The fire alarm just went off in our building. “Beeewoop beeeewoop. Please evacuate. Beeewoop beeewooop Please evacuate.” We obediently went outside. There were only about 20 other residents and 8 restaurant employees loitering about. I know our building has 100 units and some of them are doubles or 2 bedrooms. Obviously, the monthly fire alarms in elementary school didn’t sink in. Anyway, it was a false alarm. Someone burned something in a kitchen. We set our smoke alarm off quite a bit (usually when Rob is cooking) and the fire department never comes. I don’t think the sprinklers went off, thank goodness. If you have a fire in your room, your sprinklers go off and do both of your neighbors. That would be a rude awakening in the night.
Ah, the joys of living in student housing.
