Today I had to stand outside my flat waiting for the fire brigade to show up like I was back in first year of uni. There were a lot of fire drills back then. I don’t think this one was a drill, though. Eventually, after everyone in the building was stood outside for a while, we decided to call the fire department. Because that made sense.
They came, struggled to park, and then went to investigate, and discovered someone on the floor above me had whacked the break glass/fire alarm by “accident”. Our money was on the family who, as soon as the fire alarm started, immediately ran downstairs, jumped in their car, and drove off. That was suspicious behaviour, come to think of it.
Until tomorrow, eventually, we were allowed back in.
