Of Fire Drill & Office Gossips

Yesterday we had a fire drill in the office, we had never had a fire drill in this place before so why now? Oh well, I supposed its required by law so we all know what to do when the real thing happens.

Our appointed fire warden Michelle brief us that when the drill starts we are to drop everything and proceed to the designated spot outside the building where we will be away from harm's way. So I'm all prepared, I took all my things ready including my camera coz who knows someone might come into the building when its empty and steal something! Not taking any chances!

After a few minutes Michelle told everyone the drill has started and we are to proceed as planned so very orderly we all walked out of the building in a calm manner. I wonder if it would be this orderly if the real thing happened! I'll be crying 'Help! Save Me! I don't wanna die!'.

The designated spot was about 150 meters away! I found out that we were not the only people doing the drill but the entire building block of different offices were required to participate as well! Lucky it was a nice day and the walk was kind of nice so when we got there everyone was just standing around gossiping among themselves. We all know that office gossips happen everyday and everywhere so I want to gossip also today!

These are the people from my office; the first one from the right is Alan the big kahuna of the joint we rent our office from, the one after him is Danny the quality controller I think. He dresses nicely everyday and workout in the gym too..I suspect he's a poof! (gay) The girl next to Danny in the white shirt is Kee, she's nice but she lives with her boyfriend who's an angmoh! The woman in the middle of the picture I can't remember her name but I heard she was a whore when a group of them went to LA on some buying trip! She flirted with everyone! Very hiaw one! And standing next to her is Effie, she's a machinist but I have no goss on her..sorry. That's all I got. Phew! I managed to kill some time standing here waiting for our next instruction.


15 minutes later we were told we could all go back in, what a waste of time! If the real fire comes we are supposed to know what to do now so we won't get roasted like pork on a spit!

At least you got out of doing work for a while - and the weather looks nice. England isn't such good weather for fire drills ;-)

Wuching said...

helen: no firefighters present at all lah! if i see one i'll send him over to u!

amanda: so i heard, is it true england is always overcast, cold & wet?

Amanda said...

Usually but it hasn't rained much at all this year but alas, it's snowing as we speak. I envy you being in Oz - I spent 7 months there 3 years ago and travelled all over. Absolutely loved Melbourne.
