For no less than 9 hours, the vehicle of a 70-year-old pensioner blocked a car wash.

Having driven his car into the facilities in the late morning, he somehow managed to wedge it in to such an extent that he was unable to move it at all.

Unimpressed, the man decided to call a taxi and abandon his vehicle. The employees were also left at a loss as the taxi driver quickly handed over the man's keys and left them to deal with the aftermath.

According to the police, the man in question had an important meeting to attend.

9 hours passed before his return, with the car still stuck in the car wash. After his DIY attempt to take the machine apart was prevented, it wasn't until a tow truck arrived that the vehicle was extracted.

Some hefty expenses are now coming his way.
