Parking Garage Attendant Holds Up All Traffic Because Woman Can't Pay
This parking garage in Queensland Australia found itself with a massive traffic jam, after its parking attendant used a payment dispute to deny a woman her exit. In this video, a man from a different car attempts to sort out the situation, but finds the attendant less than helpful over the intercom. The woman in the car claims to have an account where she pays 88 dollars a month for parking, but the attendant insists that it's not with the company that operates this garage. Without $25 dollars on her for a lost ticket fee, the entire garage is ground to a halt until the situation is sorted.
It is unclear whether the attendant is upholding ridiculous company policy, or pulling some strange power trip, but the result is dozens of people needlessly delayed. "Please tell me she got fired," one person says. "Pretty sure NOT letting someone out is illegal," someone else comments. In the end, a third man helps her come to her senses off camera, but it seems that learning she was being recorded influenced her decision.
