Fire alarms!

So last night at 2:30 am someone decided to pull the fire alarm in my building.  I have never understood why people do this, Is it fun to have to sit outside in the cold at late hours of the night/early hours of the morning? Its not like they can be in the building either...I was not too bothered by this because I was jut about to go to sleep, but hadn't made it there yet. It was funny to go outside and see everyone evacuating wearing just blankets or without shoes on or no shirts etc. Once outside we had to wait for the fire department to search the whole building and make sure it was okay, as well as get everyone out who thought it was a good idea to stay inside! Did you know that it is a Felony to purposely not evacuate during a fire alarm? Obviously if you are trapped due to an actual fire than that is a different story. But this Felony also comes with a $500 charge! So next time you hear the fire alarm go off, as annoying as it is, make sure you get out!


  1. Sounds like an exciting night. I always like social situations like that, did you meet anyone you didn't know?
    Following this blog now.

    Nice blog.

  3. Set trip wires next to fire alarms! Blow their hands off before they even get to the lever! Hahahahaha.


  4. Our apartment I think it is ok. Our office is where we have pbm. You cant stay inside either unless you are deaf and you want to become one.
