I have been attending an anxiety management course in the hospital. The course is run by a fabulous nurse. She has been great, proffessional, compassionate, helpful and she also happens to have a cracking sense of humour. One suggestion she made for coping with anxiety is to distract yourself by making lists. For example dream dinner party.
I have found this tool very useful. So this weekend she suggested I make lists of things people shouldn’t say. So I bring you “Things A … Shouldn’t Say”
Things a pilot should never say ..
“Our inboard refreshment trolley includes a wide range of alcoholic drinks, the quality of which I can personally vouch for, hic”
“This is the first time I’ve ever flown a real plane, woohoo”
Things a parent should never say….
“I’m not a big fan of children”
“I find brandy to be a fantastic sleep aid, keeps the kids asleep for hours”
“What time does school end again (at 10pm)”
Things a surgeon should never say ..
“Has anyone seen my scalpel ?”
Things a trapeze artist should never say …
“Look no hands!”
Things David Cameron shouldn’t say…
Opens mouth “…”
With that I open it up to you my readers. Make me laugh , with things a … should never say.
Things a friend of Ella’s should never say – “urgh purple!”
Absolutely ! Purple should never be slated.

Lol, good one.
Things a small child should never say: “But mummy it’s ALMOST 6am. Time to get up!”
Absolutely , anything earlier than 6.30 is still night !
At an interview for a customer service advisor post I said I couldn’t lie to people in order to sell something to them. The interviewer said I would have got the position had I not said that…..
I realise now that working is not possible for me and these environments were most definitely triggering. 🙁
