A woman named Lola Bridger had an eventful first day at her admin assistant role in London, when she became trapped in the office toilet. Lola had finished her day and went to use the restroom, but to her horror, the door got stuck and she found herself locked from the inside. With no way to open the door, she was trapped for half an hour until courageous colleagues kicked the door down to rescue her.
Lola documented her ordeal in a viral TikTok video she filmed before her rescue. In the video, she can be seen attempting to force the door open and even resorting to squatting on the floor in frustration. Despite feeling claustrophobic and overheated, Lola tried to keep her spirits up by filming the incident to entertain her friends.
Colleagues and friends found humor in the situation, jokingly referring to Lola as "the employee who got stuck in the toilet." After her rescue, she celebrated with a well-deserved glass of wine at the pub. Lola maintained a positive attitude and found the funny side of the situation, despite the embarrassing email sent to the entire office about her ordeal.
The TikTok video received over 450,000 likes and thousands of comments from amused viewers who shared their own workplace mishaps. Many joked that Lola would forever be known as the employee stuck in the toilet. Some empathized, sharing their own embarrassing moments on the job.
Although Lola handled the situation with humor and grace, getting stuck in the office toilet was undoubtedly a memorable start to her new job. Hopefully, her future days at work will be free of such mishaps.
