Ouch... fire alarm...

Postby Gigafrost » Thu Jan 26, 2006 9:02 pm

My head hurts pretty bad now. It was sort of mellowly maybe-hurting... and then the fire alarm went off. I don't know when they stopped using the loudly ringing alarm-clock-bell stuff that you see in movies (still?) but these are loud. And painful. My head hurts so much now...

They turned it off, everybody went back in. It's gone off (for one or two screeches) three more times. My desk is right next to one. Ouch.

If I were to describe the sound, it's like a cricket, except loud like somebody screaming in your ear, maybe.

I think I know what you mean....some college fire bells were very quiet while others were so loud walking past them at about 2 or 3 meters was a real ear splitter.

Any ideas as to why it went off?

Maybe a bug in the system. It only went off 5 times. Of course, it gave us 3-4 hours before going off the last time... and the last time it went off there wasn't somebody in place to turn it off (the 2nd-4th time it only went off for one or two screeches.) When it went off the 5th time I was getting ready to go home, and the other co-worker who was going to work a little longer gave up and left then too.

It sucked.

Eek. That sucks, Giga. Sorry.


The one outside my bedroom for the apartment has a glitch. It goes off several times a week, usually at all hours of the morning. xx;

It's okay. I've gotten over it. But I'd be very... alarmed... if it happened at the new place...
