Misuse of office equipment




This is a strobe light. The word F I R E must be there for a reason. Yes, the light is meant for urgency and emergency.
Everyone knows that if this light is blinking, then some serious attention must be given.
It was last seen blinking few months back for our fire drill. And yesterday....it blinked again.
The thought of evacuating the building, 11 floor down thru the staircase made me cursing...

"Damn........again?"

I was looking at my umbrella and jogging shoes....Should I bring them down as well? From past experience, the weather outside is a major problem...to me at least
Everyone was 1/2 panic. Should they evacuate or waite for instruction?
Suddenly, the PA system started to broadcast some noises..

"siiiyyyynncckkkkkgggqqqqqqqq........" that high frequency sound, when someone goes near to a microphone...
"Your attention please! Your attention please!
" This is a reminder for the Employee Forum. All Employees and Direct Hire Contractors are invited. Please be seated and Mandarin Hotel Grand Ballroom by 9.20 am"


Laaaaa........ buat announcement pasal employee forum...
Buat saspen jeeee....ingat ada bom ke apa ke...

But isn't that a misuse of tools? Ini dah kira melanggar etika kebombaan ni...
iQah mesti tau..dia kadet bomba..so does radin ..huahuahuahua..

The next time the strob light blinks, I dont think people will give serious attention anymore..
Hopefully, the misuse of this equipment will not become worse in future.

The sound like " Attention to Eileen. Attention to Ecah. Please meet me at the lobby for our lunch date today. Oh ya, by the way I'm the guy who sent the flowers this morning" or similar announcement is the last thing I wanna hear..

Sigh......

i think they should re-label the light. maybe not put 'fire' table to it.

tapikan..kat ofis aku kan.. kalo alarm berbunyi pun kitorang buat tak tau jer.. sbb selalu sgt berbunyi.. dah jadi mcm dlm citer dongeng 'the boy who cried wolf' :)
