I have sat cross legged on the floor, put my thumbs together and said "Ohmmm" several times.
Then I drank some voddy and repeated the exercise.....
My li'l bro Sime is quite right. I switched to DILLIGAF II to chill not rant away and off I went again...ranting away.
Daft old bugger.
As a Driving Instructor my car is like the bloody United Nations - not entirely surprising given I live near Heathrow Airport I suppose.
Ukranian, Bulgarian, Indian, Sri Lankan, Spanish, Kenyan, Vietnamese, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Argentinian, Brazilian, Somalian.......and that's the students past and present I can bring to mind immediately...oh...yeah...a few English as well...;-)
I rapidly reached the conclusion that learning to drive and indeed, becoming a good driver is not related in any way shape or form to intelligence.
One of my students believed, and, as far as I know, still believes that the 30 odd sheep we saw grazing on a steep hill on one of the Staines Reservoir's all facing the same way were doing so as they'd been specially bred with their right legs shorter than their left in order to graze on steep inclines - turning around would result in them falling over and rolling down the hill.
I didn't actually think she'd entirely believed me until we saw a dozen or so the next driving lesson facing the opposite way.
"Oh look Dinners! They've got their left legs shorter!" she exclaimed excitedly.....
"Bugger the sheep...watch where you're going!"......I think I must be evil....;-)
Passing your Driving Test is a bloody lottery you know.
My best student by far took 3 bloody goes!!!
"You drive better than me" said the Examiner.
"I've passed then?" she asked
"Unfortunately not" he replied.
Uh?......Don't ask me...I'm just more qualified than the Examiner...he/she just asseses on the day....I train them for the day from scratch.
"You drive better than me but you've failed"......now explain that one to me!!!
Still, I've never been happier in my life than I am now - at least as far as a job goes.
"What's this £70?" I asked a student
"Well I forgot to pay you for the last 2 lessons so here it is"
I had no idea - it drives Caz crazy....."Dinners!!!! You're meant to be a businessman now!!!"
"It's more a vocation love"
"Er...any ideas on a vacation?"
