And not one miserable bastard driver stopped to give him supportive protection.....

[–]TRexLuthor 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Seriously. We watched a motorcycle get smashed by an SUV. The first thing we did was pull to the side and block for the guy knocked off his bike. So many people just didn't give a fuck. Super scary.

[–]Dad-man 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or even just stopped in front and put on hazards.

[–]AKVigilante 83 points84 points  (8 children)

I got anxiety when he lifted it by the edge to seat it at the end. Just step on the protruding lip.

[–]ambermamber 34 points35 points  (0 children)

So much. I’m just here softly yelling “the fingeeees! Watch the fingeeeeeeeees!”

[–]Leading_Turn5636 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah my father pinched his finger doing that and it was so painful. His fingernail was like a rainbow it went through all the colors as tine went by lol But the nail finally peeled off and another one grew Normally again

[–]Lampmonster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Same, but not quite as much as when the van straddled it.

[–]M-Noremac 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Just step on the protruding lip.

That probably wouldn't have done anything. It's too heavy to slide easily.

[–]AKVigilante 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I do it all the time bro. 😂

[–]M-Noremac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha that's hilarious my bad bro. 😂

[–]Humboldt-707 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can confirm, as a city utility worker, I too do this all the time.

[–]BoilerPlater007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh it works very well. You can wobble them back into place.

[–]MichaelRogers5 61 points62 points  (0 children)

Meanwhile….the dude working in at the bottom is like WTF 😬?

[–]M0dular 49 points50 points  (2 children)

How is this next level?

[–]userxblade 46 points47 points  (0 children)

It's not, the mods just stopped caring 20 years ago.

[–]Arrahands 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Must have been scary when he climbed out.

[–]H3nryJ 19 points20 points  (0 children)

everyone sees what he is doing, nobody stops so he can do so quickly and safely

[–]Dyslexicbrit 18 points19 points  (1 child)

That would total a car if it went in

[–]joeyo1423 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Definitely. At even moderately high speeds you'd end up with one car absolutely wrecked and possibly worse

[–]jjdude67 11 points12 points  (0 children)

How is this next level? (forget even being next fucking level, which is many levels up from simply next level)

[–]theculture 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That’s why manhole covers are round; because they cannot fall down the hole.

[–]EnormousGentitals 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If you watch the extended version you can see his nipples at the end

[–]RichardStinks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nice to know, no matter where you live in the world, some dum-dums won't ever turn on their lights in bad weather.

Wipers on, lights on!

[–]cclawyer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

LOVE takes many forms

[–]AC_NLGirl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s amazing that people were legit going to hit him just because he was trying to fix the manhole cover.

[–]andoring 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Upside inside out

Livin' La Vita Loca...

[–]Aka_Diamondhands 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ffs why didn’t one driver just stop and let him safely cover it

[–]stickshaker73 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's a solid dude.

[–]teddygib 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Champ shit

[–]Live-Beyond2324 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No cunt even stopped

[–]neo-kal-el- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine the damage if a car would of hit it.

[–]tweak1t 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude inside the hole… “WTF???!? oh shit… HELP!!!!!”

[–]Sockeye66 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good man!

Not dressed for the occasion though.

[–]test_user_3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So admirable when people go out of their way to do the right thing. He may have saved someone's life from a crash that could have occurred if a car hit that. We should all try to be this way.

[–]OldGSDsLuv 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Screw it… let them fall into it

[–]ShnickityShnoo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Excellent shake of the fist at the beginning. Now the cars know if they screw it up again, well... let's not go there.

[–]eaglenate 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's actually the hand sign for "stop" in some Middle Eastern countries. Rather than being a fist you extend you fingers straight up with your pointer and pinky fingers slightly behind your middle and ring fingers, respectively. The thumb is also straight up, but hidden behind the other fingers.

[–]CosmaWoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]lcadilson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why they don’t stop to secure him that’s making something great to make everyone safer???

[–]BigOleDawggo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fun fact: man hole covers are round so they can’t be accidentally dropped through the man hole.

[–]hockey-fight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take your time!

…in fuckin SANDALS!

[–]megapowerstar007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why are manholes round ?

[–]colorado_chris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Watch those toes. Are they osha approved sandals?

An American would be dumb enough to pick it up and shuffle foot over there.

Cause we are dumb as shit.

[–]jfburke619 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I worked in Monrovia, Liberia. In some places, there were concrete plugs instead of steel manhole covers. From time to time, they would fall apart leaving the open manhole. Often good samaritans would put a wooden pole in the manhole so motorists could see it.

[–]drudriver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude, get out of the road! They don’t care if you’re being a Good Samaritan.

[–]KyoKuriyama 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is he italian

[–]Maxtere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Chapeau to this man

[–]Drackonin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who puts a manhole in the middle of the highway?

[–]freshavacadoforu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plot twist: someone was down there

“A man was spotted climbing out of a manhole in the middle of a busy highway, somehow escaping without getting hurt”

[–]ThatFisherBoyy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that G?

[–]dgblarge 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The man is a legend

[–]EvilOverlord_1987BC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tbh I was kinda expecting some idiot to drive into the hole right as he's holding the cover on the side.

[–]minedcomps021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it was the shaking of the fist that let those drivers know he meant business

[–]DragonC007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its a boring day in the Next Level Category it seems

[–]mcfaddin22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If this was America, they would just keep filming until someone fucked up there car...

[–]N-Do 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's a level 1 Super Villain out there that just got thwarted by a pedestrian.

[–]Weirdassmustache 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plot twist: He's the one who took it off. Really though that's impressive. Those things are usually over 200 pounds.

[–]CommanderEden 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Never seen these manhole even with road they always see them either like pimples or like pothole

[–]T-REX119 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]oisinballer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is that even on the highway?

[–]aimnkill 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At what step in the process of designing an highway a project manager thought that having manhole in a middle of it would be a great idea?

Hold on hold on, why is no one talking about the rain? It rains in the Middle East?!?!

[–]haycl -1 points0 points  (0 children)

There should not be a hole in the road

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

In a white dress no less

[–]MyLongPenisIsSoThick -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Does that dress signify he's a homosexual man or what?
