The building across the street from where I work houses the administrative offices of one of the largest banks in the country. Usually something I don't even think about. Today however, there was some cause for concern.
I got back from lunch and when I looked out the window and saw that the street had been blocked off by the police and the employees were all on the street. A few minutes later there were two huge firetrucks in front of the building and mine. One of my co-workers went outside to try to find out what was going on. Turns out there was a bo*mb threat. Two bo*mb squads were called in to diffuse the situation (figuratively and literally). Made for an interesting afternoon that's for sure.
There was no need to panic though. Turns out the culprit was nothing more than an alarm clock.
