May we have your attention please....

I had just settled into my workday - finally got my computer booted up and was enjoying my second cup of coffee....
Atten !!!! Atten...sion!!
Yesssss????
May we have your ....
This is a safety announcement.....

Yeeeeessss???? So are we suppose to leave the building or what? Is it safer inside or out? C'mon man - we obviously should be doing something besides sitting here waiting for you to spit it out...

...water main break...boil alert...do not drink the water...do not use the tap water for coffee...

It was a SSCOON* moment througout the office.
And then from a someone who obviously had not had enough coffee yet...

What about the water in the toilets?


What about it? You don't usually drink that do you?

And they waited til you were on your second cup of coffee before they bothered to clue you in to that fact? Figures! Damn them all! (I suggest you might want to move your desk a few more spaces away from the person with the brilliant toilet water idea.)

Sincerely,
Cat Lady

P.S. Thanks for the SSCOON acronym. Hope you don't mind if I steal that to use in the future.

Geez...wouldn't ya know it'd be something so UNimportant. Where I work, a lot of us have gotten into the bad habit of ignoring unless they actually walk around and tell us to leave -- it's always something stupid! They need to stop crying wolf before something REALLY happens... ;)

Maybe they were worried about toilet-to bum splashage. It can happen...

WT, where we are there usually is a "real" fire drill once a month or so...a fire in the kitchen, maybe someone spilled something they shouldn't...we never really know if it is a drill or real and because there are radio pharmaceuticals in the building, we usually pay attention - especially if it is nice out and we want to get away from our desk for awhile:)

LiLu, never thought of the splashage:)
