    Bomb Threat At My School

    Okay, today (October 24, 2012) I was sitting in my Geometry class doing my work, then at around 10:50 A.M. we were told to evacuate the building. We all thought this was a drill until our vice principal told us to take our stuff, then we got suspicious. All the students at our school had to go to the elementary school and sit in the gym. I should tell you, I live less than a block away so I could just walk home, but they wouldn't let us! Even when my mom called to say it was okay there was no answer. So there we are, 700 highschoolers crammed in a small, elementary school gym, ALL the parents that came to pick up their kids (my mom included) had been STANDING in 35 degree farenheit weather for at least an hour waiting to pick us up. When we eventually went to my moms car, we got interviewed by the local television station asking if we were scared and that kind of stuff. By the time we got home, we learned that somebody wrote "Gonna blow up the school at 1:00" or something. Point is, I learned two things today. 1. Kids these days are stupider than I thought and 2. I really hate being in emergency situations because of the mass chaos.

    Happened all the time when I was in high school. There was always some dumb hick that would write about blowing the place up in the bathroom just to inconvenience everyone else.

    Where I live, there isn't too much excitement so this kind of stuff doesn't happen often.

    By reading what happened, I guess my school is extra safe. We have to keep the class going until the bomb is dealt with, because they think that leaving the class may trigger something and we cannot send any wireless message because they said it could somehow set off the bomb. As far as I know, nobody has ever threatened to blow up the school.

    That sucks. That happened once when I was in school in the mid to late 80's. I'd probably take it a little more seriously now than then. We all were standing outside for an hour or two while they checked things out. I don't think the weather was that bad for us. It ended up being some kid that just wanted to play a joke and get out of school for a while.

    I worked in a foundry for a while, and one day we had a fire. We had to rush outside without our coats in about 35 degree, drizzly weather for a few hours. That really sucked.

    Yeah we used to have these fairly often. I think 100% of them was just some student who wanted to get out of school for a while. Quite convenient that the events always happened when the weather was warm, huh? We had like one or two per week in the spring time.

    Certainly is taken way more seriously in post 9/11 days.

    That sucks! Glad everything is okay. Bomb threads are unfortunately more common than you might think. Between myself and my neighbor and I we've seen our fair share of them. Always more concerning at schools though, for sure!
