Where’s a Rocket when you need one?

I attended a training session the other day.

Going around the room clockwise, we had to announce our names and say a little about ourselves.

When it got to my turn I said:

I am Groot.

Unfortunately, having a sense of humour is not a prerequisite for attending a training course at Nottinghamshire County Council. Who’d have guessed?!!

      I’d have stuck a twig up their noses given half the chance. Ha ha.

    Here in the U.S. the term “crickets” (as in the room grew so quiet after the remark that only the crickets could be herd) comes to mind. But failure to maintain a working sense of humor is not an asset in public service. There are enough grumpy people at the motor vehicle bureau to met the government quota. (oops, I hear those damn crickets…)

      I wish you had been in the meeting! Crickets, tumbleweed and a clanging church bell. Maybe even Buddy Holly as well. Thanks for your comment. Made me laugh anyway.

        Took me a minute. Guitar drums and upright bass.
