Another from Will and Guy

Resusci Annie

Before retiring from teaching Will qualified as a first aider in order to instruct CPR [Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation] to Year 10 students, with the help of Surrey Ambulance Service, as part of the PHSE syllabus.

Classes always used the mannequin known to all as "Resusci Annie". The particular model used by Will's students was legless in order to store it in a carrying case.

Youngsters used to practise on Annie in groups in preparation for their examinations.

Philip, following Will's teaching knelt beside Resusci Anne and shook her asking, "Are you alright?". He then put his ear over the mouth to see if the dummy was breathing, all correct procedure.

Philip then turned to Will and said with a straight face, "Sir, she says she can't feel her legs."
Fishing Trip
Michael and Peter went on a fishing trip. They hired all the equipment: the reels, the rods, bait, wading boots, rowing boat, the car and even a log cabin in the woods. No expense was spared for their yearly expedition.

On the first day they went fishing they didn't catch a thing. The same thing happened on the second day, and on the third day. It continued like this until finally, on the last day of their vacation, Michael caught a fish.

As they're driving home they're really depressed. Peter turns to his friend, Michael, and says, "Do you realise that this one pathetic fish we have caught cost us £900?"

Michael replies with a jaundiced smile, " Crikey, it's a good thing we didn't catch any more!"

Having learned CPR on a legless Resusci Annie, I loved Phillip"s quip. Wish I had thought of that.

I especially loved that fish story. My hubby and son went fishing the other day. My son caught one itty bitty fish. No one else even got one bite! (grin)

The first aide was so funny and I also liked the fish story.
