So, I'm at work tonight, callin folks, asking them about their energy consumption, when all of a sudden the fire alarms start going off! So we all file outside, in the pouring fuck down rain, to our meeting place across the parking lot and wait for the fire trucks to show up. They figure out the problem, shut off the alarms, give the all-clear, and we all go back inside. This process took about twenty minutes or so.
Back inside we're all granted a 15-minute break to dry off and recuperate, and then we all get back on the phones.
A little over an hour later, it happens AGAIN. Thankfully it's no longer raining, but we all still go outside to the meeting place and hang out, the firemen come again, fix the problem again, and then back in we go.
The problem? Rain water was dripping inside of the fire alarm control box on the outside of the building, making contact with the wires, and short-circuiting the system, therefore causing the alarms to go off. In order to circumvent this problem the firemen turned the entire system off the second time they were there. Because of that, since there'd be no way to tell if there actually was a fire somewhere in the building, it was decided that we'd get to go home an hour early tonight.
So I came home and watched Raw, since I was scheduled to leave work at 8 anyway.
Just thought I'd share...
