At work Saterday, a fire alarm in the mall started to go off intermittently in the early afternoon. The funny thing was, no one stopped shopping. A couple people approached us and seemed mildly concerned, but for the most part, people ignored it. When the alarm went solid, that's get-the-fuck-out time, and one customer was angry she couldn't make a purchase because we were closing the doors and running for it. Shortly after it stopped, and they made an announcement that everything was fine. I wonder when panic would have set in, smoke? Flames?
I hope there's never a fire at the mall.
