(The fire alarm goes off in the building. When this happens, even as a drill, library employees are sent to each floor to make sure everyone’s evacuated. I am sent to the basement, where there are several group study rooms. One of the study rooms is still full of girls, calmly studying. I knock on the door, one answers, looking surprised.)

Me: The fire alarm is going off.

Girl: Oh, are we supposed to leave?

Me: /Yes/.

(Keep in mind that our basement is totally windowless, dry, and where all of our loan-able books are! If there had been a real fire, they’d have been in trouble.)
