At approximately 9:30 this morning, the office manager at a Perth office entered beastmode once again after hearing the alarm for a fire drill. Staff at the office know that once that fire warden hat goes on she means business. So watch the fark out.
We spoke to a junior office member that still wears the scars from her last encounter with the power-tripping office manager. She told The Times,
“We all knew she was a bit intense. A bit of a stickler, ya know? Standard office manager kinda behaviour but wowee once that red hard hat and vest were on she resembled something that would eat its own young. I’ll never forget the dressing down I received when I refused to leave my coffee behind”
To many, fire drills are an annoying waste of time that only really serves to separate an employee from their freshly made hot beverage. However, the office manager takes a contrary view. She told The Times,
“PROCEED TO THE EVACUATION POINT. DO NOT GO BACK FOR ANY ITEMS. DO NOT TAKE YOUR COFFEE. IF YOU SPILL A COFFEE ON THE STAIRS THE WHOLE OPERATION COULD BE OVER. NOT ON MY WATCH!”
It appears the office manager had not quite resumed normal programming yet. A senior staff member told us it could take several hours for her authority-rage to subside. Adding,
“She runs a tight ship mate. I once wandered off from the Supreme Court Gardens assembly point to get another coffee. She got me by the throat and against a tree. Asked me how my family would feel if I got burned alive. I’m not sure if she meant during an actual fire or a threat for not bending a knee to her warden authority”
So remember, when she has that warden hat on, it is NOT a drill.
