I hate fire alarms

So this morning, I was up, wandering around my room, getting stuff ready to go, when as I set foot out the door, the nauseating blaring sound of the fire alarm (accompanied by the ever present flashing light of doom) shattered the peace of hallway.  I hate fire alarms.  I'm an RA, so fire alarms not only mean I usually have to wake up, but I have to make sure everyone else wakes up.  Believe me, I am not a happy person when awoken from a peaceful sleep, and I will yell at you if you are not out of your room.  I will also threaten abuse if next year's freshmen do not learn how to make popcorn properly.  We had our microwaves in my building taken away due to a little stint called: "4 nights of fire alarms  during finals week in the first quarter" and we haven't gotten them back since.  Moral of the story: Be nice to your RAs, and don't wake us up, because it makes us really grumpy.  And also, make sure you know how to make popcorn BEFORE you get to college.
