Funny Fire Drill

Colleague: There is a fire drill today. When the fire alarm goes off, collect your jacket, exit the building, and wait outside. 

Me: Okay.

Colleague: And don't tell anyone else.

Me: Why not?

Colleague: Because it is a surprise fire drill. People should not know beforehand. 

Me: Then why did you tell me beforehand?

Colleague: Because you do not understand German. 

(I still haven't figured out what not knowing German has got to do with the fire alarm. The alarm did go off, almost rupturing my auditory canal. But I need not have known German to do the needful.)
