Alarm Bottom

Remember this post about the fire extinguisher?

Well, I just noticed that the same exact wording is on the fire extinguisher in my kindergarten. The only reason that I didn't notice it earlier is that they had put a bunch of shelves up in front of the extinguisher so that you'd never even know it was there. Apparently the fire department did an inspection (read: bribery opportunity) and they had to move the shelves.

It just goes to show you that some violations are so egregious that even bribes won't make them go away (or, it could be that the bribes offered just weren't big enough).
