    Nothing To Be Alarmed About

    | Chicago, IL, USA |

    (This happens while I’m working security for my college. I am a volunteer assisting with the fire drills during morning classes. I run into one of the faculty members while checking the 4th floor of a building to make sure it has been evacuated.)

    Faculty: *mouths something at me from the end of the hall*

    (Note that the alarms are blaring and it is impossible to hear anything unless it is yelled.)

    Me: *speaking at the top of my voice* “ Ma’am, you need to evacuate the building!”

    Faculty: *takes a couple steps closer to me, still obviously trying to say something, but very quietly*

    Me: “I’m sorry? I can’t hear you with the fire alarms going off!”

    (The faculty member continues trying to speak to me from across the hall until I finally walk right next to her and let her talk right into my ear.)

    Faculty: “Do those alarms mean that we have to leave?”

    Me: “Yes.”
