A security guard’s decision to open the doors in the middle of the night to let a couple out of the apartment has caused a bit of a backlash on social media.
“I’m glad you guys had a good time, but the doors have been locked since I opened them,” the security guard wrote on Instagram.
“I’m sorry to hear about your issues and the frustration this has caused.
I’ve been a security guard for over 20 years, and we are trained to be open and safe.
I understand the feelings of people who have to deal with this everyday.
If you guys can’t get to the doors because they are locked, it’s hard to feel bad for them.
Keep your doors closed when you have guests over and if you don’t have to, let the doorbell ring and then wait to let them in.
We have to do our job.”
The incident sparked a flurry of reactions on Instagram, with many users pointing out that the doors were actually locked at the time.
It’s not the first time a security alarm has been turned on in a public space, though.
In June, an alarm was triggered at a New York City hotel where a man was sitting in his room when it went off.
The man was reportedly upset and began yelling at the guards, saying that the alarm was supposed to go off on his birthday.
He later returned to the room and was allegedly assaulted by the guards.
While this incident is obviously a different one, it does highlight how dangerous it can be to let guests into a building.
The person responsible for the alarm will likely be arrested and charged with assault and battery.
