A poorly placed package left an American man trapped inside his own home last weekend. Jessie Lawrence, a resident of Dublin, California took to Twitter to complain to the package delivery company UPS. Tweeting a picture of the large package wedged under the door handle -  which left the knob unmovable - Mr Lawrence complained he had been inadvertently trapped inside his fifth-floor apartment. The tweet quickly went viral, prompting some hilarious puns and even some conspiracy theories

"Hey UPS, your driver left this package under our door knob like this and trapped us in our apartment," Mr Lawrence tweeted. "Had to call maintenance to get out." 

Though the tweet has since been deleted, there are plenty of screenshots floating around the Internet, such as the one below which has been 'liked' well over 4.5 lakh times in less than 24 hours.
