Ask Not For Whom The Alarm Sounds...

I was eating lunch at my desk at work yesterday, when the fire alarm sounded. I was up, had my coat on, and was halfway to the stairs when I realized that nobody else was leaving. At first I thought that they all were just assuming it was a drill and didn't feel like standing out in the cold, but apparently there had been email notice (which I didn't receive) of a system test between noon and 1:00. So I didn't go stand out in the cold. Still, it felt wrong to ignore an alarm.
