Verbal Diarrhea Diaries aka the crap that comes out of my mouth sometimes that surprises even me.
A little ego tripping twixt myself and a recent attendee of one of my classes with whom a fun rapport developed via email exchange.
Me: Weren’t you supposed to email me and remind me to send you this information?
Erstwhile Student: I had full faith in you that you would remember 😉 Thanks for a seriously awesome training day! You rock…but I’m sure you already knew that.
Me: * clutches pearls and gasps *
Why, it would be far too immodest of me to self-accolade in such an unseemly manner! I cannot openly concede the methodical superiority in which trainings held under my exacting tutelage are conducted. It would merely serve to further exemplify the depth of all other instructors lacking and that is unkind and unfair. Luckily, I’m not fair, kind or modest and the horn in which I personally toot is often of a decibel suitable to guide coastal ships in inclement weather. 😉
Besides, the class is only is good as the attendees, many thanks to you for being an equally awesome student.
Erstwhile Student: LOL! Oh, if only an eighth of my technical classes were even half as entertaining as yours. Thanks!
Note to my fellow trainers, instructors and teachers reading this. JUST KIDDING!!!! As I said ego tripping, but it is always wonderful to receive such emails acknowledging your work.
Let’s see how others are slicing through their Tuesday…
Slice of Life : Two Writing Teachers
Hey, I see nothing wrong in tooting our own horn. Sometimes it is all that makes others realize how great we are and how honored they should feel to know us. 🙂
So funny! I love the “clutching pearls” part. And yes, we should all toot our own horns now and then!
