“I don’t know your GP practice,” said my authoritative consultant, looking at my notes, “but this Dr Cresswell—he’s a good man, isn’t he?”

“Um, no,” I was forced to reply. “She’s a lady.”

There wasn’t a flicker of a reaction. “Yes,” he agreed smoothly.

He asked me what I did. “I work at Hansard,” I said.

“Ah yes. That’s that large manufacturing company, isn’t it?” he said cheerfully.

“No—” I began.

“No, of course,” he agreed instantly, without blinking, “it’s a scoping company.”

Realising that this was in danger of becoming some sort of sketch, I told him what I actually do for a living. “Yes, that’s right,” he agreed.

I know all consultants’ motto is “Never Wrong”, but this was still pretty special. Do they teach this technique at consultants’ evening classes?
