just keep shopping don’t panic

Ahh, the Eaton Center. Located in heart of Toronto, thousands of people per hour blaze through this mall like possessed children, completely oblivious to the people they’re smoking with their giant shopping bags, or cutting off left and right as you’re walking behind them trying to pass because you keep getting hit by a shopping bag. They’re wrapped up in what they’re doing that hey fail to even take notice of a FIRE ALARM.

Generally when one goes off, you react, but not this day friends, there was shopping to be done. I sat on a bench and recorded and watched for about 3 minutes, and I honestly don’t know if a single other person ( besides the panicked security guards) noticed anything. Maybe the bell is too quiet and friendly sounding? More like a chiming clock then a terrifying call to action?

The geese heard it and they’re out of there. The line ups at Hollister were too long anyway.
