Not convinced - I feel foolish that I failed to notice that Geoff had shaved off his red, bushranger COVID-beard grown over 3 months (initially during semi-lockdown. I had teased him about how it was going to last until SA's restrictions were lifted...and he called my bluff)!

How long before you noticed?... just asking, not criticising!

Haha, only the next day. But I do feel like a bit of a loser lately more generally, not least because investing 3 months in training a colleague up to verify chemotherapy protocols resulted in them being almost, but not quite, competent at it. Which is not good enough, obviously - I feel like I've failed in my teaching, but do realise that it was probably more their mentality/mindset.

Stern look! I can understand your self reflection and sentiments - but the delivery of information in an appropriate manner must be received and utilised in an appropriate manner... and chemo protocols are just a little bit important!

A good analogy is learning to cook, I guess - most people can learn to follow a recipe ok, but not everyone understands the relative contribution of each ingredient to the whole dish's outcome, or has the ability to troubleshoot/substitute when one or more ingredients is unavailable/unsuitable. Plus, some people simply will never have the aptitude for figuring out what to do when there's no recipe to work from, and therefore they shouldn't be made to become chefs.
