Okay, Now I’m Getting Annoyed

Well, it happened again. The fire alarm went off at 12:30 AM, rousing the dorm and sending us all out in our PJs to wait for the system to be reset.

So why, you’re probably asking yourself, is Raptor up at 1:45 in the morning blogging about it? After all, he has class tomorrow, right?

Well, dear readers, the reason I’m up is because I was jolted out of bed by the fire alarm… at 1:30 AM! Yep, you read that right. The alarm went off twice tonight, and if history is any indication (I lived in this same dorm two years ago), I’d say it’s even money that the alarm goes off again at 2:30 (system’s been malfunctioning like this for 7+ years and they still haven’t fixed it!)

Either way, tomorrow is going to SUCK.

UPDATE, 9:20 AM: Are ya freakin’ kidding me? We just had our third fire alarm in less than 9 hours. This is ridiculous!!!!

  1. Sounds like you should find a fire axe, sledgehammer, or other large and or pointy tool and apply it with much force against the control panel. That’ll make them to replace it.

    • Actually, they solved the problem. Apparently some dust had gotten into one of the sensors (we have heat and particulate sensors) which tripped the alarm. They cleaned it out, and we’ve been alarm-free for over a month.
