Funny story..

I broke down at 1600, sun going down, getting colder .. was still waiting for the recovery vehicle at 1730 - pitch black, starting to freeze a bit.

A nice newly arrived security guard in a nearby office saw I was freezing outside said I could wait in his office's reception - as long as I didnt touch anything.. as he was the only one left in the building & was getting changed... off he went.

So, I was waiting nicely in the reception but now needed to relieve oneself - luckily there was a large disabled toilet just in the foyer.

I fumbled into the dark room & couldn't find the lightswitch - I guessed it was on the handy cord that easily came to hand .. and pulled it.

Bingo ! .. it was the emergency alarm & the whole place lit up - alarms - horns - flashing lights.. No doubt an ambulance was heading my way already..

Someone else appeared, I explained my error -the alarm was reset.. before my guy came back.. to have to explain WTF was going on to the various twilight folk that were emerging..

I quietly let myself out..
