A temp I used to work with once said he was late because he was locked in the house he woke up in.


This genuinely happened to me once. Stayed over at a mate’s, he left for work and locked me in the house.

My Mum once managed to lock me and a friend in our house when she went to the garden centre when I was about 11.

I once went home from work mid-shift because I’d accidentally locked my housemate’s girlfriend in the house without keys. Luckily she used our neighbour’s flat room to break out using a bedroom window.

This sounds a bit like I kidnapped her but that was definitely not what happened and the jury’s verdict was correct.

A mate once rang me up and asked me to bring him some chips because he was locked in the house and couldn’t get them himself.

Passed him the bag through the window


I had a casual encounter a few years back and she got locked in my flat for the whole day. Bit awkward

Should be multiple choice

Excellent bluff calling, though

I was working from home one day and was offline for a couple of hours.
Once I logged back on my boss said “that was a long lunch”.

I told him I was helping castrate 2 alpacas.


I mean… both surely?
