This past weekend I put my skis and poles in a slot on a rack that has built in locks if you buy the key/attachment. (All the racks there were this style - Ski Key racks, https://usa.skikey.com/)
When I came back after lunch, I found two snowboards locked into the rack on either side of my skis, such that the bindings covered the slot that my skis were in, effectively locking my skis in the rack too. I was able to twist/contort things and eventually get my skis out after a couple of minutes by pulling the tails out first and flexing the board bindings a bit.
I'm not sure that's anything rude - the racks were nearly full (in the locking slots, and the spaces between them) and I don't know if either boarder noticed. But it sure was frustrating to me.
