I had a buddy who had his housemate just change the locks on him one day. The guy said "You aren't on the lease I can throw you out whenever I want" when my buddy pointed out that he had paid the rent that month he got some line like "i'm keeping that, you owe me for pizza I bought/trash bags" or some other horseshit and then said he wanted more money for my buddy to get his stuff back. He called the cops and they said it was a civil matter(of course) and I knew the guy for years and was sure he didn't owe the little asshole money.
The other guy worked at a movie theater from like 3-11 so I told my buddy to meet me there after work. I had been there before and knew that the rear door to the apartment swung outwards because it was mounted on a staircase. I popped the hinges off the door with a hammer and screwdriver and removed the rear door. We went in and he removed his stuff and we took all this stuff to a buddy's house. Before we left I noticed that the front door had a deadbolt with no exterior key. You could throw the deadbolt when you came home but could not lock or unlock it from the outside, so I threw it before leaving
Then when I reattached the back door I put the chain through the hasp before putting the door on the hinges. So now without realizing the door came off the hinges there was no way to get inside with a key because the rear door was chained and the front bolted-heh heh
I went back to the office for the evening and got a call a few hours later from my buddy. "Um hey, thanks for the help but is there any chance you flipped the bolt to the front door when we were at the apartment?""Um, why do you ask?" "The cops are here" "Tell them to get lost or call me" "Jesus, no thanks, they look pissed." "Okay tell them he can take the rear door off by popping the bolt out of the hinges"
I heard some muffled conversation for a few minutes then
"The cops are gone, they said for me to tell you that you are an asshole."
