I was in bed a few minutes ago.
Then an announcement went out over the PA of my 'house'. They were about to test the fire alarm systems.
I ran out of bed, and jumped down and plugged in my IEM's. HELL NO. That schiit hurts my ears. Especially since the alarm is right above me.
I know how that goes. You'd have to be listening to the most ear damaging headphones ever or dead not to hear those alarms sometimes. I put tape* over the one in my dorm in college because that thing was still 5x louder than necessary with the tape on it.
*(Don't try this at home)* I don't want to get in trouble
I have never bolted out of bed after staying up uber late so fast.
I jumped down, clothed up, and put my IEM's in to prepare for the onslaught.
