Thankfuly not, and I don't plan to be. I've set myself on fire a few times though. I'm too clumsy to

nope, thank god. the closest i have gotten was a false alarm from some burning popcorn at my last job. when i say burnt i mean they had to throw away the microwave afterwards. one of the stupid cows at my job put it on 45 minutes. there was smoke all over the place and the smell was there for a few weeks.

the fire drill thing lasted about 2 hours though, so i heard. i didnt stick around. when the alarm went off i took everything that was important in my desk, which wasnt much, and then i left. they
noticed and some people said stuff the next day because they were too stupid to leave and were jealous but they all knew i didnt care. never got in trouble for it either.

i didnt need to work, still dont. i only took the job because i was working with my best friend.
