I was locked inside the carpark!!!

I parked my car at a covered car park near my office. Everyday it opens at 8am till 8pm. If we need to work over time, we will first drive out our car and parked outside. Even if we forgot to remove our car from the car park, when it's almost 8pm, the indian lady that jaga the car park will call to our office to ask us to go get our cars.

Today me and my colleague, SH need to rush on something. We figured out we will finished before 8pm therefore we did not go get our cars. It was already 8:07pm when we walked from our office to the car park. The whole car park only left both of our cars. When we drove up to the main entrance, we saw something.. the auto gate was down, in other words both of us and our cars were locked inside the car park!!! OMG!! Nobody was around!!

Immediately both of us called the maintenance ppl, i called the number on my access card, SH called the number on the car park form. I told the person we were being locked inside the car park, the guy gave me another number, asked me to call an indian guy to come release us. When I was calling the other number, i saw SH ran up to the gate and start pulling something. The indian guy was quite rude, asked us why we did not leave at 8pm. I told him we was just a bit late and normally the gal that jaga the car park will called us if we did not remove our cars. He said how can they called us every day (pls bear in mind we did not always leave late lar...and apparently the gal was on leave and this indian guy replacing her). He was not very happy and told me to wait for 10 minutes.

When i'm done with the phone call, I go seek for SH. He was manually opening the auto gate by pulling the string beside (the person who answered his call asked him to open the gate manually by pulling the string). It was so funny and we both laugh very hard. When the door was half opened, the indian guy arrived. He scolded us for manually opening the auto gate, he said the gate will spoiled. We told him the person asked us to open it manually!! He stared at us and started to manually close back the auto gate. Finally after 10 minutes, we were out of the car park.. Phew~

What a day.. the moral of the story? Don't worked LATE!!!!
