I was in the office today working through a client's training folder and exclaimed at the top of my voice: "Now! THAT'S a quality plastic wallet!" (or polypocket as I call them).

I turned to a colleague and said: "I've been doing this job FAR too long!"

Have YOU had any nerdy training moments like that?! I'm relying on you all to finish the sentence! You know you've been a trainer for a long time when...

Ade.

You know you've been a trainer for a long time when you know what an OHP is.

You know you've been a trainer for a long time when...you get excited at a brand new, unopened pack of dry white board marker pens!

...you have Mr. Sketch markers stashed around your house, your car, in your briefcase, and when you Info Map your holiday party plans.

Sorry, haven't been on here in a while. Robber eggs are for balancing on top of paper towers (real eggs can mess the carpet up). Rubber ones are quite nice to throw at people to see if they're paying attention or not! ;-)

yeah, I have no idea about the Rubber Eggs things either but my addition is that you know etc when you are still printing handouts on actual paper.

You know when you've been a trainer for ages when you ....... trip over those 'well trodden' sentences you use when introducing yourself and your background
