s a strange experience sitting in what feels like a classroom and having to listen to someone who sounds like a teacher talking about stuff that’s amazingly boring. We were all doing our best to pay attention and behave ourselves.
During a break I was boasting about having answered a question correctly and this annoyed Leftwing Idiot. He got his own back instantly in an unusual but very effective way: He asked me how I drive a car.
You may be wondering why this was such powerful payback. I’ll explain.
At some point in the past Leftwing Idiot worked out that if he said, ‘My name’s Touretteshero and I drive a car like this,’ I’d automatically make a very over excited driving action with both hands.
And this is exactly what I did this morning, with a drink in my hand.
Luckily the trainer didn’t see any of this, and it was me who got soaked and not the computer.
