    An update: You know things are bad at work when.....

    There is a fire drill and your department isn't allowed to participate because you have to stay on the phone to answer customer calls!!!!!!! I told the supervisor "What do you think would happen if there was a real fire, and someone in our department got hurt?" What do you think the families and friends would say when you told them that our department didn't participate in the fire drills?" The response was "It would be pretty bad, probably"... Wow.

    My previous boss used to work at Texas Instruments in an area that was doing physical research with chemicals and stuff. They announced that there would be a fire drill one day. The alarm went off and one of the employees was in the middle of an experiment, and decided to finish it. Unfortunately, the fire system flooded the room with nitrogen. The employee, who reported directly to that boss, died.

    Lessons:
    1) When designing the fire system, don't automate stuff that could kill people.
    2) If you have to have a safety feature that could kill people, make sure that everybody is aware of it.
    3) When the fire alarm goes off, clear the building. Period. We are each responsible for our own safety.

    I'm sure you've got me figured out enough to know I already have.
