To not let car out until the morning
AKAanothername · 20/12/2019 19:33
Had a phone call earlier this evening, someone has parked in our private office car park without permission and everyone in the office has now left, locked the gates and the car is stuck in the car park.
The phone call came as we were in the middle of cooking dinner and about to settle down with a nice glass of wine. We have offered to meet them at 8am tomorrow to let them out, they were not happy.
AIBU to think that if you can't be bothered to pay for the public car park across the road and decide to park in a small courtyard where the signs clearly say 'no unauthorised parking' then there is a good chance the gate may be locked and you won't be able to retrieve your car?

This happens frequently in our office car park as we don’t have a barrier - but plenty of warning signs and where we are the parkers are very unlikely to not know this. It’s people using it to avoid paying on the street charges. I’d fek them off til Monday if I’m honest.

I'd have made them wait until Monday. How dare they park somewhere that they obviously weren't meant to, and then expect someone to take out from their family weekend to go and get them out of the shit. No way would I be going today or tomorrow. And if you've shut down for Christmas now then so be it!

this happened somewhere I worked once, except we had rising bollards rather than a gate. Was great fun watching them on the cctv come back to car, scratch head, wander around for a while, come back, try and drive back and forth to bollards, get out, tuck wing mirrors in, try and squeeze through, etc...
