Just Like America
one worker, four “supervisors”
They were actually all working, but had congregated momentarily to consider an issue of some sort, and I caught them briefly looking like they were standing around. This truth does not make for a funny post, so I choose to withhold it.

The one guy seems like he’s standing in mid-air with his left foot. You probably caught him as he was moving it, but it sure looks like he has his weight on it.

I’m with Earnie. That guy in the green hat is really weirding me out with his magic left foot.


Maybe things aren’t the as much the same the world over as I thought. Don’t construction workers float where you’re from? —Jeffrey

Am I the only one who sees the left foot planted on seemingly flexible support?

Unless you mean the back pocket of the guy in the trench, then yes, you’re the only one. 🙂 It seems that I just happen to get the guy mid-movement as he was returning from straddling the trench. Does look a bit odd. —Jeffrey
