I hope the Ambos had a few cans of Harden the F**k Up to hand out.

That’s a bit harsh! As if anyone would have wanted to evacuate their airconditioned office today when it was 38 degrees outside! The fumes must have been pretty bad to even consider leaving the building… unless the evacuation point is in a swimming pool or an airconditioned bar.
