A woman was forced to make the most ridiculous excuse to her boss for why she was late to their work activities.
On various platforms, Olivia crump, a social media manager, shared a video in which he peeked over his front door.
From his third floor apartment could see how the stairs between the second and first floors had been demolished, leaving her stranded at home.
She claimed that her apartment building never told residents this was happening and that she was now trapped inside her own home.
For hours, Crump watched construction workers rebuild the stairs with no end in sight.
Seeing that she would not be arriving at work soon, she emailed her boss with a photo of the stairs and wrote, “A princess trapped in her tower.”
Although the video was quite funny, many people took to the comment section to say that this repair represented a serious danger in a fire.
One person wrote: “Call the fire marshal. This would be a considerable fine for them ”.
A second shared: “Definitely a fire hazard.
“They should have made everyone leave or taken a temporary alternate route.”
And a third asked, “Isn’t the leasing office supposed to arrange rooms and notify tenants in advance?”
After his video went viral, Crump has yet to update if he was able to get down and how long it took to replace the stairs again.
