Extreme measures in an extreme situation.
A man was trapped in a nightmare after being locked inside the crapper on a train headed to southeast London. His genius way out? Tweet at the railway company to let the train’s staffers know where he was.
News Shopper reports that on Sunday, Steven Staples was traveling on a Southeastern morning train when he went to use the bathroom and locked the door. When he was done doing his business, the door wouldn’t unlock. He even tried using his credit card to wiggle the door open, but to no avail.
That’s when the 38-year-old turned to Twitter.
Although he was stuck in the poopy prison for about 15 minutes, a little girl managed to open the door before the driver could come to his rescue.
It might have taken the staff a while to find Staples, but shout-out to whoever drives the Twitter account: A+ for community management.
