A HILARIOUS photo shows how a locksmiths were caught red faced yesterday, after being locked out of their own shop.
The ironic photo was taken outside the Timpson branch on Nicholson street, Edinburgh showing a worker standing beside a man with a toolbox trying to gain access.
Bystanders can be seen gathered round the entrance and no doubt had a chuckle at the shop’s expense.
This included Stevie Cumming who took the photo and uploaded it to Facebook yesterday afternoon.
He captioned the post: “You couldn’t make this s*** up. Timpson’s on Nicholson Street locked themselves out the shop.”
The photo shows the Timpson employee overlooking a workman with a toolbox who is trying to open the door.
Stevie’s post racked up more than 350 shares and multiple Facebook users took to the comments.
Kevin Richardson said: “Need to give themselves a wee trophy engraved d*** of the day.”
Joe Stewart commented: “Might dae this get mysel an hour off.”
Ross Indigo-Nine Norris said: “Hahahaha.”
Speaking today, Stevie said he didn’t know how long the locksmiths were locked out for, but thought the incident was “very funny”.
He said: “ Don’t know how long I’m afraid. I just found it very funny.
“Timpsons main service I would say is providing keys for locks. How apt.”
