Home » Friday Flash 55 » Mandt


Maybe I’m an overachiever, or maybe it was just the day I had (being trained in de-escalation and physical management techniques), but I have two 55s here.  Maybe I just can’t follow rules.  Nah, couldn’t be.  I guess this is just for this week and next week since there won’t be a Flash 55 next week.  Be sure to head over to G-Man‘s for more of the most creative writing  in exactly 55 (or 110) words you could ever want.


Eight hours of inservice to get a piece of paper saying I passed Mandt training means sitting on my butt in a freezing cold room.  I get to cover the same material for the fourth time.  For tests, they tell you the answer you missed and you fix it, or we did a group test.


I think I have to admit I have a problem or maybe two.  First I had to pack up my laptop to take to an inservice so I could check blog comments on breaks.  Second, I had to pack up my laptop to take to an inservice while everyone else had Internet on their phones.

  1. Well, Teresa, rules are after all made to be “unfollowed” 🙂 [“broken” makes it sound too disobedient ;)]
    As for Mandt, phhhewww.. sounds like tedium!! And to add to it, cold rooms!! Brr….
    But yea, as a user of a phone with a data plan, I can tell you how much I appreciate it!!
    I can sooo relate to both your 55 (though not Mandt, and a coupla years back maybe)

  2. That Mandt stuff sounds boring…and a cold room would definitely not improve it! And I had to laugh at the laptop. I don’t own a cell phone (or a crackberry or any of that type of thing) so if I had to have internet access, I’d have to do the same thing with the laptop.

  3. lol! I don’t have internet on my phone either. It’s bad enough I have to text on those little buttons!
    Great 55 (‘s) lol

    Thanks for visiting me…and I laughed at your comment. I have a cop dad too!

  4. Loved your 110 Teresa!!!
    (Furls an eybrow at YOU)

    ((Just Kidding))

    But I did like your 2nd one a bit better.
    Thanks for playing, and please have a Kick Ass Week-End.

  5. It has gotten so bad at my workplace that they have banned all cell phones. You may use them, but only during lunch and on meal breaks. I can understand as I’ve fallen in love with Andy (my android) and have become addicted to my Sodoku app.

  6. I tend to break the rules. So join the rest of us. sorry you had to sit thru a ridiculous in-service. Hate sitting thru them – love teaching them (I give prizes and my objective is for people to learn “something”)

    happy weekend
    will hopefully see you on Monday
