i thought this day would be as normal as i could possibly imagine. with the usual deliverables, calls and reports. nothing can make this different.
as i was going through what i am supposed to do... someone came and asked us to log off our PCs, take our belongings and go down. i wondered what was the order about. i noticed, everyone was packing up too. stuffing their things into their lockers and gathering on the elevator platforms.
and so we followed. as we got into the elevator and as it went down, we were suprised to a multitude of employees waiting outisde the building. but what stood up among the crowd are the uniform clad men with the letters S-W-A-T at the back of their jackets.
just as i thought. a bomb threat. ok. so where do we go? i started looking for people. my former teammates, my batchmates and just basically everyone i know.
and we spent more than 3 hours of "petiks" mode. and as every agent was happy about being in this situation, i was kinda worried that my reports are piling up. and i would end up rendering OT to finish them. but hell, what can i do?
so i just sucked it up. and had fun. it was a night of bonding... like a company camp-out.. or an intercompany camp-out.
at some point, i wished there was an explosion. (well after everybody has been safely evacuated). just so as to make it more exciting. (bad bad!)
(you might have seen this in the news. gma. abs-cbn. rpn. were there. ha ha. sweet short exposure... i wasn't interviewed. never!)
(and as expected. the police always comes late...)
