This lazy construction worker proved water a plonker he really is by lshovelling a puddle up a ramp.

Dressed in his bright orange jumpsuit, the brainless builder limply flicks the water from rainfall off the road in front of the site in Shanghai, China, up a short slope.

Barely scooping anything up in his trough, the majority of the rainfall just rolls back towards the puddle.

The lacklustre clearing job was caught on camera by the owner of the Instagram account Shanghai Observed as he was on his way to work on August 7.

He said: “It looked like the guy was one of the hosts from Westworld working on a loop.

“He carried on for at least two minutes and unsurprisingly didn’t get very far.

“His colleagues just watched on and couldn’t care less what was going on.

“There is a common theme in Shanghai that ‘I’ll just do it this way even if there could be a much easier way’.

“He was still doing the same thing as I left.”
