Man looses car in parking lot for 6 months.
- Officers accidentally found the car 6 months later and registered it as abandoned.
- Price for parking alone is estimated at around $6.000.
Ever feel that dread when you simply can’t remember in what section you left your car? Just multiply it several thousand times and you might somewhere close.
In June, a man borrowed a friend’s BMW in Scotland and drove south to Manchester to catch a Stone Roses concert at Etihad Stadium, reports the Manchester Evening News.
He left the car safely parked in an underground parking and as everyone else does, quickly forget exactly which one. He then spent the next five following days searching for the garage, but without any luck.
We can image the guy entering full blown panic mode after the first hour or so, let alone the dreadful call to his friend trying to explain the circumstances.
In August, the owner, who’d emailed local companies and government to see if it had been found, reported the vehicle lost or stolen. Now officers say they happened upon an abandoned car in one of the area lots just before midnight Friday and, after seeing it had been reported lost or stolen, tweeted that they’d found the car that had been lost since June.
“We can’t imagine what the ticket machine is going to say when they finally put the ticket in,” Manchester City Centre officers posted in a follow-up tweet.
The officers’ best guess? Around $6,150.
