So on my street there are 2 apartment buildings, side by side, and they are identical. One of them had an explosion about 5 minutes after I left my apartment for work this morning and is currently on fire…I don’t know if it’s mine. The news says it’s next door but it looks more like mine. I have to sit here and worry for another 3 hours until I can leave and go home and make sure things are okay.
Send me happy thoughts please.

Hope it’s not your building, either way glad you made it out of there safely before this happened. Sending thoughts and prayers your way and to those who are affected by what happened. Very sad, I hope no one was seriously injured.

Oh no that’s awful, if it is your building as hard as it is just remember that they are only material things and that you are safe, missing it by 5 min is very lucky. I hope everyone is safe.

That sucks :(. I don’t understand why you can’t go over to check though. Surely your bosses will understand.
I mean, I know that if I went to my boss and said “I saw the news and I think my apartment building is on fire but I’m not sure so I need to go and check!”
They would say “Yes, of course, go check!”
Sending good thoughts your way though, hopefully it’s not your building :/

@MsGinkgo: Oh no! I really hope it’s not yours and everything is ok. Also hope no one was hurt. Do you have pets? I think that’d be as good of a reason as any to leave work!
I’m sure it’ll be ok 🙂
Also, this could be you!

That is my BIGGEST nightmare (we had an entire building burn down once in my old apartment complex)… especially because I have pets.
Can you get leave to go back and check??

@MsGinkgo: Woah! That’s AWFUL! Can you take a half day or something? I think “My apartment complex may be on fire or the one next to mine IS on fire.” Is a pretty legit reason!

Thanks for the kind words. It is definitely the one next to me that had the explosion. Conveniently I have a couple drop offs I have to do for work so I’ll be going very near my building anyways, I’ll just detour to make sure everything’s okay.
