$100k from my admin char to the person who comes up with the most amusing caption.

What excuse do the two guys come up with...?

Heh, I was kinda thinking they need an excuse as to why they've put the posts in the ground and blocked their van in a corner as a result.

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] June 26 2007 5:19 AM EDT

What excuse ? Had 2 inches to spare !

If they didn't want us taking the van on the subway they should of sized the doors smaller !

You didn't hear about the flood ?

Supervisor was the one driving not our fault he supervised from the pub !

Flamey June 26 2007 5:24 AM EDT

I don't even know whats happening.

Just before insulting Bast G Beee and GL began to dig their own graves.

QBOddBird June 26 2007 5:57 AM EDT

Common sense boss, if we can get in, we can get out!

Well boss, we just figured we'd carry the truck out. C'mon Jim, pick 'er up and haul 'er out! Heave! *strain*

Seemed simple to us, boss. Figured we'd get out and dry it off all in one run....we could turn the fan on its side, sit it under the truck, put it on high power, and float out while it power-dried! Pretty genius, huh?

Seems from my CMs many people aren't quite "getting it".

I've edited my first post with a further comment for those that are missing the less obvious :)

"Opening Soon: Van behind Bollards. New piece of modern art by GL. Exposing the frustrations of day to day traffic for the professional driver."

"These rubber Bollards will fool everyone! They'll all think we've blocked our Van into a corner!"

"Where else were we to park? It's a Red Route here."

"You think I'm carrying cement sacks from the road to the site with my back? Health and Safety mate. It's your problem about how to get the company Van back out, not mine."

Recent budget cuts at the BBC meant that nobody was scared by the new Daleks, even when they were surrounded.....

A Lesser AR of 15 [Red Permanent Assurance] June 26 2007 10:03 AM EDT

If that's a bank in front of the van, it's a good excuse for a drive thru exchange. After cashing their last pay check. The money they saved with Geico will pay for their room at the Holiday Inn Express.
Better yet it's a good excuse to claim residence. Already have the fence. Later be creative with the ladder and near by camera.

Do you think our ladder is long enough to get out of this confinement?

Pet0sh June 26 2007 2:15 PM EDT

They drove the van in, probably through the bottom, I don't see why they can't drive out.

You do know that the posts were already there and they are putting in the tiles right?...

Funny how one person's misinterpretation on digg can get this picture all over the place.

phrog June 26 2007 2:16 PM EDT

Let's see somebody steal my parking spot now!

Tyriel [123456789] June 26 2007 5:13 PM EDT

"Wouldn't it have been easier to just tape off the posts that were already in place instead of bringing our own?"

"Who cares? It's not like a few pylons will make a big difference."

Later that day, on the news:

"Lacks of pylons in the city leads to a Viking invasion, a nuclear bombing, and the falling of the Leaning Tower of Pisa."

Were being surrounded by mutant pole/alien things!!!

Thraklight Resonance June 26 2007 10:37 PM EDT

Do you have semi-sentient workers who are always getting trapped in a corner? Are your workers constantly baffled by not being able to get out of a sticky wicket? No worries! The British Military Complex has moved into the private sector to create the Harrier Jump Lorry. Now available with a ladder in case your workers get it stuck in the up position!

Side of van reads: "Chuck Norris Post Installation"

A Lesser AR of 15 [Red Permanent Assurance] June 27 2007 2:58 AM EDT

Join Greenpeace today, save our mud tomorrow. Friendly green jacket included with sign up.

After installing seven parking meters at intersection, John & Dave were glad the van was company owned.

A major oil slick outside the offices for the Department of Homeland Security brought a red alert into affect and was placed under quarantine in London earlier today.

...couldn't decide what to follow that^ up with so here are add-on topics for you to muse over. Also DHS in Britain is part of the joke.
-Gas Prices/New source for foreign oil
-Refugees/New government relocation program
-New advisors for the current administration
-Restrictions on public smoking(can change location to Amsterdam)
