Man trapped inside ATM slides 'Help me' notes through receipt slot

A #Texas contractor was changing a lock on the door of a bank's ATM room which is now being remodeled.

Under capitalism, money imprisons us all, but for one man in Corpus Christi, Texas, this arrangement transcended mere metaphor recently.

Somehow he ended up locked inside, and having left his phone in his truck, had to resort to desperate measures to get out.

The repairman wrote "several" pleas for help to people using the drive-through ATM, but it's unknown how many notes were passed on to citizens. The police shared one of these notes with KRIS-TV, but one of the officers who responded explained that the cops also assumed that the call was a prank of some kind.

Remember all those old jokes about receiving a fortune cookie fortune that read, "Help, I'm being held prisoner in a cookie factory"?

Sadly, not even the police could free the contractor from the ATM's clutches.

"Please help. I'm stuck in here. It's got to be a joke", Olden told the station. So we are thinking this is a joke.

The contractor was stuck in the room for about two hours before his boss arrived, and police had to kick down a door to get the man out of the ATM room. It was just insane, ' he added.

"You'll never see this again in your life that somebody is stuck in the ATM machine", Olden said.

It is unclear how long the man was stuck in the room.
