    On a separate not, (or "sidebar" as a well known sexagenarian and self-proclaimed sex deity often described it), has anyone had any luck in writing their signature with any degree of accuracy and familiarity on those electronic devices that delivery drivers use to record acceptance of delivery?

    I've found it virtually impossible to sign them in a way that anyone would recognise as being a representation of my signature. I suspect the driver would be able to do a better job of it by forging my signature.

    If like me you struggle with them, what's the bleedin' point?

    I've looked up that term and having seen the posts from the admins on this subject in the Help forums I am extremely tempted to e-mail them with a nomination for you Grumpydogwoman (including the "permalinks" (?) to certain posts on this thread as part of the supporting evidence)

    ..although the adverts would have to be aimed at the Forum reader demographic wouldn't they?

    More marking again this weekend? Get hammered for less at BARGAIN BOOZE.

    I don't find them to be much of a problem.
    But I am, as part of my current role, testing whether practice on a similar device (used by the Department of Work & Pensions for claimants) can be part of a support package for digital training.
    Which means I have spent a lot of time testing how best to use them

    I do agree and although , like gdw, i definitely want to be offered one, i don't know what I'd do with it. What may sound pithy and a propos today may seem tedious and self serving later, depending on my mood.

    I was amused by a comment I read about Marks and Spencer's Christmas campaign a few years ago where they proclaimed "It wouldn't be Christmas without M&S" The comment observed "No, it would be Chrita, wouldn't it?

    Could anyone advertise in our signature space if they paid enough?

    @magic surf bus I think the tes demographic really needs this. (sadly)

    Is the solicitor the chap in the suit?

    At his age I would think he is. Teachers don't make it alive into their 50s any longer, do they?

    (He's frightfully short.)

    That's a rash conclusion. He might be having this discussion in a primary school classroom and been forced to sit on one of the kids' chairs like parents have to on open days.

    Good point. I've had to have a 'comfort break' on one of those very cute little toilets in a primary school. Not so cute when perched on one...

    :eek: I think you may have misunderstood . . .analogy: imagine you are not YET allowed to have the shiny, new children's toy that some other adults do have and appear to be taking seriously . . the toy is given out conditionally by 'parents' for good behaviour. . . you don't actually want the toy at all, but, joy of all joys, you can play at something too; at 'Let's Pretend' . . the entire situation is ripe for mickey-taking . . . . . do I need to say more?

    I'm not surprised!! Like peeing into a pint glass standing up.
