I was doing some consultancy a few years ago and helping set up procedures in a brand new purpose built convent.

I told them they would need to carry out a fire drill and came up against some resistance as they all felt it was unnecessary as they knew what to do. I suggested therefore that they carried out one to see what would happen and arranged to call the following week to observe.

When I returned there were posters everywhere telling people that a fire drill was to take place at 7.30pm and everyone was waiting by the fire alarm panel so they could simply go outside.

After a bit of "silent internal blaspheming" I asked them to go to their bedrooms (35 in total) and I would set an alarm off within the next 15 minutes.

When I set the alarm off and went outside to watch (a couple of colleagues remained inside to watch other things) I was greeted by the sight of an 80 year old nun attempting to climb through a 2nd floor window.

She wasn't senile - quite the opposite in fact yet thought this was the best way to exit the building.

Nearly had a nervous breakdown myself trying to stop her as she attempted it.

sounds like the episode of faulty towers when they test the fire alarm.
you are probably better off ignoring what i just said.
