|04:41 pm - Another fire alarm?!?! wtf?!|
Ok, so, as you can tell, we had another fire alarm today. Great, just great. So I hoped over to the mall to grab something to eat thinking that by the time I get back it'd be over and everyone'd be in their rooms again so the elevators won't be clogged anymore.
Nope, I get back 50 minutes later, and I'm told that no, it's now the SECOND fire alarm...wtf. Ok, fine, so I wait with everyone outside (in the University Centre actually) and 10 minutes later they let us back in...only to tell us that the elevators aren't working and WE NEED TO TAKE THE STAIRS!!.....So began my trek up 18 floors of stairs.
Needless to say, I was 3/4 dead by the time I arrived. Even now my eyes are still dizzy and my lungs still burn from the climb. And as I'm typing this, the alarm is once again going off, this is the 3rd or 4th time now -_- But you know what, screw it, because I'm not climbing back down 18 flights of stairs after just coming up them. Plus I have an exam at 7pm tonight, this is fucked. If there is a fire, well sayonara everyone, I think the risk of me collapsing from climbing the stairs is greater than there is of an actual fire.
GODAMMIT SHUT THAT DAMN ALARM OFF ALREADY ARGH!!!!!! IT'S RINGING NON-STOP!!
Current Mood: pissed off
Ah finally, the alarm's off, that was a record 2 hrs man, TWO FREAKING HOURS OF RINGING IN MY EAR!
OMG, really! gah, and you had an exam two hours later! THAT'S NUTS! was someone pulling it or is it just some seriously twisted umm . . . alarm problem? eek!
Good luck on your exam, hope you did well!
Thanks, I hope I did well too XD
I think the alarm was just broken, which doesn't bode well for us XD Either that or someone decided us in Thompson needs to exercise so they pulled the alarm to make us go up and down the stairs. If that's the case they better be prepared to stare down the business end of my Katana >.
hehe, you know something like this happened @ my old high school. lesse . . . i was in civics class writing our FINAL EXAM, when the fire alarm goes off. Going out to the designated areas, waiting for the firemen then, getting teacher confirmation, 15-20mins. Then we all come back in and 5 mins later, IT GOES OFF!
It was good for us, we really didn't mind, it was summer and the other high school beside were all out, so there was this like huge fight and it kept on happening the whole day so class was cancelled and it was fun and to top it all off i aced the exam, hehe!
ah, good times *misty eyed*
It seemed to be yearly occurence too, just happened at different times is 'all! And we know for a fact a whole bunch of idiots were pulling the alarms (not that we minded of course!)
was that a false alarm or a real one?
18 flights of stairs? ;___________; poor girl *pats shoulder*
ironic, since you guys are doing exams and having to suffer with the alarms..
I think it was false, the alarm was probably busted >.< But seriously, if there was really a fire and we have to climb 18 flights of stairs to get out of the building, I think we're pretty much barbequed by the time we get to the 10th floor -_-
ahh I see.
=__=;; yes, that would true. But thats still alot of stairs... Since your a senior, is your level generally on the 18th floor or something? or is it merely for the exams?
ah no this was in my residence (where i live, like apartments for students, except it's on campus and cheaper).
