We had a fire drill today at work. I work on the 5th floor (of 6). By the time I went out our office door, the line to the stairwell was quite long. And not moving.
My alternate plan is to buy sheets from Target and tie them together to drop outside my window and scooch down that way. The building I work in was built in 1959 and the windows can open. It’s not safe to have them open, especially at night, because the bats fly in.
