Please say you have, so I am not the only one who has ever done that!
I went to the UPS store today, where my mailbox is, to check my mail. They give you a key to the front door if you need to check your mail after hours.
This was my first and LAST time ever going into the store when there wasn't anyone in there working. I was alone.
Being in the hurry I am I also left my purse with my cell phone in the car. Are you guessing what happened next?
I unlock the front door, check my box, and then head back to the front door. There is a little lever that says push. So I push of course. And push again, and again. Nothing. The door is jammed locked and it isn't doing anything!!!! I haven't set into panic mode yet but I am quickly approaching as I think to myself how I will survive an entire night in the UPS store. I then realize that today is Saturday and they do not reopen until Monday. Panic starts to set in and I frantically keep hitting, now beating, the push button on the door.
I walk around the store to see if there is a phone somewhere. But who the heck am I going to call? Hello 9-1-1 I locked myself into the UPS store. Yeah right, like they would take that one seriously. I don't have anyone local to me that I memorized their phone numbers. So I look over through the gates they have surrounding the store area to see if there is a phone on the counter. I imagine myself sticking my arm through the gate or fashioning some sort of lasso out of my pants and shirt to get the phone near to me. Then I realize that it won't look good if I am half naked trying to break into the store part of UPS.
I try the door again just to make sure I am not having a "dork" moment and I still can't get out. Luckily some women came to ship some packages and didn't know about the new shorter summer hours so they were panicking with me. One lady took off to the super market to get help and then another lady finds a mail slot in the wall and sticks her hand through. At this point I am not really needing her hand, maybe if it had a candy bar attached to it, but other than that what am I supposed to do with her hand. And then she says in a magical mystical all knowing voice...hand me your keys.
So I hand them to her and she can't get them through the hole because my keys are bigger then the opening. After a few moves she drags them through and is able to get me out.
I breathe in some of the fresh air after being in captive for 4 minutes. Oh how it is good to be a free woman. I am definately never going to jail. I don't think I could make it more then three minutes tops.
What is the stupidest thing you have ever had happen to you in a store?
