Burning Question

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, Jun 13, 2014 at 9:41 AM

Fire Alarms that go off when no fire is happening. Loud, screeching head-splitting squeels and flashing lights. And then the days of designated testing. Which is more of this nauseating, painfully loud alarm system. But, when there was visible smoke in the building main entry atrium... NO ALARM GOES OFF. When their is an actual fire in the adjacent head shop, NO ALARM GOES OFF. When somebody in the building leaves popcorn in the microwave for 10 minutes.... Plenty of acrid, choking smoke BUT NO ALARM. So, I ask... What the fuck is the alarm doing except making me never, ever believe it's going to save me from an actual fire? Dick move, false alarm fuckers.
