I was on my way to work..feeling like crap and pissed off the the subway was taking forever and I was late. I bounded into work anouncing to everyone what a crappy morning I'd had when a co-worker said to me "Your day isn't as bad as the people in New York." Oh yeah? I responded... And then I found out...and a 1/2 hour I was back out the door...I couldn't take it...

They let everyone off work an hour after I left.

I was working at Lakeside Essex and I went out to lunch and got fish and chips and sat in the car to eat it, then I put the radio on and the first plane had just hit the tower and I sat in shock listening to how it was revolving....

Sleeping in bed from a 12 hour night shift. I didn't find out about the attack until about 8 hours after it happened.

The first time I heard about the attacks I was in a German coffee shop place. The German guy serving actually said and I quote, "I wonder why it took so long for that to happen." Later that day I was talking to other German people and their attitude was kind of like it was bound to happen one day.

I didn't want to mention it, but that was a lot of people's first reaction here in South África too. It didn't really come as a surprise.

I was at work in Rochester, NY. I heard women a few cubicles over talking about how a plane (the first one) crashed into the Tower. As soon as I heard them say another plane crashed into the 2nd tower I knew something truly terrible was happening.

I was working some crappy McJob at a printing factory in Johannesburg. I heard something about it on the radio, and my first thought was, "some drunken idiot has probably driven his Cessna into a high-rise". It was only about an hour later that our boss (whose spoilt, brat-daughter was on an all-expenses-catered-for shopping spree in New York) came in and turned up the radio that we got the full story. Apparently, she had told him all about it by phone.

I was the security officer standing in the middle of our local high school when the first, and then, the second plane hit. Shortly thereafter, our radio's came alive and our Admin. team convened. I'll never forget it.

I was in the middle of my business law class at the vocational center in my hometown. One of the ladies from class had been running late, and she'd heard about it on the radio. Everyone was scrambling to bring up a news site for updates.

I'm so sorry to hear that John. It was devastating for all of us. I was in Florida, the airport was closed, we had a rental car but they wouldn't let us take it out of state, my son called and told us NOT to get on any plane, that he would drive down and pick us up. But I wouldn't let him....the trains were full, so we had to take a Greyhound bus home. Took us 18 hours to get home, and it was a trip in hell. Dirty and cold. But that was nothing compared to what others went through.

I doubt anyone will ever forget.

I was in a theme park in Florida when it happened. They announced that the park would be closing. And didn't give us a reason. I thought some nut was running through the park with a gun or something. We found out what had happened when leaving the park. I couldn't believe it.

Then it took us over a week to get home because the airports were closed.....

Oh I was just leaving work when everything occurring. I thought something was wrong with the radio, in my vehicle because it was cutting in & out. When I got to my moms about 30 minutes I found out what occurred. A little later panic hit because my brother was in PA about 10 miles where another plan crashed. I was on three different cell phones & a landline trying to make contact. I did about 12 hours later. Its a day I won't ever forget.

In preschool/1st grade. So probably in the classroom when it happened. I'm not really sure since I didn't find out about it until some years later.

No joke. I was at the RCMP HQ building in meetings with some Director Generals. It was on live in several of their boardrooms. Needless to say the place was on lockdown shortly after. I couldn't leave until late afternoon.

Just moved to Colorado and was asleep with my wife (at the time) when it started. My mom called and woke us up after the 2nd plane.

We were newlywed and the ex is from Europe. We'd actually just flown back from Philly after our INS interview -- back when there still was an INS. We'd been in our new apartment for about a week and didn't really even have any furniture yet. I remember us spending the day watching on a TV that was up on an empty box, sitting on folding lawn chairs. We both cried...
