More like rice cake burning.
Another weird, out of the ordinary event happened in the morning. Dad dropped me off at my workplace. I was on my way inside the building when I heard some high-pitched noise. Right as I was near the entrance, a couple of people who were going in came back out saying that they were to leave the building since it was a fire drill.
My next thought ended up being, “who the hell does a fire drill exercise at 7:15 in the morning?!” Turns out that it wasn’t a drill. The fire alarms did go off, and a fire truck came and everything. I found out later that one of my co-workers had decided to heat some 떡 (Theok — Korean rice cake) in the microwave. Well, my co-worker had unknowingly punched in 10:00 instead of 1:00. While the microwave was running, my co-worker was too busy gabbing with friends to realise that the food was burning inside. It wasn’t until the smoke was being emitted from the microwave that the people in the staff lounge realised something was burning. They stopped the microwave and tried to open the window to let the smoke out, but it was too late as the smoke set the alarms off. O_O;;
Good thing it wasn’t anything seriously horrible, but boy the smell was bad in there when I walked in after things were cleared. Seriously. After yesterday’s morning events and today’s . . . I hope tomorrow’s morning is less strange.
Speaking of yesterday, I have no clue what happened to the dude we rescued. See, we didn’t get the two men’s names, so yeah . . . O_O;; Oh well. I just hope he’s fine.
