Gain an hour, lose your patience

Early this morning the clocks went back an hour. This is a good thing, in that we gain an hour's sleep.

This is also a bad thing, because it means that, instead of simply setting the fire alarm off at 7 on a Sunday morning, they end up setting it off at 6.

But it was ok, since they turned it off after about 15 seconds. Realising their mistake, at about (the new, all-improved) 7am, the fire alarm may be set off again (waking me and probably everyone else up after having got back to sleep), meaning another fun trip all the way to Lakeside with four hundred foreigners.

Seriously guys, £90 per week should not equate to five fire alarms per week. You're all bad, bad men.

  1. I accidentally put my wall clock forward so I ended up getting up two hours earlier than I thought I had.

  2. So that's why you appeared online so early :)

    I've almost read a whole play, though, so I guess there's some benefits to this early malarkey.

  3. £90 for 5 fire alarms, now that's what I call value.

    What you don't know is that I'm secretly paying the stupid Furners to set off the alarms… it's supposed to encourage you to move far far far off campus.

    Is it working?
