"You dropped the bomb on me, Baby"


Yesterday we had a bomb threat at work. (the Albertson's in Tempe)
My boss picked me up and we rode in to find that the entire street was blocked off and a police blockade was up. We parked a couple blocks away and walked up and had to tell about three officers that we worked for Albertson's and needed to go in. We reach the back and see that we got there towards the end of the excitement and see that the threat, in reality, is minimal to none. That's when we start singing super appropriate songs like "You dropped the bomb on me, Baby, you dropped the bomb on me"

My manager is crazy and wild and fun so we joked about going over to the liquor department and making a fallout shelter there.

Work got underway and within an hour costumers were allowed back in but my thoughts were still on what I would do if the threat was real and intense.

If it was a real and serious threat I would be:

calling all my loved ones and saying how I love them
calling all good friends and saying goodbye
forgiving those who have done me wrong
and eventually I really would make my way over to the liquor department

It may seem young and immature to go out drunk as a skunk but if that were an option I'm positive that I wouldn't want to leave this life scared, or worried but with a smile on my face and a drink in my hand.

If that were the case, I would at least like that consolation.

What would you be doing in my case?

I'd probably be right beside you, doing the same thing, haha.

That is super scary though. I remember when ASU had a bomb threat, one time in one of my classes my freshman year, Im pretty sure I pissed my pants.

no idea. and altought we might think what we would do, we actually don't know until it trully happen.
Behaviours on theses limit situations are unpredictable.

I don't know about the drink lol but i guess i would call my family too.
