So the office building I work at has an ATM on the first floor. There have also been construction crews gutting and redoing the entire first floor (removing a kitchen and fitness center and prepping the area for more office space).

This guy drove from two hours away to figure out why the "home company" that monitors the ATM lost contact with it. He gets in and the ATM is no longer there. It's just gone. Turns out that the construction company had moved it. Oh man was he pitching a fit. I figure out what's going on and the simplicity of why there's a problem and a lack of proper professional communication is just hilarious to me. Of course, I'm laughing. He sees the humor in it so he's not mad that I'm laughing but he's still pretty pissed. Great guy, we talked for a couple of minutes on the elevator. So now he's running around on several floors of the building trying to find the manager of the construction company so he can find the missing ATM.

I think someone is going to have a proper flogging before the day is over.

That's pretty good. A lot of construction companies are really disorganized when doing large scale rebuilding. They're doing that to our entire condo complex and they lost our front door for a few days. That was fun

Yeah they took off our front door and the front metal screen door while redoing the siding and "misplaced" the door in our neighbor's condo who were out of town and then couldn't find it. We just had a screen door for a few days

I'm so embarrassed to say this but... I read rape instead of rage, I was mildly infuriated by OP because named it "the best", like what is wrong with you, but at the same time so anxious to click and read the post. My stupid curiosity... :/

Well, it's still mildly infuriating what OP wrote, but reading the comments here, I guess it's a common problem.

That's okay. My early morning brain pulls some serious nonsense online when I try to read things.

I developed and maintain a bunch of bespoke kiosks for the manufacturing facility I work at. Occasionally one will vanish from the monitoring dashboard and I have to go find it. I have one that disappeared and has yet to turn up after like three months.
