Office Fire Drill
The office had a fire drill last week. We do that twice a year, maybe one too many some of us think. Disruption to routine is what everyone dislikes about a fire drill. Who doesn't. Having to trudge down and then back up again the flights of stairs is certainly no fun. Okay, we are just glad that the office is not at the upper floors of the 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers. Many people would be taking time-off, my guess.
To make it real, I once suggested we should also bring along our handbags and other stuff or files we are most likely to save in the event of a fire but so far no one has done that. That's the difference between a drill and reality, I guess. However, there were some of us who brought along their safety equipment they had on at the time.
