May 2 (UPI) -- A Georgia man trying to leave work for lunch found his path blocked by a pair of turkeys that refused to clear the way.

A video of the encounter, filmed Thursday in Alpharetta, shows two turkeys blocking the path of a man attempting to drive out of a parking lot.

The turkeys pay no attention to the honking of the man's horn, leading him to try reasoning with them.

"Excuse me, sir? I'd like to go get lunch now," the man says.

"Alright birds, you win," the man jokes, "Am I being detained?"

The man attempts to drive around the turkeys, but they follow his car and continue to block the path.

"I'm being held hostage!" the man says.

He attempts to reverse to get away from the turkeys, but they continue to obstruct the way out of the parking lot.

"Screw you, mother nature," the man says.
