Another Not Normal Day

12 Oct

I so wanted yesterday to be a normal work day.  But it was anything but.  Another bomb threat was called into our company.  When the decision was made not to evacuate, another threat came in an hour later.

This is new territory for all concerned at our company.  After learning of the 2nd call, my supervisor sent us all home.  I really didn’t want to go … by now I’ve got to believe these calls are nothing but idle threats by someone getting their kicks by jerking us around.  But … when someone in authority tells me to do something … I listen.  So, at 10:00 am I was once again in my car headed home.

Only Roger didn’t come home … I knew he was still working … as were most everybody else in the company other than my department.  I really considered going back but thought I would probably be blocked from entering the parking lot. I thought about calling Roger, but that didn’t seem like a good idea either … so I spent another day at home … not that I mind being at home … I love being at home … but I felt like I should be at work.

An emergency employee meeting was held yesterday afternoon.  A security specialist from our company headquarters in Charlotte, NC had flown in.  There is now a $5000 reward for anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of the caller.

But, the most un-nerving news was that they believe the calls are internal … someone inside our building is making these calls!!  

I AM going to work this morning with alittle trepidation, but mostly hope that this craziness will end.
