Today, a new fire alarm system is being installed in my building. Not only does the alarm go off incessantly, but the elevators stop running when it happens. I live on the 12th floor. FML

Hey this is my post! They've actually been working on the fire alarm system for a few months, but this is the first time I needed to use the elevators when they were out. I needed to pee really badly so I ran up the stairs (in business attire) only for them to start working as soon as I got to my floor!

This sounds like a problem that will most likely exist for years to come with no end in sight. Best course of action: Move to Siberia and adopt a herd of elk.

Call 911 every time the alarms go off... *OH MY GOD, MY BUILDING'S ON FIRE AND WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE... AGAIN* Watch how fast that problem gets fixed!

There's a thing called stairs

(assuming so from OPs workplace) it's gross to sweat, especially in a suit or formal clothing

you do realize it's not their workplace right?

#23, Do you realise how much energy it takes to walk up and down 12 flights of stairs?

install a slide, there goes half the problem

as much as I agree with #51, I don't think that will be the best course of action

you mean you live in fear OP

"Does the alarm going off"

Yes, the correct wording would be go* or is* but who really gives a damn?

Maybe she is from a foreign country and is learning to read and wrote In English

Put on "Eye of the tiger" and start running ;)

Until they fine and/or arrest him for abuse of 911...great idea

The internet has no place for people who can't take a joke sir.

Unfortunately, people are dumb enough to do it like drinking water out of a vodka public or throwing bread at strangers at a club because duck face, getting high/drunk underage and wanting sympathy when they get rejected or possibly arrested.. There is no shortage of stupid.

Love the "we're going to die 'again'"

New workout routine!

Invest in some good ropes and keep it by your window. Probably faster going down the 12th floor that way than the elevator anyways.

or even a fire pole.

Or just build a big slide and leave your apartment in style.

well you can cancel your gym membership until that gets fixed

Bet that got old reeal fast.

Sounds funny, however I wouldn't want to be in your situation. Sounds like a lot of effort but it will keep you fit so you cant complain really

Set the damn thing on fire
