A contractor hired to change a lock on an ATM vault in Corpus Christie, Texas was forced to send “help” notes through the automatic teller after he became stuck inside.
The worker had no phone so he improvised by sliding his pleas for assistance to shocked customers through the receipt slot.
“Please help. I’m stuck in here and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss…” one of the notes read.
Corpus Christie police said most customers thought the notes were jokes but responded after one of the alarmed bank patrons called for help.
