Every now and then I get a specific kind of email. Not the “happy time pill” email. The “become a driving instructor and earn up to £30k” email. Remembering my driving lessons I used to give these emails a fraction of thought (before considering all the training I’d have to pay for and that that salary is really only acheivable if you’re giving lessons throughout the day, all day, every day).
However, having seen this sort of thing I think I’d be demanding a lot more money. Granted I’d be giving driving lessons in Kent, not Poland but I’m pretty sure there’s people that are just as bad here! How many times does this poor instructor have to grab at and tap his heart! It must be close to bursting with this pupil:
I saw this kicking around online pretty recently, and thought ‘that has to be a send-up.’
But, lo and behold, it is real! OMFG – that great anachronism – does also genuinely stand for the Official Meeting Facilities Guide. I’m hoping that this was established long before people went online and starting lol’ing and rofl’ing but my hats go off to them for sticking with it and actually managing to obtain such a url too…. then again; perhaps they’re fully aware of the coincidence and went with it anyway making full use of the accidental traffic.
Found this, no explanation just plenty of laugh, sharing it:
I have no idea what’s going on, if it’s a sniffer dog catching a whiff of something nasty, whether he’s caught mid-sneeze mid-growl or merely having a fit. All I know is it makes me laugh harder every time I see it
I remember my first driving lessons. Nervous, sweating palms, twitchy feet, hesitant movements and constant double checking of the roads before crawling along and that was just the driving instructor.
I kid, of course. Driving instructors are made of stronger stuff, and with due reason. While my driving lessons in Essex weren’t all that perilous – I’d had more than a few preparatory experiences behind the wheel – I saw and heard of many that were. And it’s not just in the UK too, as a stroll through youtube revealed:
This started off a bit slow and “meh” but once this guy whips out his mobile….
From what I remember of my driving lessons in Kent, it’s pretty rare to get a lesson in anything other than a driving school’s car and it’s clear looking at this why they want those duel controls so much.
I guess they’re a little more relaxed about the whole thing in the states. Which is odd considering how much of a rage these three fly into. Surely at some point they’d suss out that this dude’s driving pretty confidently for a learner… but then the Yanks are prone to a bit of self-importance and I’m sure an American driving instructor imagines people incapable of mastering a motor vehicle before their arrival.
