Elevator + Fire = One Late Assignment

So I wasn't going to post this, but figured I might as well type something about it somewhere.

Today, my school decided to blow up.  Not completely true, but an elevator within one of the departments started throwing fireballs out into the hall.  Apparently it was an amazing view, but I was in class at the time, unfortunately.

So yes, this leads to two things I need to complain about.

1) My coat was in the area where the fire started, so I now smell of burnt wires and plastic.

2) I had an assignment due today that I wasn't able to hand in, and I don't think the professor will care much that we couldn't hand it in after 2.  He'll question us as to why it wasn't handed in before then.  So there goes 3% of my mark.

So yeah...just wanted others to know my pain.  Comment if anything like this has happened to you, or even about scenarios that have caused you to not hand in your homework.

tl;dr  Elevator explosions ruin lives and smell bad.


  1. Wow that sucks, hopefully your professor will cut you some slack.

  2. That sounds awesome (the fireballs), but I'm sorry about your assignment. Good luck!

  3. at least you're alive?... :D

  6. It's my University. We weren't supposed to be able to go in until 12 today, but apparently they opened it early to allow us to get in now.

  7. i think this is high$chool..!!!

  8. Definitely University =P lol...Trust me...I go there =)

  9. Apparently your school's elevator is the 9th gateway to Hell. So THAT'S what the "Basement" button does!
