Training FAIL

I just spotted this, from last year’s form:
Someone apparently got more traininf over the last 12 months: the typo has been corrected for this year’s form.

  1. Isn’t “Traininf” Information about trains? Do they still have those in Canada?

    And talking of a “Chair position” reminds me that it’s time I shifted my posterior by a few millimetres to the left, before my rear gets gangrene.

  2. Yes, we have trains! There’s approximately one passenger train per month, and takes around two weeks to get anywhere. However, the primary function of Canadian trains seems to be to spill chemicals into lakes and rivers.

    (I kid, I kid. I love the train. The first time I came to Vancouver was by train from Toronto – three days of sheer awesomeness! But we’d need a stupendously massive track and rolling stock upgrade before they’d get fast enough for people to use them on a regular basis, instead of flying).

    Now that you’ve mentioned “chair position”, I’m sorely tempted to complete the additional information section with “leaning forward makes me seem more interested in my trainees’ work, whereas leaning back makes me look more relaxed and approachable”. But I won’t.

    Ah yes, a major pet peeve of mine.

    I can’t remember if I tweeted this @ you, or someone else, so apologies if this is a repeat:

    Data are my favourite Star Trek character.

    Yes, you did, but it’s still funny 😀

    And this reminds me that I’ve complained to you about them there data before… sorry. 🙂
