Outside the B&Q (the UK version of Home Depot) today it looked like teams of employees were competing in fire fighting drills. I could not tell if it was to increase participation or to instill a sense of urgency when dealing with fire situations, regardless, people would run – full tilt! – towards the fire drums and douse the fire using their extinguishers while still in stride. One unfortunate woman arrived at the simulated disaster only to find her extinguisher could not put out the flame. The closest guy in the picture below managed to put the fire out before he could stop to turn around and return to the cheering crowd! Another day, another amusing event.
