So I just wanted to share a funny, but at the same time, eye opening experience. First off I'm no sort of LE or military or anything like that so everything I know on both firearms and survival is self taught. I'm sure some of you heard about, or possibly felt the 5.8 we just had about 30 minutes ago. Well I work in a call center for a credit card company and was at work when it hit. It lasted about 30-45 seconds but I only observed with out action for about 5 seconds before I disconnected the call I was on and tucked my big ass under my desk. When I got up to head outdoors in case of any aftershock I noticed not a single person had done the same (and I work with about 300+ others). I proceeded outside while a manager told me to stay at my desk. I kindly told him that he can deduct my time from my paycheck because I would not put my life in danger and I needed to check on my wife. I say funny because imagine what others thought when they saw a 250 lbs man in the fetal position under his desk but I say eye opening because not a single other person including management seemed to know the precautions to take during such an event. And on top of that the level of hysteria after wards from some of my coworkers was shocking. I can only imagine what would happen if they were to put the evacuation orders in effect. I feel people would have been trampled in the chaos. ANYWAY, I just thought I'd share that little story for you guys and get your thoughts and possible reactions if you were in the same situation.
