“How do you make an F?”
“It’s the first letter of fremontodendron.”
But at least he can spell ‘blatant’.
Another person having trouble with letters at her first aid training is Hannah.
As always there's some total eejit that says something stupid and, as always, it's me who says it. We were given several letters. G C L I P S. We were told they were the 1st letter to several words that were all different types of blood-loss wounds. He gave us the answer to G (graze) and told us to figure out the rest. We worked in groups and each group got the same answers. We all got all but one right. We all thought C was for cut but when the guy said they were all kinds of cuts and what else could it be, I yelled out,
"Sorry, what?" yer fella says.
"Castration", says I, "You know when your hand is cut off or something.''
"You mean amputation Hannah?" he says with a smile.
"Aye that's what I mean."
''Castration's something else Hannah but we'll chat about that later" he says, still smiling, everyone laughing.
"Aye but it's still a blood-loss wound." says I, going bright red.
