In this thread, Cunctator takes umbrage at a fire drill.
You utter cunt.
You do not fuck with fire.
How do you know it’s a fire drill and not the real thing? Even if you’ve been told it’s a drill, how do you know that some arsewipe hasn’t taken the opportunity to set a real fire?
Consider how a fire officer might feel about you if he’d climbed all those steps - in full kit mind - to deal with a real fire only to be confronted by a group of people who say, “We ignored the alarm because we thought it was only a drill.” Consider also how much more difficult his job has now become. Consider also that you are in real danger.
Consider also that failure to respond to a fire alarm can endanger your colleagues. Fire wardens check their immediate areas to ensure that everyone is evacuating and if we (yes, I’m one) have to spend time telling you to fuck off than that’s time we’re not finding the person in danger or helping the disabled person to safety.
Consider also that the point of a drill is so that when the real thing happens, you know exactly what to do. Practice makes perfect.
Consider also that failure to evacuate can be classed as gross misconduct. You do like the money that your job brings you, don’t you?
