I cannot beleive this is happening… it’s almost 2:00 AM and we cannot open our apartment door. We have to go to work! We are night cleaners. He took out the knob, tried the crowbar, made tons of noise…
I’m wondering why nobody’s coming out of their apt to wonder what the raukus is about… it would be nice if they did that. Then we could ask them to push the door or break in! ARGH…Somebody help us! It is so weird how the door is really tightly warped and swollen closed. We are going to laugh at this later I am sure but not at this moment in time!
I don’t feel so safe here if nobody is noisy about THIS!

Maybe call your non-emergency local police #? They can probably help you get out of there.
Does your apartment have an emergency maintenence line? Really, the door is the property’s issue, and they should probably replace it post-haste if it is STUCK… That’s totally a fire hazard.
(I think you should change your avatar to an unhappy face until you are able to get out)

Oh no! Can you try going out a window??

Oh no! Thats horrible! Can you take off the hinges? That might help. If not call the non emergency police number for help, or a friend. Hope you can get out soon

That sounds so horrible! I’d be in a panic if I was stuck in my apartment. Do you have any friends who would be awake?

Finally got out, after one hour of prying the door open, we now have no knob on the door, just the deadbolt. the door and frame is ruined…. I wonder if we have to pay for that. We had to rush to work and rush getting it all done, now we are exhausted and tired.
Thank you for your concerns! We couldn’t jump out the window because we are on the second floor, too high to jump. Although if we had a fire, I would… but not for this. Not worth a broken leg.
Never thought of the police, and how are they to help out? Do they have a key to the apartment building? Or they have to call the super to get in?
AHHHH…. now we have to get a new door.

Oh wow. I got locked in a room at FI’s apartment before we moved in together, and the maintenance staff kicked it down to get me out. They didn’t charge him, since they kicked the door in.
Hopefully they management will pay for it so you don’t have to! How crazy!
