This is some dash-cam footage from Russia of a Good Samaritan attempting to fix a flickering crosswalk sign with stick. Things do not go according to plan, unless his plan was SPOILER: to knock the whole damn pole over. Soooooo....is it safe to cross now or what? Now I'm not saying whoever installed that crosswalk did a bad job, because I would have done the exact same job, and I'd like to pretend the jobs I do aren't bad, even though not so deep down I know they're terrible. You know what I got on my last performance review at work? "Fired." Not only fired, they wanted me to pay back a year and a half worth of wages. Obviously, I told them they'd have to take that up with my lawyer, who is actually me wearing glasses and carrying a briefcase. "What's in the briefcase?" Comic books and sandwiches cut diagonally.
Hit the jump for the video while I inspect all the crosswalks in my neighborhood for structural integrity.
Thanks to Zootghost, who's smart enough to know if you really want to fix a crosswalk, you're going to need a special crosswalk fixing stick, not just one you pick up off the ground all willy-nilly.
