    I was working that day around noon. I woke up and just had the tv on in the background. Heard report of a plane hitting the trade center and figured it was some dumbass in a small plane. Then the second plane hit. I got Stern on a station out of Chicago and I turned him on. It was surreal. I got to work and everyone else had been there since 6 am and had no clue what had happened. I told my boss who looked at me like ‘quit fucking with me’. He called everyone into the lunch room and turned on the tv. After about 30 minutes, he said fuck it, and sent us all home

    This thread is fine as long as it remains a respectful remembrance of 9/11. Deviate from that and it will be deleted.

    I was at work, and had no idea what was going on. The father of one of my students came up to school to pull him out of class. I asked him what was going on, I thought maybe the boy had a doctor appointment or something. His father looked at me like I was crazy and told me that a plane had hit the first tower.

    He clearly told the office the same thing because they must’ve turned a television on somewhere. A few more parents came up and got their kids over the next hour or so. In the meantime, we all tried to get a TV or radio on in our rooms to listen to what was going on. There were hardly any kids in class the next day.

    My brother in law was on the second plane. It was a long confusing day.
    2 years later my sister in law received his confirmed remains about the size of a shoe box.

    They eventually cut the show off on our station here in Chicago, they switched it to a news feed. That's when I had to turn on the TV.

    Same here, I didn't see any video until I got home from work. I was blown away by what I saw.

    Heard something big had happened at the WTC, went upstairs to the bosses office and saw the horror on his TV. From College Park MD we could see the cloud of black smoke rising from the Pentagon. Eventually they told us to go home. For the next few days, I recall the lack of air traffic. Just fighters doing huge donuts in the sky. Unreal. Sad. Angry.

    9/11 made me understand why my grandparents disliked the Japanese and Germans so much.
    Sometimes its just not possible to forgive.
