While getting locked out of one’s apartment is not a rare occurrence, in a bizarre incident, it was an umbrella that prevented employees from entering a WeWork office space after it jammed the door. A photograph of a black umbrella blocking a slider door was shared on Twitter by a user Neeraj K Agrawal along with a caption that read, "My friend s entire company is locked out of their WeWork office because an umbrella fell, jamming the door. No one can figure it out. It s been like this for 2 days."
With over 25,000 retweets, the post created quite a buzz on social media, with people suggesting different ways to remove the umbrella.

While the employees tried various methods to clear the way, eventually WeWork — the American real estate company that provides shared workspaces for technology startups — called an engineer to fix the situation.

The day was saved for the employees after the umbrella was finally removed. However, it did not take long for netizens to convert the image into several memes and jokes. "Are they changing their company name to WeDon’tWork?" read one of the many comments on the viral post.

Can’t the force open the door? I’m sure the umbrella will give way quite easily!

Lift the nose of the umbrella upward with a thin rigid object such as a ruler, coat hanger, or fossilized cat penis
