"Our office has just been evacuated by the police! Bomb alert or summat

In this rain, they have no consideration at all

Starbucks cordoned off outside my window, it is better then the tv."

Rhubarb Tue 03-Jul-07 10:45:13

Rhubarb Tue 03-Jul-07 10:46:06

Oh, she works in Manchester does she? We used to get jokers phoning in with bomb scares at the height of the IRA bombings.

Hope it is just a joker.

lots of bomb scraes in manchester centre, apparently there are government buildings somewhere near the arndale but dunno how true that is. i worked on deansgate for a good few years and got evacuated at least 1/2 times a month

I work in Primark, I am the snidey one on the till putting your purchases through without a word...

I got to work and there were police everywhere and tape cordoning off the road

I asked one of those Street Wardens (ie failed copper) what to do and he said "I don't know"

so I went into work and the receptionist said "I don't know"

so I went back down and a Successful Copper ran across the street and screeched at me to GET AWAY, GO THAT WAY <<lots of arm waving>>>

but all the staff are in there, said I <<points at swish office>>

get them out RIGHT NOW, said he

cue lots of running up and down 3 flights informing staff

all stood in the rain whilst everyone phoned home/work/loved ones/the moon

then back in

emailed cod

excitement over for the day (hopefully)

Can you not go home with shock? It has obviously been a traumatic event and you need to rest and recover!

ledodgy Tue 03-Jul-07 11:23:38

So in a state of emergency when everyone else is phoning loved ones, you phone Cod?

ledodgy Tue 03-Jul-07 11:23:49
