An Oklahoma man found himself stuck inside an Aldi supermarket after the lone working employee locked up and left for the night without checking for remaining customers.
On Tuesday, he shared a video of the incident, revealing that he had to call the police — who in turn called the store manager — to free him and his fellow accidental prisoner after the only staff member on duty left them locked inside the store.
'During the pandemic, Aldi closed early and the cashier neglected to make sure no customers were left in the store,' he explained.
It's unclear why there was only one employee on duty at the time, however it is possible that the store was experiencing staffing shortages amid the pandemic.
He went on to share several clips of himself in the empty store.
'I just got locked in an Aldi. And they don't close 'til like, nine o'clock,' he explains as he pans to his watch — which shows that it was still only 8:45 p.m.
'The cashier literally didn't even check for customers before leaving,' he added in the comments section.
