Park Slope Food Co-op Member Locks Others in Store in Haste to Go Home and Watch Castle


In sort of hilarious news, a Park Slope Food Co-op member antsy to get home to see Castle (yeah, maybe we love that show, too, or maybe we don’t — you’re never getting it out of us no matter how hard you try) locked up early, leaving three co-workers trapped inside, reports the New York Post. Fortunately, they had their wits about them enough to call 9-1-1 (perhaps they DVR?), and firefighters freed them by cutting off the lock on the door.

We imagine that at some point in the evening there was a lot of laughing about a certain someone’s unhealthy adoration of Nathan Fillion, but that’s all just guesswork. The co-op has not commented on the incident.

Adding insult to injury, it turns out Castle wasn’t even on that night due to a special on the royal wedding, but that’s pretty much the same viewership anyway.

There really should be a Castle about this.
