- A young man recently took to Twitter to share a photo of a work accident gone wrong
- In the post, he shared a picture of a car that is suspended halfway in the air with the suspension and mechanics completely separated from the vehicle
- The post absolutely blew up, reaching hundreds and thousands of reactions from people who spared no time sharing their thoughts
A photo of a huge yet hilarious work accident has been shared online. In the pic, a car that is suspended mid-air in presumably a vehicle workshop hangs haphazardly after an obvious mistake.
To make matters worse, the entire suspension of the car had fallen off as a result of the way the car was wrongly lifted from the ground - a costly mistake indeed. This resulted in the employee who shared the pic, Alex B Simpling, aka @curvegodalex, deducing that he would probably be losing his job.
"Yeah I think I’m getting fired today," he sadly yet somewhat nonchalantly captioned the Twitter post.
Soon the tweet blew up, amassing over 333k likes. Many people also headed to the comments section to share their thoughts. Read a few of them below.
"Everybody looking at the body damage while I'm looking at all that god damn oil spill."
"Have you tried putting it in rice?"
"Got fired for this in November. 5th wheel malfunction. The damage was expensive enough, they 'let me go'."
"HOW TF DO YOU DEBONE A VEHICLE??"
"That's what insurance is for and also why fake urine is readily available. Good luck and godspeed."
