I thought this was pretty funny. Hope you all enjoy.
Let me preface this story by saying that the events described did indeed take place, and where quite embarrassing. This all happened last night at around 10:20.
As some of you may know, I currently am attending college, so I am living in the dorms on campus. I was working out last night until 10, came back to my room, and naturally I needed to take a shower. Like most dorms, there aren't bathrooms connected to the rooms, so I had to use the bathroom on our floor. I am in the middle of my shower when someone comes into the bathroom and says, "Whoever is taking a shower, the fire alarms are going off and we need to evacuate the building immediately." I don't get flustered, I merely get all the soap off of me and start to walk out of the bathroom (I guess I didn't hear the alarms because I had the radio too loud). As I get into the hallway, I am surprised to find my Resident Assistant waiting for me. He says, "We need to get out of the building."................
Let me stop at this point to say a few things. For starters, over the weekend someone thought it would be hilarious to pull the fire alarm at 4:00 A.M. on Saturday, and again on Sunday morning (TWICE IN ONE DAY!!). The fire alarm also went off once last week on Thursday. I guess what I am saying is that everyone really didn't care about the dangers of a fire after the number of false alarms.
..............Back to the story. I said,"Alright, I am going to run to room and put on some clothes. I will be out in a second." To which my R.A. replied, "No, we need to leave right now..." Now, I don't want to say that I was being the most friendly toned individual, but he couldn't honestly expect me to go outside without any clothes, so being a little annoyed I responded, "Seriously David, there is no way I am going to go outside like this. It will take me three seconds. You know there isn't a fire." I started to walk towards my room when he said,"We need to leave, and if you don't come out with me right now I am going to make sure you get fined."
I couldn't really argue with him, and I could see that he was not going to budge, so I sucked it up and followed him out of the building. So there I was, in front of almost every person in our building, standing there with only a towel around my waist and a pair of Crocs on my feet.... Needless to say, I took a lot of heat from my buddies on my floor. Even my roommate was laughing profusely at my predicament. I had to stand outside for a solid 20 minutes, and wait for the fire department to come and check out the building. Oh and if you didn't know, I live in Minnesota, so it was probably like 46 degrees outside.
And was it a fire in the end........heck no.....ughhh!!!!!! I don't my relationship with the R.A. will ever be the same....
