Our office is on the corner of the 4th floor of our building, on a fairly busy city street. About once a week we hear a crunch as somebody fails to obey the stoplight or does something else stupid. Most of the office is an open room with about 15 people working in it bullpen-style.
This morning we heard a very loud screech that lasted about three seconds. We all tensed up waiting for the crunch at the end, and then it didn't happen. As we exhauled in unison and started to get back to work, there was a single word spoken.
