Oh! I kinda liked Emma. I saw her on 'Secret Millionaire' and thought she seemed lovely.

PitysSake Sat 22-Aug-09 17:13:34

but that house was LUDICROUS

ABitBatty Sat 22-Aug-09 17:16:25

Well I have to agree at that. I scoffed at that mad woman's reaction to being asked to 'tea with Emma' or whatever it was called. She thought she was it didn't she! Silly bitch grin

I quite liked the lady with short blonde hair and glasses. I felt I could have gone to the pub with her.

Agreed the house was ludicrous.

I didn't see the last bit but found the A4e woman very patronising and very like Marjorie from 'A league of gentlemen'
And if she asked me to 'throw away my jeans' I'd of been there nekkid.

I understood the reasoning behind her wanting everyone to wear smarter clothes. But, hello, they are all on benefits! Did she just expect them to go out and buy a brand new wardrobe.

If I had to go on an A4e course I think I would get done GBH. She was bloody irritating.

Also, whilst I am ranting. Yes, it is a great idea to get peoples confidence up but wouldn't some actual training in practical stuff (typing, customer service, IT) have been a bit more bloody useful?

Is it on Ch4?

I think I can watch it online.

Could do with a laugh.

TheCrackFox Sat 22-Aug-09 18:04:35

Yes, it was on CH4. Please watch it tiredOFTHEDMemma - it is like finding a female David Brent. Comic genius.

I loved when she was announcing to the group that Emma was coming - all deep breaths and feverish excitement as though it Brad Pitt or someone coming to see them!!

TheCrackFox Sat 22-Aug-09 18:07:55

Maybe A4e is some type of cult?

PitysSake Sat 22-Aug-09 18:26:57

and her aphorisms ( is that the word?) were hilarious

she SO had a toilet roll dolly

Stinkyfeet Sat 22-Aug-09 18:43:23

That thought crossed my mind as well, CrackFox!

You couldn't make someone like her up if you tried.

She's a legend in her own mind.
