So, I'm checking my watching, tapping my foot, and hopelessly trying to get them to
I'm still frustrated and flustered but I think it's going to get better. Then a 2nd Grader falls down a step or two. Nothing major, just enough to slow us down a bit. Then 2 of my friends decide now would be the perfect time to wander off from my line, all the while discussing the books they have from the Library. Yep, the stragglers who evacuated with their books, giving me grief again. Argh! I mean this is only something we practice once a month and discussed ad nauseum during our Fire Safety studies. Needless to say we were slowed even more by this. By now I'm just thankful there isn't a fire because we'd be toast.
So, who knows how long it took the building to be emptied, but I can't imagine it was a record time. Oh well. Ever have one of those days? Ever have one of those drills? Luckily it didn't set the tone for the day and my mild grumpiness soon passed and we were back to normal. Still though, it was the longest 10 minutes of my day.
