Fallen Umbrella Locks Out Entire Company for Days

Sometimes you think just because we live in these wonderful modern times, that you won't get done dirty by an umbrella. Neeraj K Agrawal's friend had his entire company thwarted for a few days after their an umbrella fell inside, jamming the door and keeping anyone from entering the room. Twitter offered thoughts on how to get inside, but these ideas mostly consisted of smashing the window open. Wouldn't wanna be the employee who owned the umbrella. It's alright though, people screw up at workall the time.

    Text - Jose Andrade Follow jandrade If it's a dropped ceiling, easy to get in If not, a wire in between the panels should help lift the umbrella. If not, a tiny hole in the wall will help remove the umbrella. Your suggestions? Neeraj K.

    Text - Neeraj K. Agrawal Follow NeerajKA Let's address some common suggestions: Take the door off: it comes off from the inside Go through the drop ceiling: there is no drop ceiling Slip something through the crack: there is no crack Use a magnet: the umbrella is non- ferrous. I just tested it with a magnet
