False Alarm

The fire alarm just went off and I just successfully pretended that I knew what I was doing. The Fire Department was impressed and my boss actually gave me my first praise since I began this job. Aparently my handling of the false fire alarm was excellent. What they didn't see was the two-three minutes leading up to their arrival of me running around the building shutting doors and windows while trying to go through the fire alarm manual and remember what the hell I was supposed to do. None-the-less, I retract my previous statement about how boring this job is at night. May it henceforth remain as such.
