We just had a fire drill. i got to wear my armband. AND take the register.
but no, just an armband, unfortunately. like a hi-vis version of the Home Guard.
The hat did not fit my freakishly large head.
This is the smaller one, it's been going on all week.
have you sent round the email yet that tells everyone how well/badly they performed on the exit of the building?
As those of you who were here today will be aware, we had a successful Fire Drill this morning, clearing the building in under 3 minutes. However, the Fire Marshals experienced problems in checking everyone off the signing in/out register as many names were very difficult to read and this part of the process therefore took longer than we would like. In the event of a real fire it is important we are able to inform the Fire Brigade quickly if anyone is still inside the building or not.
Please could you all ensure that you print your name when signing in to avoid this happening again. Block Capitals are easiest to read.
Also, the Fire Marshals had to instruct some staff/volunteers not to stop to pick up bags etc. Please could everyone make sure they just leave their possessions behind in future – that few extra seconds could be important in the event of a real fire.
Finally, thank you to everyone here today, and particularly the Fire Marshals, for making our first fire drill in [name of new building] a successful one.
even in a real fire, i'm picking up my bag no matter what anyone tells me.
cause he has to take the register.
I don't even know why. My bag was free, has a free bike lock in it, dirty underwear, and an empty box of Audley Harrison's Thai Spice soup in it. It is literally worth nothing. But I'd still pick it up.
I didn't mean Audley Harrison, I meant Ainsley Harriott.
I blame that other thread.
it would take me one second to pick up my bag as opposed to the 3 hours it would take to walk home and then the further hours sat on the doorstep as I can't get in because my keys are in my bag you fire marshall plank.
then there was a fire drill and garry wilkinson couldn't free himself and started crying
on a plane?
i think looking for a bag in the middle of a plane crash would be slightly harder than bending down to the left of my desk.
though it's more the 'take your shoes off' part. Wet. In the ocean. No shoes. Couldn't think of anything worse.
those I am taking.
but with tights on - stepping into the bathroom to do my make-up after my housemate has just showered. It's awful.
we've got a tiled bathroom... but i might buy a second bath-mat: there's one by the bath for stepping out of the shower, a pedestal round the loo for the morning wee... just need one by the sink for shaving (rather than having to move the shower one across)
anyhow - in what way is it any more rank than having carpet round the toilet?
but now i know that this isnt whats those mats are for, the point is moot...or is it?
Surely the carpet is ruined/stinking in a matter of weeks?
The house I grew up in had carpet in the bathroom. Once we moved out the idea seemed weird.
I am a germaphobe and a carpeted bathroom would just unleash all sorts of OCD obsessions in me.
i'll take lovely warm feet any day.
I think I will skip this thanks. I bet you're also the type who wears his shoes in the bathroom too?
Excuse me, has anyone seen the rest of the joke from my cracker? I think it flew under the table over there, no, not that way, to the left.
