(CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas)  A contractor became stuck Wednesday at a

Bank of America when he was changing a lock to a room that leads to the back of an ATM.  The trapped man couldn’t let himself out of the room because he left his cellphone and the swipe card outside in his truck…”

The contractor kept his cool and began to slip paper notes to customers via the ATM, receipt slot pleading for them to help him get out.  The notes basically said: “Please help. I’m stuck in here and I don’t have my phone. Please call my boss”

-Some customers appeared to dismiss the notes as a gag.  But one called police.

An officer kicked in the door to the room and freed the man, whose name has not been released.     https://goo.gl/dhmjmx
