Life

Emergency! Emergency!

An otherwise uninspiring day at work was brightened by the approach of three shiny red fire engines, sirens blaring.

Where are they heading?
Looks like they're stopping.
Which building?
Um... Ours.
But... If there's a fire in our building, shouldn't there be -
BEEEP! BEEEEP! BEEEEEEP! BEEEEEEEEP!!
- an alarm?

Uh-oh. I grabbed my apple turnover and last night's backup tape, and headed downstairs. Where we milled about for ten minutes before the firepersons came back out and let us go back to work.

So the building completely failed to burn down, but the fire engines were particularly shiny.

2 We used to get the ambulance at our building like clockwork after every three-day weekend. We had a binge-drinking alcoholic with hepatitis who'd manage to make it to work before going into seizures. Every. Damn. Time. He finally died, poor soul.

3 Were all of the company mice safely evacuated? You know how easily they get crushed in the mad rush to the exits?
