After reading this, all I can say is that I am quite guilty of this myself.
During the intermission to a theatre performance, a small fire broke out backstage that quickly was deemed “out of hand”. As the fire department was being called, the emcee came before the audience who were being seated for the performance. His intention was to keep order and peace and have everyone evacuate without a raving panic sweeping the place. So he decided to be gentle and kind in his announcement.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to inform you that there is a fire that has just broken out backstage and we are going to have to cut our performance short tonight and ask you to evacuate the theatre. Please exit calmly and quickly.”
